Stoke City skipper Ryan Shawcross hopes to make his England debut tomorrow against Sweden.

Although he has yet to feature for the senior team, the Stoke defender admits he is starting to feel comfortable in the England set-up and is now looking to become a permanent feature at international level.

He told FATV: "It's always good to come away with the national team and now I've been a few times I'm starting to feel at home.

"If you're playing well, you get noticed. At Stoke last year, we played in Europe and that got us a few headlines.

"On a personal note, if I'm doing okay and being consistent, then I always felt that I had enough to hopefully break into the England squad and luckily enough I have done, so I want to stay in it.

"There's a lot of experienced players ahead of me and it's up to me to perform well in training. Hopefully I can play well when I get a chance."
