Aston Villa striker Darren Bent was delighted with another goal for England in victory Wales.
Bent grabbed Englandâ€™s second from a fine cross from Villa team-mate and man of the match Ashley Young, killing the game off big-time.
He said: â€śI donâ€™t know about international football getting easier but Fabio showed faith in me, gave me the nod and Iâ€™m delighted to have scored.
â€śHe told me this morning I would be in. There was a lot of speculation, with people saying it wasnâ€™t going to be me, it was going to be Andy Carroll or it was going to be Jermain Defoe.
â€śI kind of expected not to be playing but the manager has picked me, stuck by me and Iâ€™ve repaid that with a goal and the team won.
â€śHe told the team I was playing and he told me what he wanted from me. I said I would go out and do that.
â€śI was delighted when I found out I was in. I played the full 90 against Denmark and got a goal and I played the full 90 here and got a goal.â€ť
And Bent admits he is desperate to keep the No.9 shirt. He said: â€śIâ€™m finally getting my chance. This is everything Iâ€™ve waited for. Iâ€™ve been waiting for this since I got my first chance in 2005. Itâ€™s been a long, long wait and finally it has come.
â€śIâ€™m grabbing on to it and taking it with both hands. Itâ€™s always hard when you play ten minutes here and there. When you get a run in the side I now have the confidence I can keep it going.
â€śI want to be No.9 for as long as possible. There are a lot of top strikers around. Hopefully Fabio will keep picking me and I will keep producing the goods.â€ť
