Villa's Agbonlahor keen to impress Capello against Man Utd

Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor has welcomed the prospect of playing in front of new England manager Fabio Capello tomorrow against Manchester United in their FA Cup tie.

Agbonlahor is being tipped by many pundits to finally force his way into the senior England set-up in 2008 under new coach Capello.

It is something he is keen to achieve but in typical fashion he is downplaying such ambitions.

Agbonlahor said: "I want to play for my country and it is nice to get the sort of praise I have been getting but at the moment I am just trying to do my best for Villa and hopefully England will come.

"Hopefully I can keep my place in the team and keep on improving."
