West Ham midfielder Parker still has World Cup hopes

West Ham United midfielder Scott Parker still has hopes of making England's World Cup squad.

England boss Fabio Capello saw Parker score a sensational leveller and more than match Frank Lampard in the midfield battleground before West Ham eventually subsided to Chelsea's sheer class.

Parker said: "I always think about England. When every squad is named, I think maybe I could have chance or come in if somebody gets injured.

"I was in the squad for the game in Germany last season but if I'm being honest, I would have thought I would have been involved a little bit more now.

"All I can do is keep playing well for West Ham. That's my main aim. If something comes of that, then brilliant."
