Wigan Athletic winger Charles N'Zogbia has declared he wants to play for England.

N'Zogbia - who has recently qualified to play for the Three Lions after residing here since 2004 - is hoping his fine form this term has alerted England boss Fabio Capello.

He told the Wigan Observer: "I have been here for so long now I consider myself to be both French and English.

"I would definitely say 'yes' if England asked me. And I would be very happy to do so."

The youngster added: "I love English football and English life, and I have many friends here. It would be a big honour in my life, and I would be happy to do that if selected.

"I have spoken to my family about this and they all want the best for my career. And I would do my best to play for England."
