Wigan's Heskey: I should keep England place

Wigan Athletic striker Emile Heskey says he's done enough to keep his starting place in the England team.

Heskey told BBC's Football Focus: "It's difficult, but I feel I've done enough to deserve to start the next game.

"You have got to look at the team and the squad that coach Steve McClaren picks and you must pick the right team to play the opposition.

"But as a player you want to start all the time, definitely.

"You go to any player and ask them if they want to start and they are not worth having in the squad if they want to sit on the bench."
