Real Zaragoza winger Jermaine Pennant hopes he can catch the eye of England boss Fabio Capello with his Spanish form.
The former Liverpool and Arsenal midfielder said: "The ambition is to get into the World Cup squad. I've never been named in a squad, but I've never given up hope. (Fabio) Capello has twice been a manager out here and if he comes to Spain he's only coming to watch one player.
"Ian Wright got into the England team when he was 26 or 27 and I know it can be done.
"My assets are pace, going past players and crossing. I don't think anyone in that squad crosses the ball as well as me."
