Zaragoza winger Pennant still has Capello hopes

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."
