Bolton's Cahill confident of becoming England international

Highly rated Bolton centre-back Gary Cahill is on England coach Fabio Capello's watching brief, and the Italian tactician was in the stands to watch Wanderers 2-1 victory at Birmingham last weekend and will be at the Reebok Stadium for the visit of Tottenham. "I hope he (Capello) took some positive things from my performance at Birmingham but I'll just keep trying, give 100% and it takes me wherever it takes me," said the former Aston Villa player, who moved to Bolton for a bargain £5million in January 2008.

"I definitely think I can play for England one day. I think you've got to be positive, got to be confident in your own ability.

"I'm hungry to get there. I work hard and hopefully I'll get there in the end.

"I think I'm improving game by game with my positional play, I know the role at centre-back a lot better than when I first came into it.

"I'm making fewer mistakes. When I first came I gave away a couple of penalties and a few rash things, but now I'm cutting that out of my game.

"I've still got a lot to learn, I'm only a young lad, and if I can keep learning hopefully I can go on to bigger and better things."
