Dowie says Birmingham defender Dann can aim for England

Iain Dowie insists Birmingham City defender Scott Dann is capable of England recognition.

Dowie was the manager who signed Dann from Walsall and brought him to Championship side Coventry City back in January 2008.

"Look what young Scott Dann has done," Dowie told the Sunday Mercury. "We signed him for Coventry and he's gone on and done some brilliant things and that's what's important.

"He's got lot more developing to do and I think Scott is actually a year behind players like that. But if he continues at the rate he has done already then why not?

"Scott has just got to keep doing what he's doing and play as well as he is.

"He cares about the game and if he keeps it up then he's got a great chance of playing for England."
