Fulham fullback Shorey shrugs off England World Cup talk

Aston Villa fullback Nicky Shorey is delighted with his form on-loan at Fulham.

Shorey's recent performances for Fulham have impressed supporters and pundits alike and when the question of a recall to the international fold was posed to him by journalists on Sunday evening, the defender's response was typically modest.

"I don't know about that," said Shorey of an England recall to fulhamfc.com. "I'm just enjoying playing my football. I really enjoyed playing for my country, it was great, but I'll leave that for other people to talk about.

"It's nice to be out there playing and being a part of the Team. There's nothing worse as a player than not playing and it's nice to come back and play in the Premier League with Fulham.

"I'm enjoyed it and the games have come thick and fast since I joined which is the best way for it to be when you join a new club. The lads have made it easy for me - they're a good group and it's a good setup at Fulham. I'm just glad I could come in and help out when they needed someone to fit in there."
