Hamburg's Mancienne targeting England call-up

Hamburg defender Michael Mancienne is hoping to force his way into Roy Hodgson's England squad.

The 25-year old, who was a regular performer at all levels of England youth teams, has enjoyed a fairly successful season in Germany and would love to get his chance to prove himself on the international scene.

"I feel I do offer a different option because it is a more international kind of football in the Bundesliga than the Premier League," the former Chelsea man told the Daily Mail.

"Sometimes people only focus on the Premier League, but if you are playing well you should be noticed wherever you are playing.

"I am really happy out here and want to make a name for myself and hopefully Roy will see how much I am progressing."
