​Ings still determined to represent Three Lions

Liverpool forward Danny Ings has refused to give up on his dream of playing for England again despite missing much of the Premier League season so far with a serious knee injury.

Ings said that pulling on a Three Lions jersey again was one the many things motivating him as he continues his recovery from a torn anterior cruiciate ligament.

Ings said: "My dream as a child was to play for England and to represent my country and I got that opportunity. I had just got my foot in the door and all of sudden it was slammed on my toes. But I don't think that dream is over for me. I am not one of those guys who gets a cap and I am going to fall away now.

"Hopefully when I am fit I can get back in the manager's thoughts and see where it takes me. He left a voicemail message for me and some texts. It gives me fire in my belly to go again."
