Man City boss Mancini insists Bridge committed to England

After their 1-1 draw with FA Cup opponents Stoke City, Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini reaffirmed his belief the full-back will make himself available for England's friendly against Egypt on March 3 despite the likely presence of John Terry.

Bridge turned in a solid performance in front of watching England boss Fabio Capello.

"Wayne played very well," said Mancini.

"He is a good player who can play for the national team and I expect him to do so.

"That is what he told me and I think it is important for him."
