Man City fullback Bridge will accept England selection

Manchester City fullback Wayne Bridge wants to play for England.

The Sun says Bridge has assured England boss Fabio Capello he IS happy to play in the friendly against Egypt.

The full-back, 29, has been left devastated since John Terry's affair with his ex-girlfriend Vanessa Perroncel.

But the Manchester City star has insisted he will have no problem taking his place in the national side - even if Terry is alongside him.

Next weekend, Capello will name his squad for the March 3 showdown at Wembley.

And Franco Baldini, his No 2, is satisfied Bridge remains focused on England after speaking with the player.
