Reading's Lita: I'll get goals for England

Reading striker Leroy Lita has his sights set on a full England cap after his U21 European Championship heroics this summer.

Congo-born Lita said: "I can score goals anywhere and if it's in an England shirt that will be even more special.

"I believe in myself. I love scoring and can produce. It won't matter who I play alongside if I get a call-up.

"If it ever came to playing against Kaka and Ronaldinho - no problem.

"They are good players but only human. I would just look them in the eye and get on with playing."

Lita was impressive for England Under-21s in this summer's European Championship.

The hitman scored three goals - after a penalty howler in the opening game against the Czech Republic - and was chosen as a member of the team of the tournament.

He said: "England have a lot of quality strikers and I just want to be a part of it."
