Roma defender Smalling chasing England Euros place

Roma defender Chris Smalling has hope of making England's Euros squad.

Smalling is impressing at Roma on-loan from Manchester United this season.

"Obviously it's been a couple of years now, but that ambition is always there with England," he told BBC Sport.

"I know that Gareth and the coaching staff have been to a few of my games over here and I guess you know you are in their thoughts if you are playing at a top club.

"I hold those aspirations, and I just try to focus on here and what comes, comes. But I would very much like to be part of [the Euros], for sure."
