Villa striker Agbonlahor maintains England ambitions

Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor is eyeing an England recall.

The 23-year-old has certainly got time on his side to add to his trio of senior international appearances.

"When I heard the comments (Capello's) I was disappointed to start the season being injured as it was going to be hard to be picked for the next few games," he told AVTV.

"Hopefully I will get a few games under my belt, play decent and then I'll get a chance of getting called up.

"For anybody that is English especially when you look back when you are older you can tell your kids you played for England - it's a big thing.

"So for anyone that is English to play for your country is a big thing. Hopefully I can keep getting called up to those squads and hopefully get on."
