Wolves striker Ebanks-Blake: Capello interest big confidence boost

Wolves striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake admits it's a big boost knowing England coach Fabio Capello is watching him ahead of the Premiership kickoff.

"It's a massive confidence boost," he told The Times. "Any player wants international recognition but I'm not a fool, I know what I need to do. If I perform on the big stage, I've got to be in the reckoning - I'm a young English striker - but there's work to be done, so I'm not getting carried away. Unless I'm doing it for Wolves in the Premier League, nothing's going to materialise.

"Last season was the best season of my life, with the promotion to top it all off, and finishing top scorer. But it's a different ball game in the Premier League. You're playing against better players and teams keep the ball for longer periods. The hardest thing in football is to make good decisions when you are in possession."
