Blackburn midfielder David Dunn admits he still holds high hopes of making the England squad for the World Cup next summer.
The former England U21 captain has one cap to his name so far, when he played for the Three Lions in a friendly game against Portugal in 2002, but is keen to prove himself further on the international stage.
The 29-year-old Rovers play-maker has been in fine form for the Ewood Park outfit this season and with Capello awarding squad places on club form rather than reputation, Dunn feels he still has a chance of going to South Africa.
"I honestly feel that if it hadn't been for the injuries I would have got a lot more caps, but I lost my way a little bit.
"Mr Capello has proved he will pick players who are in good form for their clubs and every English player is thinking if they hit a good run then there's a chance''.
The charismatic Dunn even joked about how he was captain of half of the players who are now in the England fold and that he believes he can play alongside them once again.
"I look at the England team now and think, 'Bloody hell I played with all these players! I was the captain'," he told the Daily Mail.
"I've had a good start to the season so you never know. But I've played for my local team and I've played for England. Growing up, that's all I ever wanted."
