Tom Huddlestone is hoping to capitalise on playing regularly for Tottenham this season and earn a call-up to the England squad.
Huddlestone has been filling in at centre-back, as well as a string of impressive performances in midfield and is hoping his versatility could stand him in good stead for seat on the plane to South Africa next summer.
Previous England bosses have opted for versatility and Huddlestone is hoping he can move from the fringes of the squad into the elite selection.
“I had four and a half years with the Under 21s. That was enjoyable, but I’m too old now.
“The next step is the senior squad, so hopefully I’ll be able to kick on and get in that squad.
“I’ve been in the last two preliminary squads, but not managed to get in the final 23. I’m going along the right path hopefully.”
