Ledley King admits that he would relish a return to the England national squad.
The Spurs defender is being tipped to be named in Fabio Capello’s World Cup squad, despite his chronic knee problem prevents him playing back-to-back matches in a matter of days.
“It would be a dream to pull on that England shirt again, and what player would ever turn that down?” he told Hotspur magazine.
“But there’s only one place where that starts and that’s here at Tottenham, and I need to play first and then well, so they’re the two things that I always concentrate on.
“Do that, and the rest takes care of itself.
“I’m quite philosophical about whether the call will come.
“All you can do is play your football. You’ve got to make sure you play well and if you do then you give yourself a chance.”
