Gabby Has England Eyes Again

Gabby Has England Eyes Again

Gabby Agbonlahor is fit and raring to go again, and he's determined to not let his injury setback affect his future England career.

After making an impressive return against Reading, Gabby has set his sights on working his way into Fabio Capello's plans again, hopefully in time for next months friendly match against France.

Speaking on the official site, our high flying youngster said:

'It's brilliant to make the step up. Everybody has been saying things about me all season, but I've just tried to concentrate on playing my game.

'I want to keep improving and I've worked hard to get to this point. The gaffer's been great and never stopped encouraging me.

'I feel I'm a much better player this season and I've learned a lot and I'm delighted I made the squad.

'I just hope I stay in it next time because the thought of joining up with a senior England squad is tremendous honour. But I won't be taking that for granted.'

Gabby has also ruled out representing another nation in order to speed up his international career.

'It was always England for me. I was born here, I'm a local boy, I always supported them as a kid, I had the shirt.'

Only if we can have Fabregas, Adebayor and Gallas in exchange.

Thought he had a good game yesterday, especially once he realised Sonko couldn't cope with his pace.

Sonko could not cope with John Carew's pace, let alone Gabbi. There defense yesterday were awful, we scared them to death and what a signing Marlon is turning out to be. The goals he has scored have been crucial and arguably earnt us 4 points alone! I think with 11 games left that he could end up top scorer from the Super Sub position!...

The whole of our attack looked fast as f0ck yesterday. We truly terrorised them. Can't wait for Middlesborough.

that's great gabby. You deserve it. But how bout you focus you're attention on villa and getting into europe before worrying about the england squad. England won't be in anything meaningful for a longtime.

Don't quite buy into this . Gabby is not yet international standard, but the only way of getting to that level is to perform well at club level. Too inconsistent at the moment for me. Has he really got the brains to make it to the top level of international standards ? So many players lose form once in the England set up, i don't want Gabby to get carried away.

to be fair he's started to look up, proof of that was the ashley young goal. Gabby last year would of had a shot from that instead he looked up and saw ashley was in a better position. he's slowly getting there
