'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Retaining Hope

Once you have had the taste of international football, it is always something that you want to get another taste of, or at least should want to.

Frazier Campbell is such a player that is 'retaining hope' of getting another chance with England...

A shock inclusion in 2012, when caretaker manager Stuart Pearce included him for a friendly with Holland, the then Sunderland striker came off the bench to win his one, and to date, only England cap.

He might not be finding the goals easy to come across this season, in fact I think he has scored just three goals this season, but puts in a really good shift for Cardiff with his work rate, effort and commitment never called into doubt.

Will that be enough to earn him an England recall?

One of my favourite sayings is 'never say never', but unless the Cardiff man can start adding goals aplenty to game then I cannot see a return to the Three Lions set-up coming, well certainly before the world cup anyway.

In his defence he is not expecting this, or saying he is thinking about it too much, but does still hold it as a target.

This can only be a good thing for England as it means another player is hungry for a chance, should it come along again...

what I like about Campbell is that he appears to have real fight and hunger. whether he is good enough to break into the 4 or 5 strikers in the england squad remains a big question
