Agbonlahor impresses O'Neill

18 Aug 2008 - 08:32:55

Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill backed Gabriel Agbonlahor for a future in the England team, after the forward netted a hat-trick in the 4-2 victory over Manchester City.

Agbonlahor has yet to make his full international debut for England, but O'Neill says that time is still on the side of the talented 21-year-old.

He commented: "You could see the confidence go flooding into Gabby once he had scored that first goal. The other two goals were magnificent and I was delighted for him.

"In terms of England, his time will come. It is a long season and he knows what is ahead. This is a great start for him.

"I was a bit surprised Ashley Young did not get in the England squad, but his time will come as well.

"I have no doubts whatsoever that they will make it through."
