Campbell eyeing England call-up

Blackpool striker DJ Campbell has set his sights on an England call-up.

The 29-year-old has made the most of his move to Bloomfield Road last summer, scoring eight times for the Barclays Premier League newcomers.

Campbell told the club's website, "I do think of England, it's a dream of mine, it can be a funny game and I could end up getting a cap."

He added: "I could be another Les Ferdinand or Ian Wright, who both played in non-league football too.

"I've met Cyrille Regis a couple of times as well and he started off in non-league and did it.

"I'd love to think I'm now proving to kids who have had knockbacks and are playing non-league football that it can be done.

"People think it can't happen in this day and age, but it can."
