Johnson eyes England starting role

08 Sep 2010 - 09:27:08

Manchester City winger Adam Johnson is hoping he has done enough to force his way into the England starting line-up during the current international break.

The 23-year-old wideman has responded to being left out of the World Cup squad for South Africa with two eye-catching substitute displays in the Euro 2012 qualifying wins over Bulgaria and Switzerland.

Johnson bagged his first and second international goals in the double-header with what has been the perfect response to manager Fabio Capello following his summer snub.

The former Middlesbrough youngster is now hoping to take the next step into the starting line-up.

After scoring in Tuesday's 3-1 victory over Switzerland in Basel, Johnson said: "The aim is to make a contribution. You're disappointed not to be starting.

"You want to do your best when you come on and try to push to get into the starting XI.

"I've tried to do that and I've got a couple of goals to show my efforts but it's up to the manager."
