I am not different.[LNB]England manager Fabio Capello identified Huddlestone as one of the three most promising youngsters in the country last week, alongside Theo Walcott and Joe Hart.[LNB]Huddlestone was flattered to hear the remarks but realises there is no chance of him breaking into the England team at present.[LNB]He explained: "Capello's comments just add to the frustration, but if I am sat on the bench week-in, week-out, I am not going to be able to play for my country."
