Bolton striker Kevin Davies not expecting further England caps

The Lancashire side's skipper became the oldest Three Lions debutant in 60 years last October but has been overlooked since and is focusing on life at the Reebok Stadium
Bolton striker Kevin Davies says he does not see the chance of adding to his solitary England cap as a realistic target this season.

The Trotters' captain became the oldest England debutant since 1950 when he made a substitute appearance against Montenegro in October last year at the age of 33.

But of the possibility of winning a second cap, Davies told reporters: “It is not something I have thought about.

“For me, it is back to work for Bolton.

“If I get off to a decent start and score goals, you never know but I am not working hard to get into the England squad.

“I am working hard for Bolton Wanderers. I got a cap, which was great, and I hoped to get some more.

“I got a call after the France squad was announced in November explaining they wanted to look at other things.

“I argued back and said I didn't feel I had been given a chance, coming on for 20 minutes.

“It would have been nice to play in a friendly but that chance has not come around.”

England manager Fabio Capello appears to have settled on Darren Bent as his first-choice striker, with the likes of Andy Carroll providing more youthful alternatives to Davies.
