Clyne: I am good enough to play for England

The full-back earned his first call-up in October but was an unused substitute against San Marino and Estonia and now hopes for a chance to impress against Slovenia and Scotland

Southampton full-back Nathaniel Clyne is in no doubt that he has the talent to be a star for England.

The 23-year-old has impressed for second-placed Southamptont this season, and won a first call-up for England's Euro 2016 qualifying double header with San Marino and Estonia last month.

However, he failed to make it off the bench in both matches but is expected to be named in Roy Hodgson's squad for the qualifier with Slovenia on November 15 and the friendly against Scotland two days later.

"It's always good to play for your country," he told reporters. "If you play well then you get picked up.

"I think I've got the ability to play for my country, definitely. I'm playing with lots of confidence.

"Hopefully I can get called up again and receive my first cap."
