Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey targeting regular England role
2nd September 2015
Jonjo Shelvey is targeting a first start for England as he aims to become the first Swansea City player to represent the Three Lions.
The midfielder, who made his international debut in 2012, has been included in Roy Hodgson's squad for the Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Switzerland.
Shelvey has been in inspired form for the Swans this season with Garry Monk's side currently unbeaten after four games of the Barclays Premier League season.
The 23-year-old, who last year became the first Swan to be called up by England while at the club, now hopes to win his second cap for his country.
"I just want to get a start and then it's down to me to cement my place in the squad and go back to my club and perform on a consistent basis," said Shelvey.
"It's down to Roy if I get to start. I will play anywhere for my country. It's just an honour to be here. Hopefully I get a chance to start a game and show everyone what I can do."
