The former Crystal Palace and Everton boss feels he should still be in charge of England and, in a BBC documentary to be aired on Sunday, said: "Jealous is what I feel".

I will do anything for the team. "We want to make sure we are here as winners". "If that means the gaffer thinks to help the team out it is me playing there, I am all for it".

"I'd be surprised if the majority of players did not say the World Cup is the biggest sporting event in the world".

Should the England starlet be forced to sit out a series of World Cup matches matches he will undoubtedly be a great miss for his team, with the young striker most recently netting a sensational strike in the final World Cup warm-up match against Costa Rica.

"But our focus as a team has to be on the bits we can control". I know what those tournament experiences can be like and we desperately want to bring that. Constantly trying to improve, playing in a style that we've used in the past year or so and that people have warmed to.
