Albrighton disappointed by lack of England call-ups

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 300

Marc Albrighton has admitted his disappointment that he is yet to get a call-up to the England squad, but he insists he could not have done anything more in his career.

The winger moved from Aston Villa to Leicester in 2014 and was key to their title-winning campaign a year later, featuring in every match. Despite this, the 28-year-old is yet to earn a cap for the England national side. 

"If I get to the end of my career and I have not played for my country it will probably be a bit of a disappointment in that way," he told 'Sky Sports'. 

"But in terms of regrets I'd say no [I don't have any] because I don't think I could have done any more.

"I wouldn't say that I have let myself down with performances that mean I haven't got into the England squad. I think I have done everything I can to get myself into contention to get a call-up.

"It hasn't been but I'm not going to argue with anyone about that. I'm not going to call out anyone and say 'I should be in the squad'. That's not who I am and how I work.

"I'll keep trying my hardest. Maybe one day [it will happen]. You do sometimes see the odd 30-year-old get a call-up now and again, so it would be great if I could. If I can't then it was not to. I'm a strong believer in fate and if it's not to be, it's not to be."
