Paul Konchesky hopes he can still earn a shock call-up to England's World Cup squad.
The Fulham left-back has two England caps to his name, with his last appearance for the Three Lions coming in 2005.
But with Wayne Bridge retiring from international duty, there is a potential place as Ashley Cole's back-up available - although Stephen Warnock and Leighton Baines were preferred for the last friendly with Egypt.
Konchesky, though, has not given up hope of making the trip to South Africa.
"If the team keep doing well, you never know what could be round the corner," he told the Daily Star.
"I'm gutted there has not been more [caps], but there is a world-class defender in Ashley. He's probably everything you want in a left-back.
"Other than that, I know Wayne Bridge has been in there and he's all right.
"But Leighton Baines got a chance last time out, so the position might still be open."
