David Cotterill has set his sights on earning a Wales recall after making a loan move to Portsmouth.
The 23-year-old winger has fallen out of the first team and has not featured in Wales' last four games since the friendly win over Luxembourg in August.
Gary Speed's side men host England in a Euro 2012 qualifier on 26th March and, with star players such as Gareth Bale, Craig Bellamy and Aaron Ramsey set to return, Cotterill is eager to be involved.
So, after speaking to the national team boss, Cotterill felt a one-month switch to Pompey from Swansea was necessary to boost his chances of making the squad.
"We have England in March and that made my mind up about going on loan," he said.
"I spoke to Gary Speed and he said he'll be picking players who are playing on a regular basis.
"The Millennium Stadium will be a packed house. We have Bale and Bellamy to come back and Ramsey has started playing. They are vital players for us and hopefully we can do a job on England."
Cotterill made his Pompey bow in Saturday's 1-0 home win over Barnsley and has won 17 caps for Wales since making his debut against Azerbaijan in October 2005.
