Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge has insisted he is not 'stressing' about his failure to earn an England call-up.
Sturridge is being tipped to be in the squad for next month's friendlies against Spain and Sweden as manager Fabio Capello looks at alternatives to replace Wayne Rooney following his ban for the opening three matches of Euro 2012.
Capello has so far ignored Sturridge, despite the 22-year-old being one of the country's form forwards in 2011.
"If England comes and I play for England then great," Sturridge said at Chelsea's latest 'An Audience with...' event at Stamford Bridge.
"But I am not really worried about playing for England - it is not something I am really stressing about.
"My main focus is to play for Chelsea every week and if I can do that then I am happy.
"It has been a long time I have been playing at Chelsea now and I have not been playing regularly so for me the most important thing is to be playing regularly.
"I could play a lot better than I am and I am getting used to the position out wide. I enjoy playing there."
Sturridge's bid to break into the England senior side has been backed by Blues team-mate Ashley Cole who claims the forward is a tough opponent.
"He is one of the hardest guys to mark in training because of the speed he plays at," said Cole.
"He can go inside and outside and he is strong.
"He should have been in the last England squad and, if he keeps doing what he is doing, he will be in the squad for Euro 2012, no problem at all."
