Joe Cole admits he misses playing for England, but hopes he can remain in Fabio Capello's thoughts following his move to Lille.
Midfielder Cole has not featured for England since the 2010 World Cup exit at the hands of Germany after struggling to make an impression at Liverpool last season.
He has subsequently joined French champions Lille on loan and has impressed during his early weeks with the Ligue 1 club.
Cole, who has scored 10 goals in 56 appearances for England, is keen to represent his country again and aims to prove he is still an influential player during his time at Lille.
"I miss playing for my country," he said in an interview with The Guardian.
"I was a regular in the squad for 10 years and perhaps took it for granted I would always be there.
"Now, having not been picked for a year, turning 30 next month and with the young players having come in and done well, you start to wonder: 'Are they still looking at me?'
"I hope I will be noticed. A lot of people in England questioned why I came over and maybe wrote me off. Perhaps they're now thinking I'm not finished after all.
"It's not that I want to prove them wrong - that would be the wrong motivation - but I do want to prove to myself that I'm still a top player. This is an environment where I can do that."
