Everton ace Leon Osman insists he has not given up on his dream of playing for England, despite now being in his 30s.

The midfielder has long been tipped to make the senior squad but, despite being a constant presence in Everton's midfield in recent years, he has been over-looked.

Osman, who also qualifies to play for Turkey and Cyprus, says he has not given up on his dream of playing for England.

"I wouldn't say I have accepted getting called up for England is going to elude me," he said.

"As you start to get 30-plus, the chances start to diminish, but, as an English lad, you still keep going for your club and if it ever happens that would be great."
