Tottenham Hotspur's Jermaine Jenas has spoken of his delight at securing his first start for England.
England boss Fabio Capello started Jenas in his first game in charge last week after the midfielder had demonstrated some excellent form for Spurs.
And the 24-year-old, who opened the scoring against Switzerland, has put his improvement down to the impact of manager Juande Ramos - who took over from Martin Jol last October.
"I have waited a long time for another start with England - but just have to keep working hard at Spurs, getting games there and securing results, then the rewards will come," he said.
"I feel I am playing good football under our new gaffer (Ramos) and it is all going well.
"He has come in and changed the way which Tottenham have played, and that has changed my game as well.
"What he has done is help Tottenham to become a stronger unit, which has allowed the likes of myself and Aaron Lennon to go on and do what we do best - get in behind, create things and score goals.
"As a midfielder, you have to be able to defend at one end and create at the other end. That is the modern-day midfielder.
"Sometimes, though, you can take on too many responsibilities as a midfielder - you want to tackle back and also create things. Then you have no energy.
"I have to pick out my runs more, when I can get back and just be more clever about my play.
"The energy is there, you just have to direct it into different areas.
"If I can focus that when I play at international level, then hopefully I can keep turning out these performances.
"I have always been in and out for England, and people do question you when you come off the bench for just 10 minutes here, or 10 minutes there.
"It was a good performance in my first start, which gives me a base to work on now."
