Luke Young is hoping that his performance against Wales ensures he is in the team to face Northern Ireland on Wednesday.

Young put in a steady performance in the 1-0 win against Wales, and is now hoping to prove he is worth a place in next summer's World Cup squad - should England qualify.

"It was a qualifier so there is a bit more pressure on me - having only played 20 minutes for England before," said Young.

"I enjoyed the occasion and would like to get another chance.

"I would hope I am in the plans of the manager, and if I do get a chance, I will try to get in a good performance.

"At the start of the season, I just concentrated on club ambitions. Tried to do the best I could for Charlton and thought anything else was a bonus.

"But now I have pushed myself into the squad and I can try to think about [the World Cup] a bit now.

"The World Cup is my aim now I have broken into the squad and played in a qualifier."
