Midfielder Leon Osman admits that Everton's excellent start to the season has probably helped him earn his first call up to the England squad.

The 31-year-old could collect his first cap against Sweden on Wednesday and Osman believes his club's current form has helped in his selection.

Osman said: "The good form I've shown for Everton has been recognised. I am feeling good at the minute.

"We're playing the best football we've played as a club for a good number of years.

"To find ourselves fourth in the league is brilliant and this has probably played a big part."

Osman said he had never given up hope of being part of an England squad, adding that he has always been a late developer.

He went on: "It's strange but I'm enjoying it. I've developed late. I only became a first team regular at 23.

"I've done everything late so it doesn't surprise me."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
