The Tottenham midfielder missed the first part of the season but impressed in the win over Inter Milan in midweek and has stressed he would relish a recall.

"Over the last couple of weeks I've thought 'right I'm slowly getting there' and I was pleased with the way things went against Inter," said Parker, quoted in the People.

"England is still at the forefront of my mind. I'd love to be involved again."

Spurs are on course for Champions League qualification this season under Andre Villas-Boas after a scoring a string of late winners to climb to third in the Premier League table.

And Parker is convinced this is an indication that Tottenham are becoming a stronger side after falling away from contention last term.

"I think all the best teams, like when I was growing up watching Manchester United, always scored last-minute goals and I think there is something of that here now," he added.

"I don't think we can put our finger on why we dropped away last season but hopefully we don't do that again and we get the position we need."

Gareth Bale has been a key factor in that success, having scored 15 goals in his last 15 games, and Parker is full of praise for his on-form team-mate.

He said: "At times he has produced unbelievable performances. When you have a world-class player like him in your side, it's pleasing. We're glad to have him here.

"I can't really remember anyone having a run of form like it.

His form is nothing short of unbelievable. He has been right at the top of his game and I think he's said himself it is the best form of his career. He's on fire."

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.
