Adam Johnson: The winger was not involved in the doubleheader against San Marino

The winger was not involved in the international setup for the thrashing of San Marino or Tuesday night's draw with Montenegro in World Cup qualifying.

However, while Johnson acknowledges his personal performances in a Sunderland team who are not safe from Premier League relegation have not been up to scratch, he is planning to turn things around.

"When you are playing for a winning team who are flying then I think it is a lot better," former Manchester City man Johnson told Sky Sports News.

"Obviously it is a bit difficult when you are in a bit of a battle and your personal form could be better.

"I think it has gone through a bit of a tough time as a club. All those factors have a bearing on the squad.

"It is difficult watching from the outside. It hurts watching England play when you are not there.

"I have got to work hard, try and do my best and get back in the squad."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
