The 21-year-old has been in excellent for Swansea since his move from Liverpool in the summer.

Shelvey has one England cap to his name after playing against San Marino earlier in the World Cup qualifying campaign, and he believes he could still make the plane to Brazil next summer.

"The senior squad is where I want to be. There's nothing more that I would like to do than be on that plane to Brazil," said Shelvey.

"It's down to me. It's in my hands to go and prove myself to the England manager.

"If I can keep playing the way I have been in the last couple of games then who knows?

"I spoke to Roy Hodgson before the first game of the season. He said he would take me with the seniors, but there was no point because he could only offer me 10 or 15 minutes at the end of a game.

"He said he'd rather I played for the Under 21s. We played Scotland, I scored and he was the manager.

"Since then, nothing has really happened. I have changed my phone number though!"

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.
