England midfielder Scott Parker believes he's playing the best football of his career after his five-star performance against Wales on Saturday.
The 30-year-old's impressive showing at the Millennium Stadium has led many to believe that he can fill the holding role in England's midfield, alongside the combative Jack Wilshere.
And after only his fit cap for his country, the West Ham United man said he knew he had to make an impact.
"I feel like I am probably playing the best football of my career," Parker said.
"I went into the Wales game confident and in form and hopefully I showed that out there.
"The one thing I have noticed in my career is that when the opportunity comes, you need to try and grab it with two hands," he added.
"I thought about that before kick-off in Cardiff. I knew I had to take my chance in this game for definite.
"I would like to think that I can keep going the way I am going and do what I am doing.
"If I can do that and keep impressing the right people, then hopefully I can get a few more caps under my belt."
Parker has been the driving force behind the Hammers' resurgence in the Barclays Premier League and the consistent nature of his form has led to him appearing in both of England's internationals this year.
