Gabriel Agbonlahor is hoping a successful first European campaign with Aston Villa can help him win a first England cap and cement a place in Fabio Capello´s squad.

The 21-year-old striker has been in outstanding form for the past two seasons and is counting on doing well in the UEFA Cup with Villa this season to enhance his chances of making the breakthrough.

"I´ve had two good seasons but you´ve got to keep challenging yourself as a player to keep progressing - and hopefully this season I can push on again," said Agbonlahor.
