Darren Bent has given new England head coach Roy Hodgson a massive boost by claiming he will be ready for Euro 2012.

The Aston Villa striker has been sidelined since February with ruptured ankle ligaments which were expected to keep him out for three months. He ultimately knows that it will be down to Hodgson, who announces his Euro 2012 squad on Wednesday, to decide whether he is worthy gambling on after missing Villa's last 19 games.

When asked if he will be fit for Euro 2012, Bent said: "I'd like to think so. My fitness is getting better every week and I go out every day working hard. I feel I'll be ready for the Euros. I've been doing a lot of work and I can do all the running in the world on the training ground but what counts is game situations."
