Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry is convinced he and Owen Hargreaves can play effectively together in the same England team.

Barry has made the holding midfield role his own in the national side since returning from the international wilderness under previous England boss Steve McClaren.

And Barry believes he can work with Hargreaves, who is thought by many to have a similar style, saying: "I don´t think we are similar players. We play in the same sort of position - or that´s where the England manager sees us - but we can both do different jobs and I´m sure we can play together too.
