Wednesday´s victory over Switzerland was James´ first England start since May 2005 and although he will be only a few weeks short of his 40th birthday when the next World Cup is held in South Africa - assuming that England manage to qualify - the Portsmouth keeper is confident he can play on.
He said: "Can I be number one at 2010 World Cup? Let´s take one step at a time - but I want to be. The situation is simple. I´ve got a contract with Portsmouth which sees me through that World Cup."
