Chris Kirkland is hoping to convince new England manager Fabio Capello he has what it takes to become his new long-term number one.

Wigan´s Kirkland is vying with David James at Portsmouth and Aston Villa´s Scott Carson for the starting role against Switzerland at Wembley in Capello´s first match in charge on Wednesday.

"I am sure Mr Capello has his own ideas - but I´ll enjoy it, train well and hope to impress. That´s all I can do," said Kirkland, after keeping a clean sheet to help Wigan to a Barclays Premier League win at home to West Ham on Saturday.
