David Bentley has defended the decision which ensured he got a cool welcome from Wembley on his England debut, insisting: "I was doing the right thing for my career."

Bentley pulled out of Stuart Pearce´s England Under-21 squad for the European Championships in the summer citing fatigue after a long season with Blackburn.

But Bentley, whose introduction on Saturday was met with a chorus of boos insists he has no regrets and told the Sun: "I thought it was coming. To be honest, it was probably good entertainment if you´re not on the receiving end."
