'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Video: Barry Battles For England Place

Having been a regular in the England midfield throughout Fabio Capello's reign in charge, Gareth Barry admits he now faces a real battle to earn a place in the team.

'There's a few of us vying for places, myself, Scotty Parker, Jack and Frank Lampard too, so we have good choices in there,' said Barry ahead of the weekend trip to Wales.

'All four of us are slightly different players, so the Manager has got a few options when it comes to central midfield and if he wants to change it then he has got the players to do it.'

'I've never come to an England squad and expected to be in the team. When players burst onto the scene like Jack and James, it's extra competition.'

'I'm still training hard and hoping to be selected but it's good for England that players are coming through and making it harder to keep your place.'
