After being recently overlooked for an England B game, Blackburn Rovers left-back Stephen Warnock is looking to put club before country next season.
The England B game with Albania saw David Bentley make his senior England debut (albeit in a B game) and the form of Warnock since his January arrival from Liverpool, added to the fact Ashley Cole was injured meant a glimmer of hope was there for Warnock… but it wasn't to be.
Nicky Shorey was preferred and the Reading man played his part in the B game, and then the subsequent friendly with Brazil, although Wayne Bridge returned for the European Championship Qualifier with Estonia on Wednesday.
Speaking in the Lancashire Telegraph Stevie W said:
"Obviously they had the B squad and I was overlooked for that so I'm just focused on doing well for Blackburn next season. If that's not good enough then so be it. There's nothing I can do about it.
"As long as the manager here is happy with me, that's all that matters. So hopefully I can come back after the summer and play well for Blackburn."
Wise words from Warnock, all he can do is keep his head down, as long as Mark Hughes and Blackburn Rovers are happy that is the main thing, England honours (so long as form is maintained) would SURELY come in time?!?! Although with Steve McClaren you can't be too sure of many things, besides the predicable same old names constantly…
