New Cottager Johnson eyes England recall

Andy Johnson is confident he can add to his eight England caps now he has joined Fulham.

The forward completed his move from Everton on Thursday and is looking for a fresh start after last season was marred by an ankle injury.

Johnson, 27, says he had no hesitation about joining Roy Hodgson's side and is eager to battle his way into England coach Fabio Capello's squad for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers.

Johnson said: 'I have a small family now and I think they settled better in London rather than up north.

'Plus, I think [playing first-team football] was a factor behind the move.

'Everton play with one up front home and away so you have four players fighting for one spot, which is difficult.

'I only played a limited amount of games and when I did play, I was up there on my own and could not get going.

'I have England ambitions. Playing week in and week out will help me get back into the England squad.

'England is still in the back of my mind. I want to be in the squad and playing for Fulham can only help that.'

Despite Fulham's battle with relegation last season, Johnson does not believe it will limit his chances to impress Capello.

He added: 'I played for England when I was in the Championship (with Crystal Palace) so I don't think being at Fulham is a factor.'

Hodgson is delighted with Johnson's capture and is planning to build his team around him and fellow new striker Bobby Zamora, who joined from West Ham.

Hodgson added: 'We are fully aware of Andy's qualities and we will try to organise our team around that.

'His record of one in three (goals) in the Premier League is a good record - particularly by Fulham's standards. If he can do better than that, we'll be delighted.

'I'm old fashioned to believe you need 11 players to work hard in your team and all four of the top teams have hard-working players.

'I was not interested in signing a player who'd be a liability to us when we did not have the ball.

'We want players who work had to get the ball and people like Andy and Bobby are team players.

'That's why we were prepared to invest so much money in these players. They can't always have good games but those good players' value will remain solid.'
