Neville: I'm not looking at an England return
Gary Neville feels his England career is drawing to a close, although the Manchester United veteran has not completely ruled out pulling on the Three Lions' shirt once more.
Neville claimed he would not be surprised if his 85th cap, won against Spain at Old Trafford in February 2007 proves to be his last. The 34-year-old was called into Fabio Capello's squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Andorra last June and made the bench in the second of those games, without getting called into action.
''To be honest, I am not looking at an England return,'' he told United Review. ''The time has probably come for Glen Johnson or Wes Brown now. They have done very well and I think they are the first-choice players.
''It doesn't mean I would turn down the opportunity if it came but it is not something I am focusing on.''
If Neville's theory proves correct, it would leave England's ninth most-capped player one adrift of Kenny Sansom, who tops the full-back chart.
