Rodwell focused on Everton form

Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell admits he is flattered by calls for him to be promoted to England's senior side but insists he will not be distracted from playing well for his club.

• Pienaar agent renews exit fears
• Play Premier League fantasy

Rodwell, 19, was among those tipped for a call-up to Fabio Capello's latest England squad, but having missed out - with a place in the Under-21 squad his only reward for an impressive pre-season - he stressed that his main focus is on making a good start to the 2010-11 campaign with the Toffees.

"I'm looking forward to the new season,'' Rodwell told thefa.com. "It's flattering to hear those things (about the full squad) but all I can do is concentrate on my job...and that's Everton's first game against Blackburn this weekend.

"I always believe in my ability no matter what level I play at. Hopefully I can get a lot of games for Everton this season and what happens after that is a bonus.

"It's inspiring to see...the likes of Joe Hart and James Milner, Kieran Gibbs and Jack Wilshere (in the senior side) - hopefully a few more can do that too.''
