England boss Fabio Capello has hinted that Manchester City midfielder Adam Johnson could force his way into his World Cup squad.
The 22-year-old winger has been hugely impressive since joining City from Middlesbrough in the January transfer window, starring in their recent victories over Burnley and Birmingham.
Capello will be without David Beckham in South Africa while Aaron Lennon is battling to overcome a groin problem, and the Italian looks set to hand Johnson his first cap in the friendly against Mexico next month.
Capello said: "Adam Johnson [has caught my eye this season]. He's come up from the Championship at Middlesbrough, where he played in a different position, and he's done well with Manchester City.
"Now it's important he gets some international experience."
