Steven Taylor feels England Under 21 team-mates David Bentley and Gabriel Agbonlahor will regret snubbing their country.
Taylor, who gave his all in the semi-final of the European Championship against Holland, says the pair missed out by not playing and that it was an honour for him just to be selected.
The youngsters were eventually beaten on penalties by the Dutch but Taylor says he is proud of the performance the team gave and that the stay-away pair would regret snubbing the squad.
"The rest of the lads worked so hard and stuck together," Taylor told The Sun. "We believe we could have won the semi.
"The players who didn't come are probably kicking themselves now, wishing they had been involved, as we were close to making the final.
"They had their own reasons. But I don't think there's any bigger honour than representing your country."
