City caretaker boss Stuart Pearce had expressed his reservations at Wright-Phillips making the trip to America at the end of the season.
Pearce fears the flying winger could suffer burn-out if he is forced to make the trip for two games with England at the end of the season and believes having only recently returned from injury he would benefit from a rest.
However, Wright-Phillips is determined to be involved in England's squad for the tour and he does not believe he needs a rest.
"It's a bit of both, some players need rest, as teams like Chelsea play over 50 games," Wright-Phillips told Sky Sports News.
"It's a good get-together also, and there's team bonding which will help us.
"If I'm selected I'll be there."
