Ashley Young has spoken of his delight at getting back into the England squad.

And he believes call-ups for James Milner and Stephen Warnock also help go to show that Villa’s solid start to the season is being recognized by Fabio Capello.

Young told Radio 5 Live he was delighted to force his way back into England manager Fabio Capello's plans after not being selected for the squad to face Belarus and Ukraine. And he is pleased to see other English players in the Villa squad getting recognition as well.

‘There's a lot of English talent which has been involved and I think it's brilliant for the club and just shows how well the club's been doing,’ he said.

‘I'm just happy that I've got myself back into the squad. The manager has recognised that I've been doing well of late and has given me another chance.

‘I think my form has been good from the start of the season. There's things that don't come off in games but you've got to keep trying.

‘I'm one that's always willing to battle. In the last few weeks I've got a couple of goals and I'm just full of confidence.’

Young is excited about facing Brazil, a team he believes is always one of the best.

‘You look at their record and how much they've won, and it's always nice to be able to test yourself and hopefully I'll have the chance to be on the pitch,’ he said.

‘If you look at their team throughout many years they've been the best team in the world.

‘It's always good to get another cap and then you're playing one of the best teams in the world so it's always going to be a nice test.’
