Gary Cahill "hungry" for World Cup inclusion

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill reveals that he is "hungry" to be a member of the England squad for next year's World Cup.

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has revealed that he is "hungry" to be part of the England squad for next year's World Cup in Brazil.

The 27-year-old is yet to play for his country at a major tournament after missing out on Euro 2012 with a broken jaw.

However, the centre-back now hopes to be part of Roy Hodgson's plans for the upcoming tournament in South America.

"Playing at the World Cup is something that I am really hungry for," he told the Evening Standard. "I was devastated to miss the Euros due to my jaw, especially because I could have been a part of it. Not playing at a major tournament is something missing from my career."

Cahill has been named in the England squad for the team's upcoming friendlies against Chile and Germany.
