Stoke City defender Ryan Shawcross says that he will try to stay in the England squad after receiving his callup for last month's 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

Stoke City defender Ryan Shawcross has insisted that he is determined to remain in the England squad.

The 25-year-old was included in manager Roy Hodgson's Three Lions setup for the nation's 2014 World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Poland.

"If I'm doing okay and being consistent, then I always felt that I had enough to hopefully break into the England squad and luckily enough I have done, so I want to stay in it," BBC Sport quotes Shawcross as saying.

"There's a lot of experienced players ahead of me and it's up to me to perform well in training. Hopefully I can play well when I get a chance."

The centre-back has joined up with the England squad for this week's friendly against Sweden.
