Michael Bridges believes that his Newcastle Jets teammate Emile Heskey is still good enough to play for England.

Michael Bridges has insisted that it is still possible that Emile Heskey could earn an England recall.

The 34-year-old has impressed with four goals in as many games in Australia for Newcastle Jets and teammate Bridges believes that Heskey would not let his country down if he were called up by England manager Roy Hodgson.

Bridges told reporters: "I feel Emile could certainly still offer something for his country again were the chance to arise.

"He's done many good things for England in the past and people who understand the game acknowledge that.

"As for playing for England again, personally I would say why not?"

Heskey's last appearance for England came in their 4-1 defeat to Germany at the 2010 World Cup.
