Jarvis cool over England furore

November 5, 2010

Jarvis is being strongly tipped to be included in the England squad for the friendly international against France at Wembley on November 17. He has been watched by England head coach Fabio Capello and his assistant Franco Baldini in recent weeks. Jarvis was also praised by Sir Alex Ferguson after his performance against Manchester United in the Carling Cup, with the two sides meeting again at Old Trafford tomorrow in the Premier League. But Jarvis, who also impressed against Chelsea and Manchester City in the past fortnight, has his feet firmly on the ground. He said: "If Sir Alex was impressed by what he saw, that's fantastic coming from a manager of such standing in the game. "But I've got to stay focused and keep doing well for Wolves and making sure my performances don't drop. "I'm playing well and everything seems to be going well at the moment. "I'm enjoying playing against these (big-name) players. I love taking them on and seeing how I fare against them." But, when asked if he is good enough to play for England, Jarvis said: "It's hard for me to say. If it happens it would be fantastic for me. "It's one of the things I've always wanted to do. But I'm not assuming anything yet."
