Matt wants to Cap fine form

Midweek Sport - - SPORT - By JOHN PERCY

MATT JARVIS is on a mis­sion to gate­crash Fabio Capello’s Euro 2012 squad and prove he’s no one-cap won­der.

Wolves winger Jarvis is eye­ing a re­turn to the Eng­land set-up af­ter a frus­trat­ing nine months at Mo­lineux.

Jarvis earned his first cap un­der Capello in the friendly with Ghana in March, ap­pear­ing as a sec­ond-half sub­sti­tute.

But the 25-year-old hasn’t been se­lected since – af­ter suf­fer­ing a loss of form and ri­val teams set­ting out to stop him.

But Jarvis has im­pressed over the last four games and is de­ter­mined to give Capello a timely nudge in the ribs.


He said: “That’s the aim – I want to be play­ing for my coun­try so I want more.

“It was a fan­tas­tic hon­our to play the last 25 min­utes and I’m work­ing ex­tremely hard to get back in the squad.

“There are fan­tas­tic play­ers in my po­si­tion so it will be tough, but I am work­ing ex­tremely hard to get a sniff.

“The man­ager and I spoke and de­cided to go back to do­ing what I do best – which is get­ting the ball wide, one-on-one against the full-back and sup­ply­ing crosses.

“It was a ques­tion of mak­ing things sim­ple. It’s been nice to get out there, play with no fear and have some joy.”
