BBC News – Jul 30, 2002
He hopes to persuade Sven-Goran Eriksson to pick him for the start of the Euro 2004 qualifying campaign. However, the Tottenham veteran is still determined to hold on to his England squad place for as long as he can manage… “It’s not hampering my Tottenham career to go and play with England and, as long as the manager keeps on picking me, I will carry on wanting to play. That is still my ambition. “They are a great group of lads and the pride of playing for England is still there, so I want to continue doing that. ”

Sheringham made four substitute appearances at the World Cup to take his tally of international caps to 51. But even that depth of experience may not be enough if Eriksson increasingly turns to youth.
