Sven-Goran Eriksson believes Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing has a good chance of breaking into the senior England team.

The promising 20-year-old left-sided player has earned rave reviews for his performances so far this season.

And Eriksson told www.thefa.com: "It's quite possible - he's doing well for the under-21s and for Middlesbrough.

"We haven't had that natural left midfielder for a long time, like a Beckham on the right side or a Shaun Wright-Phillips, so of course I look for that."

sven has again spoken highly of downing and seems to hint he will get a intenational match in february


"If he [Downing] goes on like this, I think we should give him a chance," said Eriksson. "Especially in the friendly game we have against Holland in February.

"I think he deserves that.

"Today, it's December and we will see what happens when we are in February. But he's a very interesting player. He makes things happen, he can beat players and his left foot is very, very good."
