Kevin Keegan has warned Shaun Wright-Phillips he will have to exercise plenty of patience before he can regard himself an England regular.
Wright-Phillips is set to feature in Sven Goran Eriksson's World Cup qualifying plans against Wales or Azerbaijan after being left out of the last two
games with Austria and Poland.
The talented City winger showed he is capable of becoming a fully fledged England star after scoring on his senior debut in the friendly against
But City boss Keegan says Wright-Phillips still has plenty of hard work ahead before he can count himself a star for his country.
He said: "If Shaun is given the green light, it will be harder to get him out of the team than to put him in. I think Shaun is ready for England,
there is no doubt about that.
"But there are players like Owen Hargreaves who have been promised an opportunity and haven't really had one."
I'd play him over Becks at the moment on the right.
