Pacy forward has netted six times in his previous seven matches for his club.
In-form Aston Villa front man Gabriel Agbonlahor says that he has not even thought about the possibility of being recalled to the England national team, despite the player’s brilliant form in front of goal of late for the struggling Midlands outfit, reports the Birmingham Mail.
Agbonlahor, 26, has turned in some eye-catching displays recently to help propel Paul Lambert’s side away from the Premier League relegation zone, with the attacker’s two solo goals against Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon in particular bringing back memories of when the player was first called up by the Three Lions.
The Villa forward has, however, won just three England caps which all arrived in the 2008-09 campaign, although if Agbonlahor carries on in this vein of form, then national manager Roy Hodgson may be forced to take a look at the striker in this summer’s friendly internationals against Republic of Ireland and Brazil.
“I’m not getting carried away,” said Agbonlahor, who has scored nine goals in 27 top-flight matches for Villa this season.
“The way the England squad is now, it’s different sort of call ups. He’s got players in there even if they are not playing.
“The likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, he’d not played much and then he gets a call up.
“It’s different to when Fabio Capello was here because he picked players on form. It’s different in that team now.
“But it’s the manager’s choice and I have just got to concentrate on Villa. I have always said that. Club comes first, and if country comes then it comes.
“If the call comes then I am ready, of course. But we will have to wait and see. All that’s on my mind now is playing for Villa and getting them safe.”
