Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate is urging his players to play themselves into new England boss Fabio Capello's plans over the following months.

Southgate won 57 caps for England as a defender and feels English players have the opportunity to make an impression with the new international regime.

Southgate said: "The great thing for all players with the new manager is they have no preconceived ideas.

"They'll judge them on what they see in the first few months."
