Aston Villa winger Ashley Young believes he can repeat the form that has earned him a reputation as the Premier League's dead ball specialist and the master of the assist if he is called up to the England squad later this week.

Young is one of a handful of Villa players awaiting Friday's announcement of England manager Fabio Capello's new squad for the international friendly with Switzerland at Wembley on February 6.

And while the 22-year-old insists he is not hanging on the end of the telephone waiting for news, he has made it clear that should his services be required by the Italian, he will not disappoint.

The youngster, who joined Villa from Watford in a £9 million move last year, said: "If I do get the call-up I will do as well for England as I do for Villa, maybe even better.

"I didn't know Capello was at the Blackburn game until someone said at the end but my priority is just concentrating on myself and how well I can do for Villa.

"If I can do that then hopefully playing for the national team will take care of itself. I won't spend any time dwelling on a call-up if I get one. I just want to do well for Villa and then for England.

"Hopefully I will get a call-up. If I am in the squad then I will go down there and do my best and keep doing my best for Villa."

The player was disappointed that Villa could not crack a stubborn Blackburn side on Saturday and once again had to come from behind to snatch a point in the 1-1 draw at Villa Park.

A victory and three points would have elevated Martin O'Neill's men into fourth place and the Champions League positions but they did at least extend their unbeaten run to eight matches.

Young said: "I think in the second half we wanted to get the ball down and pass it and we did that. We hit the bar and had one ruled out and I think we felt we might have just got all three points overall in the game.

"The game was a bit different in the first half but in the end we felt we could have just nicked it.

"We got the point and I suppose having been one-nil down and Blackburn having got a penalty we should be happy in the end how things went.

"I was just happy though in getting that free-kick. I am really happy with that."

Young revealed those deadly free-kicks are perfected during hours of practice on the training field at Villa's Bodymoor Heath complex.

Young, who also saw a second free-kick skim Brad Friedel's cross bar, said: "I do practise my free-kicks and luckily for me what I have done in training has paid off. To be honest my second free-kick was actually a cross but it went pretty close to the goal so I will take it as a shot!

"We know we could have been fourth today so we are a bit disappointed but we are still up there.

"We have got another point now and hopefully come the end of the season we will have finished fourth and had a really good season.

"We are serious about the Champions League and aiming as high as possible. We started the season just wanting to finish in the European positions and now we want to just finish as high as possible.

"There are several teams on the same points including Liverpool but we tend to just concentrate on ourselves."

Young is suspended for Sunday's trip to Fulham and Craven Cottage but says the team are upbeat and looking forward to the challenge.

"We are looking forward to the game and going there and getting three points," he said. "Obviously I am suspended which doesn't help me because I want to play every game just like every player.

"I want to play every game and do well but unfortunately it is just one of those things."

Young, whose suspension comes from his bookings point tally, could now snatch a well earned rest having been an ever-present this season.

But the football-mad youngster is just as happy carrying on with his training and those dead ball moves.

He quipped: "If the manager wants to give me a few days off now that would be nice but I want to be in and around the training ground."
