Beattie wanted more England chances
- From the section Football
James Beattie tells BBC Sport that he was disappointed not to be given more opportunities at international level with England.
Beattie, then with Southampton, was one of the most prolific strikers in the Premier League when he won the first of his five caps in 2003.
He adds that his failure to establish himself at international level may have been affected by the "cliquey" nature of the England squad at the time, and his appearance in a television documentary following the national team ahead of Euro 2004.
