Benty's big chance

Darren Bent will be looking to take his chance with both hands should he get a taste of the action for England against Germany tonight.

It will be the striker's first game for his country since November last year after being recalled to the squad for this friendly.

Darren's form for Spurs, which has seen him hit eight goals in eight appearances, has earned him his place, and he hopes to make it a regular occurrence by impressing Fabio Capello in Berlin.

And ‘Benty' feels he is brimming with confidence having played a key role in our resurgence under Harry Redknapp.

"Playing up front on my own for Tottenham this season has made me a better player and a stronger person" said Darren.

"Now I'm here I want to get on the pitch and obviously you always want to play for your country. Hopefully I'll get the nod for the game.

"Obviously, when you are not a regular, you always feel you have got something to prove. So if I can get the chance on Wednesday to show what I'm about, I will.

"To be involved in a game like England against Germany can only be special and I hope to play."
