John Terry remains a huge doubt with a hamstring injury and Sven Goran Eriksson has stated he will make a decision on his fitness tomorrow.
If he fails to make it, Eriksson will chose between Ledley and Liverpool's Jamie Carragher to partner Sol Campbell.
It looked like Carragher would get the nod after starting England's final friendly against Iceland on Saturday but Ledley reportedly partnered Campbell in training yesterday.
Coach Chris, who has overseen Ledley's development since his Academy days, insisted: "If it happens then that's what he's there for.
"One thing I'm absolutely positive about is if he plays, he won't be fazed by it. That's the type of individual he is.
"I'll be absolutely delighted if he does play as I'm sure everyone involved with the club will be. He's certainly capable and it's will be up to him to go out and show it.
"I can see Ledley playing out of his skin and doing well. He is one of those players who you would see as a good international."
Chris Hughton is confident Ledley King will rise to the occasion if selected for England's opener against France in Euro 2004.
