DARREN Bent insists his £24million move from Sunderland to Aston Villa will give him a better chance with England.
And the forward says this is a view shared by England boss Fabio Capello.
The Three Lions claimed a 2-1 friendly win against Denmark in Copenhagen last night.
Bent scored England’s first goal following Danial Agger’s opener for the hosts.
Ashley Young plundered a second-half winner.
Bent stunned Sunderland with a transfer request just days before the January transfer window closed.
And he said after last night’s match: “Since I have been at Villa things have been going right.
“Fabio told me it has helped my England chances by going to Villa and that was proved by him starting me.”
