Danny Rose is confident he is still in England boss Gareth
Southgate's thoughts for Euro 2020 after making his loan move to Newcastle.
The full-back, who started his country's autumn qualifiers
against Bulgaria and the Czech Republic, joined the Magpies from Tottenham for
the rest of the season in January having found himself surplus to Jose
Southgate watched the 29-year-old in Newcastle's 0-0 Premier
League draw with Burnley on February 29 and while Rose wished he had chosen a
different day to visit St James' Park, he is hopeful he is still part of his
Rose told NUFC TV: "Over the last three or four years
with England, the manager first and foremost, he wants everybody playing.
"But at the same time, he really, really respects and
wants a good atmosphere and a good aura around the training camps, and that
means a mix of youth and older players like myself and people who can help and
are positive and can give advice.
"Obviously, I do need to be playing well, but it's not
just about performances when the manager is picking his squads because you
could be on the road for four or five weeks, so it's no good picking people who
may be disruptive or stuff like that.
"I do feel confident that I'll be selected, but I don't
think I'm just selected on performances. I do bring a lot to the camps and I
know he realises that, and I know he values that.
"I wish he'd picked a different game to come and watch.
I messaged him after the game, and we spoke a little bit and hopefully, I'll
get to see him when the next camp gets announced."
Rose has made six appearances to date for the Magpies
including last Saturday's crucial 1-0 win at Southampton which lifted them
eight points clear of the relegation zone, and he insists there is more to come
from him as he gets to grips with a kind of different pressure.
He said: "No disrespect to anybody, but at my old team,
I'd be looking out for the Manchester United results or the Chelsea results,
Arsenal results, and now the first thing I'm doing is seeing if West Ham has
won and teams like that.
"I have to say it is a different type of pressure, but
it's one I'm enjoying."
