Joe Hart: I don't feel established at all yet

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart says he is still fighting for his place at international level, despite being installed as No. 1 for the previous three games.

Shilton says Hart under pressure

Hart displaced Shay Given from City's starting line-up and appears to have cemented his place for England as well. The 23-year-old will make another start during the Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro next week, but he believes that he still has work to do if he is to remain at the top of his game.

"I've played the last three games for England, but I don't feel established at all yet," Hart said, according to the Daily Mirror. "I still feel quite new to City, even though I've been here a long time. I class myself as new and I'm also new to the England scene, so I've got an awful lot of work to do to try and nail down a place.

"My ambition now is to keep playing for City and England. If I'm playing for both, that will mean we are doing well."
