Paul Scholes says that not scoring for England does play on his mind and he
wants to put it right as soon as possible.

"When you're a midfield goal scorer, it definitely plays on your mind. I never
thought I'd go this long without scoring, so yeah, it worries you," he admitted.

"People have said to me before that I'm not someone who relies on confidence,
but I do. If you haven't score for a while it definitely plays on your mind.

"It happened at United a couple of years ago, when I didn't score my first goal
until November.

"It does affect you, as you saw against Iceland on Saturday. I was six yards out and should have scored.

"You have to hold on to a bit of confidence to get into the right positions. I still
want to get into the box and score goals. I've shown that in the last couple of
games. I just need to finish it off."
