Andy Goode would relish taking on the goalkicking responsibilities for England if he makes his Test debut against Ireland in the RBS 6 Nations.
The 24-year-old Leicester fly-half has been drafted into England's 30-man training squad ahead of the tough trip to Dublin, after a string of impressive performances for Leicester and England A.
Goode kicked 10 points for England A in their 30-20 victory over France A a week ago and contributed a clever kicking game in atrocious conditions.
And he is confident, as the leading points scorer in the Premiership, that he would be able to handle the pressure of goakicking at the very highest level.
"I wouldn't be a goal-kicker if I didn't think I could handle the pressure,'' said Goode.
"It's no good kicking 10 from 10 if you are winning 60-0, it's all about kicking your goals when it matters most - under pressure.
"I enjoy kicking under pressure and I thought I coped well in those two Wasps matches in the Heineken Cup - games many people said were virtually played at Test level.''
Goode trained with England last month in sessions at Loughborough and with the Leeds Rhinos and caught the eye of head coach Andy Robinson in that A international in Bath.
"Andy has been knocking on the England door recently with his good form for Leicester and I felt he impressed last week in his A game performance,'' said Robinson.
"So he earns his selection to the squad for what will be a massively important game against Ireland."
Goode's next aim is to force his way into the squad for the game in Dublin on February 27.
"All I can do is put my head down and work as hard as possible when the squad assembles on Sunday night," he added.
