England goalkeeper Joe Hart says he would "put his name forward 100%" to take a penalty should Sunday's Euro 2012 quarter-final with Italy go to spot kicks.
The Manchester City goalkeeper has already stepped up to the spot for his country, scoring a penalty for England's Under-21's against Sweden in 2009.
He told a news conference in Krakow ahead of Sunday's showdown with Italy: "If they let me, I would put my name forward 100%."
"Hopefully it won't come to that (taking penalties) but I would back myself (to take a penalty) in a tournament. If penalties are required then so be it."
England have suffered penalty heartache in a number of major tournaments - losing to Germany in the 1990 World Cup and Euro '96, and Portugal in Euro 2004 and the 2006 World Cup.
Hart, 25, says he's doing as much to prepare for a better outcome should the situation occur: "I do my research, I know where all the Italian players put their penalties. I watch it (the video) on my own. I watch it quite late in the day."
England reached the last eight of the competition by finishing top of Group D having finished as the only unbeaten side out of fellow qualifiers Italy, Ukraine and Sweden.
It means they avoid a clash with World champions Spain, though Hart is equally as wary of an Italian side who are likely to be led by his Manchester City team-mate Mario Ballotelli in attack.
"He could be a great threat, he's a great player. More importantly Joleon (Lescott) knows him. I've never actually played against the guy (Balotelli) but it would be a lot of fun," he said.
"We will just be concentrating on our game. I think Italy are a good side regardless of what team they put out."
Meanwhile, Ashley Young looks set to be fit for Sunday's game having suffered a shin injury in England's final group victory against Ukraine on Tuesday.
Jermain Defoe was the only player to miss training, having returned to England for his father's funeral.
An FA spokesperson said: "All 22 players either trained or did recovery work."
