Wilson Hopes To Get England Nod

Wilson Hopes To Get England Nod

Callum Wilson says he will carry on doing his best for Bournemouth and hopes it is enough to earn another England call.

Wilson showed watching England boss Gareth Southgate his eye for goal remains undiminished in the Cherries 2-0 win at Huddersfield.

Wilson bounced back in style from a seven-week injury lay-off by chesting home the opening goal and laying on the game-clinching second for Ryan Fraser.

Southgate will announce his squad for next month’s Euro 2020 qualifiers on Wednesday and Wilson insisted the manager’s watching brief did not put him under any added pressure. “No, it didn’t to be honest,” said Wilson, who looked razor sharp in his first game back following minor knee surgery in January. “That’s the type of person I am.

I can block it out and just focus on my performance on the pitch for Bournemouth. “I know the manager knows what I’m capable of.

He’s probably just come to see how I am after injury and thankfully (my performance) was a good one.” Wilson scored on his England debut at Wembley in November in a 3-0 friendly win against the USA. “For any player, when you’ve had a taste of it, you always want more and I’m no different,” he added.

“But I’m just back focusing on Bournemouth, making sure I get through the games unscathed and we got a positive result, which is nice. “I’ll just train as normal and if I get the call, I get the call.”
