AFC Bournemouth left back Charlie Daniels remains philosophical about his chances of representing England.
After enjoying two promotions with the Cherries from League One in 2013 and from the Championship in 2015, the left back enjoyed the form of his career during the first half of the 2015/16 Premier League campaign.
It appeared that he could have been on the cusp of an international call-up with then England manager Roy Hodgson reportedly watching him closely.
However his call-up never came and he is yet to be called up by Sam Allardyce of Gareth Southgate, who subsequently followed Hodgson after the UEFA European Championships disappointment.
Daniels told the Daily Echo…
‘I can only control what I do. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn`t, it doesn`t. I`m just working as hard as I can to try to perform for Bournemouth. That`s all I can do.”
‘We’ve had a couple of great games going into the break and maybe it has come at the wrong time,”
“But you know our philosophy, we`ll work hard during these two weeks and come the next game we`ll be firing on all cylinders.’
Neil Dawson said…
‘Personally I still think Daniels (from the cup ties where we saw Smith not be that convincing against lower opposition) is worth playing back into form but I recognise I am becoming more and more a minority on that one. I think people are looking for faults with him now and other than his admittedly glaring one I thought he generally kept Amrabat very quiet, particularly in front of us first half. – Join the conversation here.
