England manager Gareth Southgate will name his squad later today having previously watch AFC Bournemouth’s trip to Huddersfield Town over the weekend, where Cherries striker Callum Wilson returned to notch one goal and assist the other in AFC Bournemouth’s 2-0 victory.

England face the Czech Republic at Wembley on 22nd March and then make the trip to Montenegro on 25th March as part of their campaign to qualify UEFA European Championships to be held in 2020.

Wilson will have some strong competition for a place in the side with captain Harry Kane in fine form for Tottenham Hotspur and Marcus Rashford impressing for Manchester United.

But having been part of the previous squad where he scored on his debut in a friendly over the United States of America, Wilson will be hoping that he will be included in Southgate’s squad.

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told

“He’s outstanding, he has unique attributes for us with his ability to run in behind and his work ethic.

“He knows where the goal is and it was great to see him score (on his return), he also provided an impressive assist for Ryan in a key moment in the game with a great reverse pass.

“My priority is to make sure he’s fit and fine, he might be looking at the England situation but I’m pleased to see him score and play well.”

I’m seeing what makes the Wilson/King partnership effective now. It’s so much that their interplay is particularly good; more so that Wilson is much more of a handful, which gives King more space to operate in. Both fantastic against Huddersfield. – Join the conversation, click here.
