During the week, as we all know, AFC Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson wrote his name into the clubs history books.

The 26-year-old became the first Cherries player to be named in a full England international starting XI and on 77 minutes, he also became the first AFC Bournemouth player in history to score for England.

Just over 6 years ago he was on loan at Tamworth and before that Kettering from his hometown club Coventry City.

In 2014-15 he joined AFC Bournemouth from Coventry. His goals that season helped fire us up into the Premier League, winning the Championship title.

The first season in the Premier League was the start of Callum’s injury problems and he missed most of that season, coming back just before the end of it.

He started the 2016-17 up until the end of January, when again injuries forced him out.

Back again in October 2017 and fast forward to November 15th at Wembley, where he started for England and scored on his debut.

So in those 6 years, he has come from playing in the non-league to representing his country, having two bad injuries on the way.

Well done Callum.

Got a standing ovation from people in the section where I was. Not relying on tv pictures, you could see how often Wilson made a move but didn’t get the ball. Thus could have been more involved and I am sure his confidence will grow. Relieved he got the goal after a few misses. Lovely to see his smiling face when he scored! – Join the conversation, click here.
