This is why Callum Wilson can make England’s World Cup squad

first_imgCallum Wilson has an outside chance of making England’s World Cup squad, according to Tony Cascarino.The 25-year-old Bournemouth striker scored a hat-trick in his side’s 4-0 win against Huddersfield, which were his first goals in the Premier League since an operation on a devastating knee injury.Serious knee ligament damage suffered in January sidelined Wilson for nine months, having recovered from a similar problem sustained in September 2015.But if he can maintain his fitness and get a run of games for Bournemouth, Cascarino thinks he has a good chance of making Gareth Southgate’s team for Russia.“He’s got fantastic quick feet and if you give him a chance he will convert,” he told the Weekend Sports Breakfast.“He’s got close to a one in two goal ratio for Bournemouth, which is really good.“Jermain Defoe coming to Bournemouth, being an England player and someone who has played at the top will help Calum.“The problem he has is will he stay clear of injury? Because he is the one dark horse that I really believe can make the England [World Cup] squad.“If he gets a run of games Calum will score goals.”last_img read more
