Aston Villa: Fans react to Watkins interview

Aston Villa: Fans react to Watkins interview - Aston Villa

Plenty of Aston Villa fans have been reacting to the club’s official Twitter post on striker Ollie Watkins.

The 25-year-old, who was called up by Gareth Southgate last week, made his first England appearance on Thursday evening against San Marino.

Watkins came on for Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin at Wembley just after the hour mark and netted the Three Lions’ fifth goal with seven minutes remaining to cap a memorable debut.

The Villa man received the ball on the edge of the area before taking a touch and unleashing a shot into the far corner.

Shortly after the game, Watkins, Villa’s club-record signing, gave a brilliant interview to ITV. He labelled the moment as a ‘dream’, with the clip being viewed over 175,000 times.

Should Watkins make the England squad this summer?
