What a season Callum Wilson has had. The Bournemouth striker scored 14 Premier League goals in the campaign just gone and also made his England debut.
And things could be about to get even better for the 27-year-old, who could be set to lead the line for the Three Lions in their UEFA Nations League semi-final clash against the Netherlands amid doubts about Harry Kane’s fitness.
A lot of pressure, no doubt, but it is a prospect Wilson is clearly relishing. “If I didn’t have confidence in myself and the manager didn’t have confidence in me, I wouldn’t be here,” the former Coventry City centre-forward told the Evening Standard.
“I am quite a confident person, which has got me to this point in my career. I have no doubt that I can do it on the international stage. Having scored on my debut, it put any self-doubt to bed.”
In Wilson’s own words, he has what it takes to do it on the international stage in what is a great opportunity for him to show the football world just how good of a striker he is.
Going up against defenders of Virgil van Dijk and Matthijs de Ligt’s quality, if Wilson can come out on top, his stock is likely to increase tenfold.
Already a good finisher with clever movement, Wilson could be one gigantic performance away from alerting some serious players, with Chelsea having already registered interest back in December (Sky Sports).
Bournemouth fans, you know Wilson best. Can he deliver against Ronald Koeman’s talented Netherlands side? Let us know in the comment section below!
