Wolves: Max Kilman backed to receive England call-up

Wolves: Max Kilman backed to receive England call-up -Wolves

Wolves defender Max Kilman is one of the best defenders in the country and could receive an England call-up, according to journalist Dean Jones.

The Lowdown: Kilman excelling for Wolves

Bruno Lage’s side have been an expertly-drilled defensive outfit throughout this season, with numerous players standing out. Kilman has arguably been as good as anyone, starting 25 Premier League games and averaging 3.6 clearances per match during the campaign.

The 24-year-old is still awaiting his first England cap, but with another international break arriving next month, he will be hoping that changes, having recently been linked with a move to Chelsea.

Will Wolves qualify for the Champions League this season?

The Latest: Kilman tipped for England call-up

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones backed Kilman to be part of Gareth Southgate’s setup, claiming that there are few, if any, better players in his position at the moment in England.

The journalist claimed: “Debatably, he’s England’s most in-form defender right now. He’s been so good for so long that he’s genuinely one of the best defenders in this country. Even though he hasn’t been in the England team, he will become part of that conversation.”

The Verdict: World Cup starter?

Kilman would be fully deserving of an England call-up, having been such a consistent performer all season long, also being hailed as ‘outstanding’ by Conor Coady.

On current form, it is hard to argue against him starting for England regularly, especially as Southgate often plays with three at the back, as do Wolves.

Kilman is unquestionably in better form than someone like Harry Maguire, while John Stones and Joe Gomez are struggling for playing time at Manchester City and Liverpool respectively.

With the 2022 World Cup looming, the Wolves colossus will surely be eyeing up a place in England’s squad – if his current form continues, that should be a given.
