10 Oct Wilson: I do not wish to kick Kane outside but I am prepared to take my chance with England
The Bournemouth striker is determined he could have an effect for the 3 Lions having always thought he would make it to the federal team
Callum Wilson is determined to stake his claim since England’s first-choice ahead before a Euro 2020 qualifier against Czech Republic.
The 27-year old, however, faces the challenging task of dislodging Tottenham celebrity Harry Kane up leading to Gareth Southgate’s side.
While not eager to kick Kane from the negative, Wilson is prepared to create his mark in whatever way he could.
“Harry is a fantastic player, I am not saying that I wish to kick him from this team but with accidents and things that occur on the way, you need to be prepared to grasp the chance — if it’s 1 moment, 20 moments or in the opening point,” Wilson stated.
“It is not only thinking:’Harry will play’
“I love to believe I could make a direct impact. In Cup games, I have a tendency to come on for Bournemouth as a sub and you also get a number of goals out of that. Defences get somewhat tired, you operate in supporting and that is the very last thing they would like to be up against. It has its advantages and disadvantages.
“No professional footballer will state that they would like to be on the chair. I maintain working hard at heart level to attempt to finally get a starting location ”
Although prepared to present new competition for Kane’s place in the England team, Wilson has been taking pointers out of the Spurs striker.
“You observe how clinical Harry is currently in practice, at the concluding sessions and there’s absolutely not any laughing and joking, only pure immersion,” he explained.
“Occasionally in club football — and I have been guilty of this myself — you will do a completing session but with a little bit of banter with the lads; with contest, laughing and laughing in people missing but at a match, that isn’t what occurs.
“You must get focused. Harry is in that frame of mind and I’ve taken that into my training in Bournemouth. When I am working on my ending there’s not any need to be laughing and laughing. You can possess banter from the changing room.”
Wilson’s route to the federal team was blighted by injuries but the guy himself was always convinced he had breakthrough finally.
When he had been enjoying non-League football, Wilson was determined an England call-up would one day be on the cards.

“When I was on loan in Kettering and Tamworth, I stated I’ll play for England one day,” he explained.
“Everybody calls me self-confident. If you do not think you can get someplace you won’t ever get there and it was always the intention to play to the federal team and also to play in the Premier League.
“Once I got there, I believed that I was there earlier because in my mind I was there.”
