Bournemouth

Howe sees confidence in Wilson

15th March 2019, 12:46 by Daniel McCarthy

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe says Callum Wilson’s England call up has given him extra confidence in his game.

Gareth Southgate named his Three Lions squad on Wednesday for the upcoming games against Czech Republic and Montenegro in the European Championship qualifiers, with Wilson named despite various injury problems so far this season.

He debuted for his country back in November in a friendly against the USA and scored in the 77th minute to become the first Cherries player to ever score a goal for England.

The 27-year-old has scored 11 times for Bournemouth this season and Howe says playing for his country will only assist Wilson’s form at club level and raise his confidence.

"It can only be a good thing for your psychological state and for how you feel about yourself," the Bournemouth boss said.

"It's a huge honour, a big boost and I think it makes you come into training feeling ten-foot tall and I hope it has for Callum. I've seen in him with real confidence, a spring in his step."

Wilson had missed Bournemouth’s previous six matches due to a knee problem, but Howe says he is ready to play over the upcoming international break.

"He did incredibly well physically in the match. He's trained well this week so he's in a good place," Howe added.
