Palace defender targets Three Lions call
Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka hopes to make the step up to the England senior side after featuring for the Under-21s.
Wan-Bissaka is in contention to be named in England manager Gareth Southgate's squad for this month's Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Montenegro, with the Three Lions boss set to name his squad on Wednesday.
The 21-year-old right-back is also eligible for DR Congo, having represented them at Under-20 level, but the Palace star says one of his highlights this season was turning out for the Under-21s and he now has his sights set on a senior debut.
"It is quite tough [to pick a highlight] to be honest," Wan-Bissaka said, as reported by the Evening Standard. "The England [U21] call-up, I would say that one. I didn't expect that.
"I was already in the Under-20s, so I just thought I would be playing there. But, obviously, that [the U21s] was the target, so now I have reached that goal, the next is to be in the seniors. Hopefully, that comes. That is the next target."
