Wilson closing in on England

Wilson closing in on England

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe believes an England call-up for Callum Wilson is not too far away for the striker.

Wilson's first-half strike was cancelled out by Troy Deeney at Watford but he is getting back to his best after a year out with injury which brought his career to a shuddering halt.

Howe believes Wilson was close to England selection at the start of last season before a serious knee injury.

Asked whether Wilson should be included in the future, Howe said: "I think he has the ability to get there.

"From my perspective at the moment it's still making sure he's okay fitness-wise and injury-wise and continues his good form, because he's building some momentum now."
