Sunderland winger Adam Johnson could be given a chance to further stake a claim for a spot in England’s World Cup squad during the Three Lions’ upcoming friendly with Denmark, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The wide-man has been in fantastic form of late, taking his goal tally to nine this season with some important efforts in the Black Cats’ push for survival.

His impressive displays have caught the eye of Roy Hodgson, who is ready to gamble on the wide options for his next fixture.

The England coach faces a particularly difficult decision when in comes to choosing wingers for the World Cup, with Theo Walcott set to miss the competition and Andros Townsend having suffered an alarming dip in form since making a massive impact earlier in the season.

Johnson’s sudden surge looks to have come at just the right time as far as Hodgson is concerned, and the 26-year-old could be given another opportunity to impress at international level next month.

The Sunderland star first broke into England’s senior side under Fabio Capello, but has been unable to add to his 11 caps in recent years after his form slipped.
