In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Steve Bull, who is a Wolverhampton Wanderers Hall of Famer, claims it was fantastic to see Ollie Watkins score for England but admits he must keep his feet on the floor.
Watkins scored his debut for England when he came on as a substitute against San Marino, which he followed up with a goal for Villa against Fulham to secure all three points on Sunday.
The former Brentford striker has been Villa’s talisman in front of goal this season having scored 13 goals, which is six more than Jack Grealish who is their second top scorer.
Speaking on why it was great to see Watkins score despite him being a Villa player and what he must do now, Bull told FFC:
“I think it’s absolutely superb for him. The Wolves fans will say ‘why are you talking about a Villa player’ but you talk about a player if he’s good.
“When you saw him score, his face looked like he was 16 or 17 and he could have cried because he couldn’t believe he had scored.
“That will put him in good stead now as long as it doesn’t go to his head and he keeps his feet firmly on the floor, because he’ll get some more chances.”
Aston Villa put their faith in Ollie Watkins this season when they splashed out and spent £28 million on a striker who had never played higher than the Championship before.
If Watkins can maintain his form for Villa, he could find himself in Gareth Southgate’s squad for the Euros this summer as he is currently the sixth-favourite striker to make the squad, according to Sky Bet.
