Bournemouth star considered for England role ahead of injury blow

Bournemouth star Callum Wilson was being considered by England boss Roy Hodgson ahead of his six month injury blow, according to reports from the Mirror.

The 23-year-old suffered a ligament tear in his knee during the match against Stoke City two weekends ago and is expected to be out for at least half a year.

It was believed that the Three Lions boss has already sent scouts to monitor the situation of the forward after a great start to current campaign.

Hodgson admitted that Wilson was one of the players being considered for a national team role after impressing with six goals so far this season from a total of eight appearances in all competitions.

“Callum was on our radar. He has already played for the Under-21s so we know about him,” he said.

“He came under consideration after his excellent start to the season and we are very disappointed for him.

“I can’t honestly say if he would be in the squad as I’m happy with the players that I’ve got.”

The newly promoted side are currently sitting in 15th place, level on points with Chelsea, but have struggled with injury since the start of the season.

Wilson’s knock is another concern for manager Eddie Howe given that he has also lost summer signings Max Gradel and Tyrone Mings through injury.
