Bournemouth fans have reacted excitedly on Twitter after hearing news of Callum Wilson’s maiden call-up to the England squad, and you can’t say the forward doesn’t deserve it.
The Cherries’ star man has started the season on fire, smashing in seven goals in just 11 starts whilst also setting up another four goals for his teammates in black and red.
All set for our final games of 2018! 💪

Wilson has only ever represented his country once, receiving a single cap for the England Under-21 side. Fans of Eddie Howe’s side have been crying out for their number 13 to receive the call from Gareth Southgate for some time now; what does seem certain is that it would’ve come a lot sooner were it not for the striker’s troublesome injuries.
Naturally, after hearing the news, the South Coast side’s supporters reacted in jubilation as they became aware that the wider footballing world would be able to witness the rapid forward’s talents.
Let’s take a look at some of the best tweets…
