LEWIS Cook vowed to graft his way back into the England senior set-up by impressing in the Premier League for Cherries.

The 21-year-old was on standby for Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad in Russia throughout the summer and made his first Three Lions appearance in a 1-1 draw with Italy in March.

He has this time round been selected in Aidy Boothroyd’s under-21 squad and is set to be part of the side to face Andorra in a European qualifier at Chesterfield tomorrow (7.45pm).

Asked about his international ambitions, Cook told the Daily Echo: “It was a massive achievement for me to be on standby for such a massive tournament. I have to use that and take it into the season to try to push.

“Being there before, I have just got to try to keep working hard and make sure the form for my club is up there.

“It’s everyone’s dream and goal to be in the England first team but, if it’s the under-21s, then fine. We have a big campaign coming up.”

Cook has started Cherries’ past two top-flight fixtures, helping Eddie Howe’s men to victories over Crystal Palace and Watford.
