BOSS Eddie Howe believes England call-ups for Callum Wilson and Lewis Cook show that all Cherries players are being monitored by international teams.

Striker Wilson became the first Cherries star to net for the Three Lions when he converted on his debut against the United States at Wembley on Thursday.

He was an unused substitute for the dramatic 2-1 win over Croatia in the UEFA Nations League today.

Midfielder Cook was the first player from the Dorset club to represent the senior England side, coming on as a substitute against Italy in March.

Cherries aces on senior international duty during the current window include Nathan Ake, David Brooks and Ryan Fraser. Cook is away with the England under-21 squad, which Jack Simpson has been drafted into.

Discussing the meaning of Wilson’s England call, Howe told the Daily Echo: “It lets everyone know they are being watched and that their form in the Premier League is being evaluated by the people from their countries – whether that’s England or other countries.

“The form of the team this season has been strong. That has certainly helped everyone’s cause and will continue to do so as long as we can be successful.

“Hopefully, everyone will take inspiration from Callum’s call.”
