CHERRIES goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale admits "my goal is to get into the Euro squad" with England for the 2020 tournament.

Gareth Southgate's men booked their spot at next summer's event with a 7-0 thrashing of Montenegro last week.

Everton's Jordan Pickford has been the regular man between the sticks for the Three Lions, while Nick Pope of Burnley started against Kosovo on Sunday.

Tom Heaton (Aston Villa) and Dean Henderson (Sheffield United) have also been included in the England squad this season, with Ramsdale settling for a spot in the under-21s.

Following his rapid rise from a loanee at AFC Wimbledon in League One to regular Premier League starter for Cherries in the space of a few months, Ramsdale was rewarded with a new contract in October.

He has nailed down his spot as first-choice in the under-21s set-up and is due to captain Aidy Boothroyd's side against Netherlands this evening (5.30pm).

Discussing the prospect of trying to force his way into Southgate's plans for Euro 2020, as reported in the MailOnline, the 21-year-old said: "I've thought about it for sure. My goal is to get into the Euro squad.

"Selfishly, I'd maybe have liked to have got into a camp in the first three (this season)."

First though, Ramsdale is pleased to be donning the armband in place of Tom Davies for his country in tonight's friendly in Doetinchem.

He said: "'I share a room with Tom and to see him being captain, my mate, I can see how much pride it brings to him.

"I help him put on the armband when he's playing, so maybe he can do it for me. I'm smiling and have been all day."

Asked last month whether he saw Ramsdale as a future England goalkeeper, Cherries boss Eddie Howe said: “I think if you just look at his record, he’s played for the youth teams.

“He’s playing for the under-21s now, so he would feel ultimately that’s an aim, I’m sure a goal for him in the future to try to attain.

“But he’s got a long way to go to get there. The only thing he can do is play well for us on a consistent basis and see if that’s enough.”
