CALLUM Wilson admits netting his first Cherries goal of the season "breeds confidence" ahead of his quest to add to his tally for England.

Leicester beat Eddie Howe's men 3-1 last Saturday, but the big positive from the contest was seeing striker Wilson score for the first time in eight competitive fixtures for club and country since a brace at Southampton in April.

The 27-year-old will now hope to get the chance to bag his second goal for the Three Lions in tomorrow's Euro 2020 qualifier against Bulgaria at Wembley (5pm).

Discussing his first goal of the campaign, Wilson told the Daily Echo: "It's always good to get off the mark. You always want to do it sooner rather than later.

"It's taken me until the fourth game to do it, but nevertheless I've got it now. It breeds confidence going into the international break having scored and I'll come back ready to hit the ground running and get some more."

Asked if the wait to find the net had played on his mind, Wilson added: "No, not really.

"I think as a striker you always believe you're going to score. It's just getting yourself in the right positions consistently and focusing on what gets you goals, which is all-round performance really.

"Until Leicester, at points my performance was good and it probably hasn't been up there as well in recent weeks so I guess it's nice to have the all-round thing."

England currently sit top of Group A with two wins from two and will take a huge step to qualification for next summers finals with wins over Bulgaria and Kosovo at St Mary's on Tuesday.

"It's exciting," said Wilson.

"Important games. The manager has obviously got a vision and a plan to qualify ultimately and we want to become the best in the world.

"The process continues and two more games to get some more points on the board."

Asked if he is looking to offer something fellow Three Lions strikers Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford don't, Wilson said: "I just go there and be Callum Wilson.

"I got called up for a reason. I bring obviously (something) different to the other strikers.

"There's no point me going and trying to change what I do there.

"I'll just do week in, week out what got me there in the first place."
