CALLUM Wilson revealed how training alongside England skipper Harry Kane had helped him enhance his game at Cherries.

The Coventry-born frontman has been working with the Spurs star in Gareth Southgate’s national squad, since being called up for the Three Lions last season.

On his only appearance for England’s under-21s against France in 2014, the Cherries hitman also replaced Kane as a second-half substitute – playing under boss Southgate.

And the two-time Premier League golden boot winner’s focus is something Wilson has picked up on.

Speaking about Kane in an interview with the Telegraph, the Cherries ace said: “He’s the captain, he plays well for his club week in, week out, so he’s doing something right.

“In training you watch how clinical he is, in the finishing sessions, training with him, doing those sessions. There is no laughing and joking, just pure concentration.

“Sometimes in club football, you’ll be doing a finishing session but having a bit of banter with the lads, a competition, laughing and joking, people missing, but in a game that is not what happens, you have to be focused.

“Harry is in that frame of mind and I have taken that into my own training back at Bournemouth.

“When I’m working on my finishing, there is no need to be laughing and joking. It is all well and good having banter but you can have that in the changing room.

“When you are actually doing a finishing session, put in 100 per cent concentration, not 80 per cent into the finishing and 20 per cent having a laugh with the lads. Do your finishing and then go in and have a laugh with the lads.”

Wilson has scored once in three games for England – having netted on his debut in a friendly against the United States in November.

That goal was a far cry from the striker’s non-league spells on loan while at former club Coventry – but he always believed he would represent his country.

“I was playing on loan at Kettering and Tamworth, and I said I will play for England one day,” he added.

“Everyone calls me self-confident. If you don’t believe you can get somewhere you will never get there, that was always the aim to play for the national team and to play in the Premier League.

“When I got there I felt I had been there before because in my head I had been there. I never actually told any of the players, it’s a bit disrespectful when a lot of those players were a bit older and never got that opportunity.

“They would think, ‘young, little whippersnapper coming in, saying he’s going to play for England, get out of here’.

“For me, I basically told family, friends, they all said, ‘yes, go for it’. Some games you would be playing terrible and I’d think, ‘no it’s never going to happen’, but you have to keep that belief there and here I am.”

Wilson could feature when England tomorrow visit Czech Republic in a Euro 2020 qualifier (7.45pm).
