WILSON’S DELIGHT AT ENGLAND DEBUT GOAL

Bournemouth, football, England

BOURNEMOUTH’S Callum Wilson marked his debut for England by scoring their final goal in a 3-0 victory over the USA at Wembley on Thursday night.

Wilson became the first Bournemouth player in history to start for England and he was over the moon to mark the occasion with a goal.

“To make my debut here at Wembley and score is something I will remember forever,” said Wilson. “It is a day I will treasure for the rest of my life.

“It hasn’t sunk in at the moment. It was an opportunity for me and I just wanted to grab it with both hands.

“I missed a few and you are wondering if the goal is going to come, but thankfully it did at the end.”

Wilson’s strike came 13 minutes from time, just as Marcus Rashford was getting ready to replace him.

England were 2-0 up at half-time thanks to a spectacular curling effort from Jesse Lingard and a first international goal for Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Wayne Rooney came on for the last 33 minutes to win his 120th and final cap.
