Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher was left out of the latest England squad for international games.
Gallagher has revealed that England head coach Gareth Southgate has told him that he needs to play regular football in order to make the Three Lions squad for the World Cup.
Gallagher said: “It would be amazing to make that squad.
“Obviously you can say it was difficult that I wasn’t part of the squad in this camp.
“But I took it on the chin. Gareth spoke to me and said what I need to do to give myself the best chance to get in the squad.
“It was the things that you would expect. Just, regular football, performing well consistently, those are the most important things.
“I’m very happy and thankful that he said that. I’m going to work as hard as I can and try to impress him to give myself the biggest chance.”
Conor Gallagher was called up to the England U21 squad, and the young midfielder has revealed he’s pleased
added: “It’s always an honour to play for England, whether that’s in the seniors or for the Under-21s.
“The best thing for me is to show good attitude and to try to help the team as much as I can, to impress Gareth and Lee Carsley as well.
“Thankfully I helped the team to a good win.
“Of course (having a good attitude) makes a difference and it looks good on paper. But I genuinely want to do well for the Under-21s and do well for Lee Carsley and help the Under-21 team as much as I can.
“With England, I just want to try to impress the managers when I can in training and in games. I’ll always work my hardest to do so.”
