England pride for Joe Wildsmith

11 October 2014

Joe Wildsmith is relishing the experience of representing his country over the current international break.

The young Owls goalkeeper is on duty with the England Under-20s for the Four Nation Tournament in Holland, which the Three Lions began with a 1-0 win over Germany.

Wildsmith was an unused substitute for the match but the talented teenager is focusing on the bigger picture.

He said:  “It's a great experience for me to be training with effectively the best in England for my age group.

“It has given me an insight into the standard I am up against and what I have to do to compete for a place.

"I have learned a lot on how to conduct myself for my country as I would my club.

"We've got off to a great start but we have to concentrate on the next two matches and on winning the tournament."

The five-day tournament is contested between the Netherlands, England, Germany and Turkey.

England’s next game is against the hosts in Heerenveen on Saturday.
