Next Toon Player To Play For England?
Dan Gosling is pleased to be back after a "doom and gloom year" ... and he is even thinking of a full England cap. The 21-year-old has now returned to action and played for the England Under-21s as they beat Israel 4-1 on Monday night. Dan Gosling: "It was a doom and gloom year with the knee injury. "My friends and family kept me going and I've had a few fallings out with the physios. "You have to get your head round it and as soon I did that it was a lot of hard work in the gym. "Now I've made it back and hopefully fingers crossed I can keep injury free and get as many games as I can." "The victory at Barnsley was great ... and it was very nice to get a start and obviously the win as well capped off a good end to the week. "We were disappointed with the first half. "At half-time we all came in and I think the tempo was too slow so the second half we've come out of the blocks; passed the ball quickly and they couldn't live with us. "Mr Capello watches us closely. "You see all the lads pushing on and you think you want to be there as well. "Hopefully if you're in good form for your club then who knows?"
