Watkins aiming to stake claim for permanent England role after maiden call-up

The Villa star acknowledges that it will be tough to unseat first-choice forward Harry Kane but he is delighted to be part of the national team

New England call-up Ollie Watkins wants to stake a regular claim to a place in the Three Lions squad as he enjoys his first taste of international football.

The Aston Villa striker, 25, was selected by Gareth Southgate for England’s opening World Cup qualifiers in March.

It is a reward for the fine season Watkins has had in the Premier League as he continues to impress in attack for the Birmingham side.
