Bowen ready to turn dreams into reality


Bowen aims to turn dreams into reality 

It will be long overdue of course if, as most expect, brilliant Jarrod Bowen makes a start in the game against Australia at Wembley tonight (Fri).

His appearance will cap a brilliant week and only yesterday which he used the England press conference to declare he wants to become a West Ham legend after signing that amazing seven year deal.

He has made an amazing start to the season which he has scored five goals in eight Premier League games.

And he has admitted that his disappointing 1922/23 season was as a result of  concentrating on trying to get himself selected for the World Cup squad. It’s Bowen’s honesty which is as admirable as his game!

This season he has simply kept his head down and concerned himself with showing his best form for the Hammers and my goodness how good has that been?

So hopefully Gareth Southgate will give him the nod for tonight’s friendly and ahead of the game Jarrod said: “I was disappointed to miss out on the World Cup but that’s what happened,

“As a little boy you dream of playing for your country”

And ahead of the game he said: “Playing at Wembley would be the ultimate. As a little boy you dream of playing for your country and you never think it is going to happen, but now I am here. I want to play at Wembley and hopefully I get the opportunity to do so.”

“I had a really good pre-season, had some good games, scored goals there and you can take confidence and momentum from each game that you play.

“For me, that’s all I’ve tried to be doing. Keep playing football with a smile on my face because you know that what makes me a good player, when I’m playing with a smile on my face.”
