Jarrod Bowen says form of his life earned England recall

West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen said he is in the form of his life as he prepares to fulfil a childhood dream of playing for England at Wembley.

The 26-year-old’s form for his club earned a new seven-year contract on Sunday and a recall to Gareth Southgate’s squad at international levelBowen scored the winner as the Hammers won the Europa Conference League against Fiorentina in June and has netted five times in nine appearances this season.

“The way I started this season I’m probably playing the best football that I’ve played in my career. I’ve had those experiences of Europe. It’s a bit different to when I came (before). I’m a dad now, so I’m in a different kind of place, you just feel a bit more mature. I feel in a really good place and to be back here, I’m really grateful for it,” said Bowen.

Bowen’s four England appearances to date came during the worst international camp of Southgate’s largely successful reign. He featured in four winless Nations League matches in June 2022, including defeats home and away against Hungary. Bowen was also called up in September last year but did not play and missed out on the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Southgate has indicated he will play in Friday’s friendly against Australiaallowing him to fulfil his ambition of representing his country at Wembley. “That would be the ultimate,” he added. “I have got four caps and I am massively grateful for them but that Wembley one (is missing).

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.”  After facing Australia, the Three Lions host Italy at Wembley on October 17 looking to move one step closer to qualification for Euro 2024. England are well on course to make it to Germany next year after taking 13 points from a possible 15 so far in qualifying.
