Aaron Ramsdale has made a fine start to life at Arsenal and that has also helped him cement a place in the England national team squad.
The former Sheffield United goalkeeper was called up to the England squad for Euro 2020, but he didn’t make an appearance in the competition, with Jordan Pickford firmly England’s first choice at the moment.
However, the Arsenal man is targeting that position by the next World Cup in 2022.
The former Bournemouth goalkeeper spoke about his experience in the national team at Euro 2020 recently and said he enjoyed his time in the camp.
He had been planning to go on a holiday with his partner at the end of last season, but they eventually called him up to join the Three Lions at the Euros.
He missed having that personal time with his missus, however, he described the England camp for Euro 2020 as a big lads’ holiday and looks forward to another one.
England’s next international competition will be the World Cup in Qatar next year and he says he hopes to join the group as a starter.
He told the AFC Wimbledon website: ‘Me and the Mrs were going to go on holiday and go and chill. The next thing you know, I’m in the squad, I’m fully part of it and it was some of the best weeks of my life!’
‘I keep saying it was a great lad’s holiday,’ he added.
‘That’s just the team spirit we had, and we were just a few kicks away from achieving something great.
‘It’s just added momentum and hunger to do well in the World Cup and hopefully, I can be a part of that again and hopefully that’ll be to do with a starting role.’
