Anthony Gordon ‘100 per cent focused’ on gatecrashing England’s World Cup party as £60m Everton man eyes shock call-up

, Anthony Gordon ‘100 per cent focused’ on gatecrashing England’s World Cup party as £60m Everton man eyes shock call-up

ANTHONY GORDON claims he can gatecrash boss Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad.

The £60million-rated Everton forward, 21, was one of the most sought-after players this summer, with Chelsea having two bids rejected for him.

Anthony Gordon has shone for England’s Under-21s

But the Everton ace is determined to play his way into Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad

Now Gordon has set his sights on being on the plane to Qatar — even if he admits himself it is a long shot.

The England Under-21 star said: “I’m one hundred per cent focused on making the World Cup squad.

“If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen. It’s out of my control — but I’ll definitely give it my best try.

“To get there, I will need to score a lot of goals in the next couple of games. I’m ready for that challenge. I’m hopeful.

“If I didn’t have the ambition to play for England at the World Cup, then I would be a bit stupid.

“But I understand the squad is so good at the minute, that it’s going to be really tough to get in.”

Gordon helped England’s Under-21s to an impressive 3-1 win over Germany at Bramall Lane on Tuesday night, teeing up Conor Gallagher’s crucial goal just after half-time.

Once again his pace, trickery and bravery when taking on defenders caught the eye.


Interestingly, Gordon said that — even if he was a shock inclusion to go to Qatar this winter with the seniors — then he would also still like to be involved in the Under-21 Euros next summer in Romania and Georgia.

He explained: “If I got the opportunity to do both, I’d love that.

“Especially because of the work I’ve done here.

“I’ve played most of the qualifiers with the Under-21s — so I’d like to see it out now.”
