Dawson hoping for England recall

first_imgTottenham captain Michael Dawson hopes his recent good form will earn him a “dream” recall to the England squad. Andre Villas-Boas made Dawson available for transfer last summer, but he chose to rebuff QPR’s overtures and stayed at Tottenham, where he has since broken back into the first team. Reports on Wednesday morning suggested Dawson could be included in the Three Lions squad for this month’s World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro. The 29-year-old has not played for England for almost two years and admits he would love to earn a recall. “It would be a dream (to be recalled),” the centre-back told TalkSPORT. He added: “I got asked this question when I first got back in to the Spurs team. Then, I just had to concentrate on staying in the Tottenham team. “Now I’m playing regularly for Tottenham…Fingers crossed. It would be nice to get that England call-up.” Villas-Boas recently admitted he made a mistake by letting Dawson speak to QPR, and the player himself is grateful to the Portuguese for giving him a second chance at Spurs. “The gaffer has been very honest with me from day one,” the former Nottingham Forest man said. “I spoke to him after pre-season and he told me there might not be as many opportunities as I would have liked. It was my decision to stay and fight for my position. “I was out there every day training hard and thankfully the manager has seen that and he has put me back in. “As a player you can only ask for honesty. The manager has been great. I’m glad to be back playing.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
