Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez has set his sights on an England breakthrough.

Rodriguez, 23, has seen ex-Saints starlets Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain play on the international stage for England, and Gareth Bale make the jump with Wales.

He said: “It is every player’s dream to play for their country. That is what you want. That is the ultimate aim. I will keep my head down and try to score as many goals as possible. If that comes, that comes.

“First I have to prove myself in the Premier League and I want to show everyone I can perform at this level.

“I am still learning but it is a great place to be. Injured

“I missed out when Burnley were in the Premier League because I was injured, but this is something I have always wanted to do.”
