Everton striker Hope targets big U17 World Cup

Everton striker Hallam Hope is feeling in good form as he travels to Mexico with the England U17 squad for the World Cup.

The young Lions reached the semi-final stage in Serbia, which guaranteed them a place in the World Cup. And after playing such a key role in their European success, Hope's confidence is understandably high.

"Qualification for the World Cup was the minimum requirement which the coach was looking for and it was one of my main targets too because I really want to play in it," Hope told evertonfc.com.

"It was good for me to score some goals. One of the goals I scored against Serbia was the best I've ever scored for England and that really boosts my confidence. But it's not about me, it's about the team - and those goals helped the team."
