Everton winger Anthony Gordon not dropping World Cup hopes

Everton winger Anthony Gordon isn't giving up on making England's World Cup squad.

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."
