Newcastle keeper Pope happy Wilson part of England World Cup squad

Newcastle United goalkeeper Nick Pope is delighted to be joined by Callum Wilson in the England squad.

Pope believes England supporters will see all the strengths Newcastle fans have seen this season, when the tournament kick starts.

He told talkSPORT: “He's someone who leads the line really well, whether he plays on his own up front or in a two.

"He's a really intelligent player, strong, quick, really good in the box, whether that's one-touch finishes or beating a man and finishing.

"I think they're all strengths of his and strengths we've seen this season."
