West Ham midfielder Jesse Lingard: England recall has been target

West Ham midfielder Jesse Lingard is delighted with his England recall.

Lingard made only three appearances in the first half of this season, all in the cups, before a loan switch from Manchester United.

A spot in this summer's Euros squad seemed far-fetched eight weeks ago but it is now a real possibility.

And Lingard hinted it's something he has been thinking about for a while.

He said: "It's there in my mind.

"I have my own targets that I have wrote down before I came to West Ham and as long as I can hit them, we'll see which doors open for me.

"For now I'm concentrating on winning games for West Ham and playing regular football and getting back smiling and back to the old Jesse again."
