Jack Rodwell is delighted to have been given the chance to play for his country.
The Everton man was given time against Spain and Sweden to stake a claim for a place in the squad.
“It was a dream come true to step on the pitch against Spain [last Saturday]. It was my full debut. If I can stay in and around the squad I’m happy. We’ve had a good bond for a couple of years [the Under-21 players]. All of the lads have welcomed me in the seniors. I know a few of the lads from Everton. As soon as I stepped through the door I have felt really comfortable.”
