Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell has said that he aspires to become an England great. The 21-year old has done really well with Leicester City so far. His performances for the club has resulted in a call-up to the national team. Chilwell played a key role in England’s 2-1 win over Croatia in the Nations League. This win helped England qualify for the Nations League Finals where they will take on Netherlands.
Speaking ahead of Leicester’s Premier League fixture against Tottenham Hotspur, Chilwell said that he wants to become one of the greatest left-backs in England’s national team history. He said, “That’s my long-term aim. Obviously, I’m not thinking too much about that because it’s a long old career and I’m taking every week as it comes. At the moment, if I can play well for Leicester for the next few months, then hopefully I can be involved in March and then be involved in the summer in the Nations League.
That’s my short-term aim. The long-term aim is obviously to be the first-choice left-back for 10 years to come and be one of the best left-backs that England has ever had. But that’s obviously in the back of my head.”
Chilwell will hope to put in a good performance in tonight’s crucial clash against Spurs.
