Leicester defender Ben Chilwell hopes he can force his way into the England side on a regular basis after making his debut.

The 21-year-old featured as a substitute during the final 10 minutes of the Three Lions’ 1-0 win over Switzerland on Tuesday at Leicester’s King Power Stadium.

The defender has featured at youth level for England and now hopes he can continue to impress for the Foxes in order to stay in the thoughts of manager Gareth Southgate.

“Getting called up happened very quickly, hopefully it is just the start for me,” Chilwell told the Leicester Mercury.

“If I can keep playing well for Leicester, then hopefully many more opportunities will come for me to play for England.”

He added: “Getting called up to this camp, my aim was just to take it as it comes. A massive achievement for me coming on and for me now it is about playing for Leicester again.

“Hopefully, if I keep playing well and then if the opportunity comes up again, I will be ready.”

Leicester head to Bournemouth on Saturday and will be looking to build on a strong start to the campaign as they currently sit in eighth spot in the Premier League, with six points from a possible 12.

The Foxes are 3.00 to take maximum points this weekend and 15.00 to win 2-0. A win for Bournemouth is available at 2.40 and the draw is 3.40.
