The Urracas goalkeeper has an eye on the Tres Leones, although he also faces a battle to remain in the squad at club level
Newcastle goalkeeper Karl Darlow says it would be “foolish” not to admit that he is considering a possible England call-up, although he believes he still has to do more to win it over.
Darlow was the star of the show against Liverpool on Wednesday, as he kept a clean sheet in a goalless draw.
The goalkeeper made four saves Wednesday night and now has the second-highest number in the Premier League behind only West Brom’s Sam Johnstone.
Darlow has shone for Newcastle this season, having started 13 games after previously serving as a substitute for Martin Dubravka.
Having seized his chance after Dubravka’s injury, the 30-year-old is hopeful that he can make the move to the international level as he awaits the call-up from England.
“[It would be] It is silly of me not to admit that I am aware of it, I know what is happening and I hope I can continue to perform well and that could put me in conflict, “he said. Amazon Prime. “I just have to try to keep doing what I’m doing and I hope it happens.”
Dubravka was named in the call for the day for the first time since July, having been out of action with an ankle injury.
With the return of Dubravka, manager Steve Bruce will have to make a decision in goal, as the Slovak has been one of Newcastle’s best players in recent seasons.
“He had to wait patiently for his opportunity,” Bruce said of Darlow. “Certainly with the way he has trained Martin Dubravka is fit now, but we needed our second goalkeeper to step forward and right now the jersey is his because of his performance. We have had to draw on him too much at times. but there’s no denying he’s been great all season. “
Darlow said BBC: “I can only focus on what I’m doing. It was great to have [Dubravka] come back to be honest and work with him again. It’s good to be under pressure ”.
With the tie, Newcastle are currently 14th in the Premier League and will now look towards a clash with Leicester on Sunday.
