Vote: Should Jarrod Bowen get an England call up?

There’s one big question on the lips of English football fans at the moment: Should West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen get an England call up?

The winger has been in sensational form for the Hammers this season, scoring eight goals and assisting a further 10 in all competitions.

His brace on Wednesday night in West Ham’s 2-0 victory over Norwich City received particularly high praise as he continued to impress in what has been a season of huge improvement for the 25-year-old.

His 18 goal involvements in 30 appearances in all competitions is already four more than the 14 in 30 first-team outings he achieved last season.

The season before, having signed from Hull City in the January transfer window of 2020, Bowen registered five goal involvements in 13 Premier League appearances.

So Bowen’s improvement in the 2021/2022 season is clear for all to see, leading to him being spoken about as a potential inclusion in Gareth Southgate’s next England squad.

The Three Lions’ next fixtures in June as they take on Hungary, Germany and Italy in the Nations League, so Bowen has a fairly long wait to see if he has done enough in Southgate’s eyes to warrant a call-up.

But, with the likes of Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Phil Foden either out of form or not playing often enough for their respective clubs, there is currently a very clear route into the national squad for Bowen to aim for.

As things stand, Bowen has scored and assisted more goals than any other Englishman in the Premier League this season so it would be hard for Southgate to ignore his outstanding exploits for the Hammers, and no one would begrudge the winger the chance to show what he can do on the international stage.

But what do you think? Should Jarrod Bowen be in Southgate’s next England squad? Have your say in the poll below…
