Wolves winger Matt Jarvis admits it is a 'dream' to have been called up to the England squad.

The 24-year-old midfielder has been named in Fabio Capello's party for the Euro 2012 clash with Wales on Saturday and the friendly tie with Ghana at Wembley.

Jarvis has been in fine form for the Molineux outfit this season and scored the winner as his side beat Aston Villa 1-0 at the weekend.

He becomes the first Wolves player in nearly 20 years to earn a Three Lions call since Steve Bull appeared on the international stage in 1991.

Jarvis is over the moon to have been selected by Capello and has vowed to make an impact and earn some time on the pitch.

"It was great to get the call tonight [Sunday] confirming I am in the squad," he told Wolves' official website.


"I'm delighted as you would expect and to be honest it's difficult to put into words at the moment.

"I'd been named on standby for a few of the games this season so it's great that this time I've finally made it into the squad.

"Like every play it's been a dream of mine to try and play for England since starting off in the game and getting into the squad takes me one step closer.

"I'll enjoy the news tonight and am really pleased but from there it will be a case of joining up tomorrow and trying to impress and do everything I can to get some time on the pitch."

Jarvis scored a fine goal for Wolves at Villa Park on Saturday to ease Mick McCarthy's relegation fears at the bottom of the Premier League.

He added: "It just rounds off a great weekend for me having scored the winner against Aston Villa and I'm really looking forward to joining up with the squad."

Well done Jarvo, nothing other than deserved and perhaps should have been in the squad ahead of Aaron Lennon, SWP and co. Nothing short of awesome for us this season and justified for his and our run of form over the last 5 or 6 games. Fabio - pick him from the start!

I'd like to second George Harper's comment, it has been a long time coming! An old fashioned winger with loads of pace who simply hits the byline and gets his crosses in! something the left side of England has been missing for a while now! Congratulations Jarvo!

Great news! Nice to see that players playing for one of the so called little clubs getting the credit they deserve! Alot of the player in the England squad don't know what battling for a result is all about! Hope he gets some minutes on the pitch! Also nice to see Capello starting to understand we need natural width on the flanks, not just playing Gerrad there just to squeeze everyone in!

I'd just like to say well done to Matt, not only on a personnal level but also to represent the Wolves on the international stage. Good luck for the Wales game, wonder what the odds would be for a debut goal hmm................................
