Johnson aiming to use Sunderland as World Cup springboard

Sunderland winger Adam Johnson hopes his new-found form under Gus Poyet can help him win back a place among the England set-up in time for the World Cup this summer, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Johnson was on target as the Black Cats dispatched Newcastle 3-0 on Saturday, netting his seventh goal in as many games as Sunderland moved to 14th in the table with their fourth league win in 10 games and fourth league game without defeat.


“It is one of those things, people go through bad form and it has taken me time to find my feet here,” Johnson said. “I was always confident it would come. You don’t turn in to a bad player overnight.


“When the team is playing well, individuals come through. There has not been a major thing that I can put my finger on to say why.


“Two months ago I had given up on going to the World Cup, but now you don’t know.”


Johnson, a Middlesbrough youth product, moved to Sunderland from Manchester City in 2012. He has 11 England caps to his name thus far, making his debut in May 2010 with his last appearance coming in February 2012 against the Netherlands.
