After Burnley striker Danny Ings was named man of the match in the Clarets’ 2-2 draw at home to West Bromwich Albion, manager Sean Dyche believes the 22-year-old will be called up for England in the coming internationals, reports BBC Sport.
Ings set up Burnley’s first goal for Ashley Barnes to score, before getting on the scoresheet himself with a good header. His overall performance was impressive too, earning him the man-of-the-match award for his troubles.
There were doubts whether he could step up to the level of the Premier League after impressing during Burnley’s promotion-winning campaign in the Championship, but 12 goals scored and created in 21 games certainly proves he’s coped well. The likes of Liverpool have been linked with a summer move.
And as a result, manager Sean Dyche believes his performance against West Brom, let alone over the course of the Premier League season, should earn Ings a place in the England national team for the coming games.
“He’s a fine talent, there’s no two ways about it. I can see why there are certain people in the media asking about England call-ups. He’s growing into the league, he’s understanding it better. He’s a tremendous talent and we’re delighted we stuck to our word and he’s still a Burnley player,” said the Clarets boss.
