Former Burnley FC ace Jay Rodriguez hopes to be part of Roy Hodgson’s World Cup squad, despite what the Southampton forward knows was a disappointing England debut.

The 24-year-old former Claret who now plays for Southampton, was last month given a surprise call-up along with club-mate Adam Lallana for the international friendly double-header at Wembley.

The uncapped pair both started in England’s 2-0 defeat at the hands of Chile, with Lallana impressing enough to also begin the disappointing 1-0 home loss to Germany days later.
