West Ham United star Jarrod Bowen received a round of applause in England training after a very special moment.
Gareth Southgate finally handed West Ham star Bowen his first England call-up for the Nations League matches.
Bowen enjoyed a sensational season with West Ham, scoring 18 goals and laying on 13 assists.
The attacker made his England debut in the 1-0 defeat to Hungary at the weekend and was widely praised for his performance.
Fans of West Ham and other clubs had been highly critical of Southgate for taking so long to give Bowen his first England call-up despite his impressive form ever since joining West Ham.
Hammers News reported last week how Bowen has been shining in training, linking up with Spurs star Harry Kane to devastating effect.
It has been a week to remember for West Ham’s star attacker, though, and one to make all Hammers proud as Bowen took his place in the Three Lions team alongside Declan Rice.
And today saw West Ham star Bowen get a round of applause in England training after a very special moment.
England play bitter rivals Germany on Tuesday night with Bowen expected to start again.
Ahead of the big clash, Bowen was presented with an England legacy cap commemorating his debut.
Bowen is the latest West Ham star to continue the club’s proud tradition of producing players for the England national team.
And his place in history is recognised on the cap which is emblazoned with a number signifying his place in the chronology of England internationals.
The West Ham star’s cap featured the number 1,271. And Southgate gave a nice speech as he presented Bowen – and fellow England debutant James Justin – with the cap.
Bowen was greeted with a round of applause by the rest of the squad who had gathered to watch the presentation, including his West Ham teammate Rice.
