Leicester City attacker Demarai Gray is keen to make the next step in his international career and break into the England squad. The 22-year-old has been regarded as one of the promising young prospects in the country but he has not managed to secure a senior call-up despite representing the Under-21s on a regular basis.
Speaking to reporters, Gray highlighted that he has now matured into a better footballer and he would rather represent the nation than watch them from the pub, he said: “I think it's time I take the next step into my game. I'm 22 now and I'm maturing as a player and as a person. I think because I've been around first-team football since I was 17, I know the ins and outs of what goes on, what's to be expected and the highs and lows. I don't want to be watching England from the pub, I want to be at the next Euros, at the next World Cup. I think that's my next target and to do that, I've got to keep working on my game here at Leicester and performing.”
