Jack Cork dreaming of World Cup call

Burnley midfielder Jack Cork admits he is dreaming of playing for England at the World Cup this summer.

Cork made his England debut in November as a late substitute in the goalless draw against Germany.

The 28-year-old has excelled for Burnley this season after making the £10million move from Premier League rivals Swansea City, and has played every single minute of top flight football for the Clarets so far this season.

While the former Chelsea youth player was only called up to the Three Lions squad due to injuries elsewhere, Cork in hoping his form for Burnley, who are seventh in the Premier League, can enable him to get a call up for Russia 2018.

"There's a lot of midfielders coming into form at the minute and I've not heard anything, but then the last time I found out the morning of the call-up," Cork told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"I'll just wait and see. I was just happy to be called up last time."

Other Burnley players have also been mentioned as potential England players recently, with goalkeeper Nick Pope, who has deputised seamlessly for Tom Heaton being considered, as well as centre-back pair James Tarkowski and Ben Mee.
