It has been a great season so far for James Tarkowski but his Burnley coach Sean Dyche believes that it doesn’t have to be all and the youngster can make it to the World Cup in Russia.

The Burnley defender was nominated for the first time in his life to the national team and he made his debut under Gareth Southgate – but Dyche believes that he can possibly do even better.

The Burnley head coach spoke about his side’s talented player as he said, according to Four four two:

“There’s more to come from him, I believe, both for us and England possibly. But I think he’s a very good player.”

“I was really pleased. I don’t think it’s easy anyway to play for England. I don’t think it’s easy to play for England on your debut at home. I don’t think it’s easy to play in a back three and I don’t think it’s easy to play on the left of a three.”

“When you add all of that in, with the new group, I thought he was very good. Nice and calm, played steady, organised when he needed to be. He did the basics very well and just kept his simplicity.”

“I know how hard it is to pick a team. I think he’s got a chance [of going to the World Cup], let’s wait and see.”
