After joining Arsenal in the summer, Aaron Ramsdale has set his eyes on becoming England’s No.1 at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale strongly desires to snatch the England No.1 shirt for the 2022 World Cup following his entry into the national squad.

Due to Dean Henderson’s injury during the Euro 2020, Ramsdale had been called up for a late duty by Gareth Southgate. Furthermore, the 23-year-old received a green signal for the World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Hungary earlier in October.

Actually, Ramsdale has not yet bagged a senior cap with England, though he has stunned the critics with some quality performances for the Gunners lately. Keeping this in mind, the Arsenal No.1 believes that he will be able to step into his national squad for the major tournament in Qatar.

Ramsdale spoke about his time during the summer on AFC Wimbledon’s official website. He said: “Me and the Mrs were going to go on holiday and go and chill. The next thing you know, I’m in the squad, I’m fully part of it and it was some of the best weeks of my life!”

“I keep saying it was a great lad’s holiday,” he added. “That’s just the team spirit we had, and we were just a few kicks away from achieving something great.

“It’s just added momentum and hunger to do well in the World Cup and hopefully I can be a part of that again and hopefully that’ll be to do with a starting role.”
