Wolves winger Matt Jarvis insists that England deserved to win Tuesday night’s friendly against Ghana, conceding that it is "always disappointing" when the opposition score in the final moments of a match.
The former Gillingham man was awarded his first cap for Fabio Capello’s side, replacing Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere in the 69th minute, and admits that he was delighted, despite Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan’s stoppage time equaliser which cancelled out Andy Carroll's first half opener.
“It is always disappointing to concede late goals and it dampens the mood,” Jarvis told FATV.
“I am not sure [that it was a fair result], we played extremely well in the first half and kept the ball, we still created a lot of chances in the second half.
“[I’m] absolutely delighted to get my debut but obviously disappointing with conceding the late goal.”
The 24-year-old has now set his sights on cementing his place with Capello’s squad through strong performances for Wolves, and admits he can’t wait to return to his club side to aid their battle against relegation.
“Of course [I want to keep my place in the England squad] I just want get back to Wolves and keep playing well and make sure we are in the Premier League,” said Jarvis.
“Just being here over the week has been great and I am delighted to make my debut.
“The pitch was in perfect condition- the ball was flying around It was great.”
