Ings hopeful of future England call-up

The Burnley striker has taken inspiration from Saido Berahino's recent promotion to the senior side as he prepares to represent the Under-21 outfit

Burnley striker Danny Ings is hopeful he can find form in the Premier League and make a push for a place in the England squad.

Ings has just one goal to his name for the club this season, netting in the 3-1 home defeat to Everton late last month, but has been included in the England Under-21 squad for Thursday's friendly with Portugal.

Saido Berahino has been called into the senior set-up to face Slovenia and Scotland following his strong recent form for West Brom, which has seen him score five goals in the last six Premier League games.

"If you're scoring goals for your club in the Premier League, doors open," he told The Lancashire Telegraph.

"It's happened to him [Berahino] and fair play to the lad, he's a fantastic striker and a great finisher. Hopefully I'll be able to follow in his footsteps so maybe in the future, you never know."
