Eddie Howe update on Newcastle United injury / fitness for Chelsea – Callum Wilson a doubt

An interesting week for Callum Wilson.

Last Sunday half-time during the win over Southampton, then more positive, named in England’s World Cup squad on Thursday.

After last Sunday’s win, Eddie Howe reassured Newcastle (and England…) fans that it wasn’t an injury that ruled the striker out of that Saints game, but rather an illness that Callum Wilson was battling in the run-up to bothered to the last. weekend game.

Callum Wilson was then a notable absentee on Wednesday night, as were Trippier, Almiron, Botman, Schar and others in the match squad and indeed come as subs, but Wilson not in the match squad at all.

On Friday morning, Eddie Howe revealed that Callum Wilson had been training this week ahead of the Chelsea game, BUT training away from the main squad.

Eddie Howe explains the Callum Wilson situation to journalists with Chelsea the visitors tomorrow, the last game before the World Cup break:

“We will wait and see, Callum Wilson has been training separately from the group.

“He had the disease and he was (kept) away from the group.

“He trained well, but we will make a decision before tomorrow.”

Eddie Howe also reacted to the news that Callum Wilson has been selected by Gareth Southgate for the Qatar World Cup alongside Nick Pope and Kieran Trippier:

“I think it’s great for us (as a club).

“At Newcastle United we are really proud of our international players.

“We’re trying to provide a place where players can excel, do well, hopefully get called up for their international teams.

“It’s a great thing for him (Callum Wilson) individually and I’m sure for his family.

“Callum had a difficult career, it wasn’t always about successes.

“He has risen from the lower leagues and is now going to the World Cup.

“I think it was brilliant to witness first hand.

“When you see how this has been achieved through consistency, hard work and a very positive attitude.

“Even when he was injured, his instinct was to come back better.

“He has a way of scoring goals and a uniqueness about him.”
