expects he will be a busier man on Wednesday than he was in Sunday’s World Cup opener against Iraq.
The Three Lions goalkeeper was a spectator for long periods of the game as England U20s strolled into a two goal lead.
But it was a different story in the last 15 minutes and Johnstone was left exposed as Iraq hit back with two late goals to equalise.
Now they face Chile in their second Group E game in Antalya and Johnstone believes everyone in the squad is ready to go again.
The Manchester United stopper said: “The lads are excited and can’t wait for the game now.
“I think after the frustrating result the other night, we need to go out and get the win
“We just need to go out and do the same thing that we did in the first hour against Iraq, which is what we’ve been working on for the past three weeks.”
Chile won their opener against Egypt by 2-1 just before England took to the field on Sunday and the players and coaches had chance to see them in action before their own game.
And Johnstone expects the South Americans to play a vastly different style to the largely negative tactics employed by Iraq.
He added: “I expect I’ll be a little busier but as a team, I think the lads are good enough to adapt to their style of play.
“But hopefully they’ll be just as worried about us as we are about them.
“We’ll see what they’ve got, the lads will be up for it.”
With two games still remaining in the group, the 20-year-old and his team-mates know that a win will go a long way to helping them progress to the next stage of the competition.
And that is what Johnstone has in mind with the final group game against Egypt quickly following on Saturday.
He said: “We want to get through as early as possible and we don’t want to be leaving it until the last game to get through.
“Hopefully we can get the win and make sure of it on Wednesday.”
