Ben Chilwell admits he’s had the three best moments of his young career with the Three Lions and is glad to be back among the squad this month.

It’s fair to say, I’ve had some of the best moments of my career with England.

I think when you look at October and November, the four games that we had, I was lucky enough to play all four and we got four good results.

So it’s been a wicked few months, after making my debut on my home ground against Switzerland at the King Power Stadium, that was the highlight of my career.

You normally think that nothing can top your debut, but then the game away in Spain topped that. It was such a massive result, against one of the best teams in the world with some of the best players in a great stadium.

And then Croatia at home the following month topped that again. Being 1-0 down, to then show the character to come back and win 2-1 against one of the best teams in the world, in a game that meant something, that was definitely the best moment for me in an England shirt, especially as I was on the free-kick from which ‘H’ scored the winner.

The game with Croatia at Wembley in November was the best moment of my career so far

The celebrations, especially with it being at Wembley, everything around it made for one of the best moments in an England shirt and in my career.

It was a question that was asked after the World Cup: can we beat the big teams?

We needed to start winning these games that mean something so to be beating these big teams such as Spain and Croatia, it was a very good few months for the team and for me personally.

It’s been a while since the last camp, but it’s been nice to come back and see the boys and catch up on what’s been going on with a lot of them.

There’s a few new faces who have come in have settled right in as well and it’s a good bunch and we always like meeting up together.

It’s also the last meet up before the summer so it’ll give us a good confidence boost and momentum going into the Nations League.

I was so proud to make my full England debut at Leicester City last September

Although, the summer is on hold at the moment. We’re not looking at the Nations League, as we have some important qualifiers first and we want to win both to give us a good start in the qualifying campaign.

Euro 2020 will be amazing if we can qualify. We spoke about it at the start of the week and it will be as close to a home tournament we could get, without it being a home tournament.

There’s potential to play a few games at Wembley and I think that would be the highlight of everyone’s career, reaching the Euro Final at Wembley.

But there’s a lot of steps that we need to take in order to get there, which we’re hoping we can make this week.
