Jarvis out to impress on international stage

Matt Jarvis has become the first Wolves player since Steve Bull in 1992 to earn a call-up to the England squad. The winger is rightly over the moon with his inclusion and has described it as "a dream" after Fabio Capello finally decided the 24-year-old is international class. Jarvis will be in contention to pick up his first cap this weekend against Wales and again in the following friendly against Ghana. Jarvis proved a point again this weekend, scoring his the only goal in the 1-0 defeat of Aston Villa at Molineux.

The call-up has been long deserved after storming the league this season. Jarvis seems to be the perfect winger, with pin-point crossing ability combined with lighting pace and quick feet. While the wingers in the England team always seem to have weaknesses in one area of their game, Jarvis looks to have all the attributes to needed to succeed at the top level. Those wondering how to use Betfair may want to back him to do well on his debut.

An excited Jarvis expressed his delight at his call up while speaking to the club website.

He said: "It's great for me and I'm delighted but having been named in the squad it will be a case of meeting up tonight and aiming to impress. Like every player it's been a dream of mine to try and play for England since starting off in the game and getting into the squad takes me one step closer."

Jarvis' impressive performance at the weekend was just the latest in a string of quality displays for a struggling Wolves side. The former Gillingham youngster has taken to Premier League football like the proverbial duck, and a number of the big boys are closely monitoring Jarvis' situation come the summer. If Wolves do go down, then holding on to their star player would be a seemingly impossible mission for Mick McCarthy and those looking for a little Betfair help probably understand this.

Until the end of the season though, Jarvis will be doing all he can to help Wolves start climbing away from the relegation zone. With nearly half the sides in the league in real danger of being dragged into the battle at the bottom, Wolves will be hoping to build on their Villa victory and put together an important run.
