Danny Dyer couldn’t contain his delight after finding out Jarrod Bowen was in the England squad for the Euros.

Given how much of a massive West Ham fan he is, Danny Dyer couldn’t have asked for his daughter to be with a better man than Jarrod Bowen. Everything the winger does both on and off the pitch is full of class. On top of that, he scored one of, if not, the most important goals in West Ham’s history.

Both Bowen and Danny have made it clear how good their relationship is. As a result, likely more than any other West Ham fan, the actor was overjoyed to see the father of his grandchildren called up to represent England at the European Championships.

“Yes!” Dyer shouted when finding out the news live on talkSPORT.  “I swear to God I had no idea! So he’s going, he’s on the plane – as he should be! Listen, I’m over the moon mate. This kid, he deserves it. He’s worked hard. I thought he had a lovely 90 minutes [against Bosnia].”

“I’ve been listening to your lovely show of course, the governors, having a debate over playing time and what does that mean? If they play a lot that means they might not go and you two were in debate about maybe if they don’t play they’re certain to go. Or, they’re a certainty to go as [Southgate] knows what he’ll get from them.”

“I just think – he should have nicked a goal at the end, obviously, [Ezri] Konsa got in the way! They’re good pals them two. But I’m over the moon! That’s great for my Dani as well, and Jarrod, because they didn’t quite know what they were doing this summer you know having a holiday or not. That also means I’m going to the Euros!”

What role Bowen will play remains to be seen, but we all know what he’s capable of.  If Southgate calls upon him, he won’t disappoint and there’s everything reason to believe he could be key to England’s potential success.
