Will Grigg admits he “couldn’t really have done much more” to book his place at Euro 2016 as he prepares for his last chance to book his place on the plane.
Northern Ireland host Belarus tonight in a friendly international, with boss Michael O’Neill due to name his 23-man squad for the finals at dinnertime tomorrow.
And Grigg – whose 28 goals helped fire Latics to the League One title – is champing at the bit to prove he’s worthy of a squad number.
“I’d like to think I couldn’t really have done much more to get in there,” he told the Evening Post.
“I came into the training camp full of confidence and fully fit, and fingers crossed I’ve done enough.
“At the end of the day it’s the gaffer’s decision, but it’s something I’d like to be part of.”
With 20 goals in his last 21 games at club level, Grigg is in the form of his life at the perfect time.
“I probably am, I think you’d have to say that,” he acknowledged.
“I’ve been scoring goals, playing well, helping Wigan, and that’s always good. On a personal note, I’m very happy – I didn’t really want the season to end.
“And hopeful it’s not ended for me, with the Euros coming later this summer and I’m desperate to be involved.”
