I hope it’s enough – the Sunderland star has qualified for the World Cup | Tech US News


Sunderland star Bailey Wright has admitted he hopes he has proved himself enough to earn the right to play against France in Australia’s World Cup opener on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old centre-back has made eleven appearances for Tony Mowbray’s Sunderland side this season, captaining the side twice.

Wright has secured a place in Graham Arnold’s World Cup squad for Australia and will be looking to help the Socceroos make an impact in Qatar.

The Sunderland star admitted there is healthy competition in his squad for a place in Arnold’s starting line-up against world champions France on Tuesday.

Wright is also confident his national team boss and other coaching staff know what he can offer and hopes he has done enough to earn the right to feature against Didier Deschamps’ side.

“Each of us, in every position, is fighting for this jersey against France”was Wright quoted by the Sunderland Echo.

“We have a really healthy competition. We’re all friends.

“We all push each other. And we all want that shirt.

“Arnie and the coaching staff know what I can offer.

“I hope it’s enough. If not, I’m here to play my part in the team – I’m not going to throw my toys out of the pram.

“I’m here to represent my country in many ways.”

Sunderland will be hoping Wright can stay fit during Australia’s participation in the World Cup as they begin their Championship campaign from early December.
