Burnley midfielder Jack Cork has backed Joe Hart to earn a recall with the England national side after impressing during the Premier League opener against Southampton. The former Manchester City man was brought into the squad after early season injuries to both Tom Heaton and Nick Pope and though the former has returned, Hart has now become the first-choice for Sean Dyche.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Cork has praised the impact of Hart since joining them from Manchester City during the summer. The midfielder added to suggest that the shot-stopper could reclaim a national team spot by keeping a consistent run of clean sheets for the Clarets, he said: “A lot of signings we do here have a point to prove and that is what keeps the squad hungry, keen to impress and prove people wrong. That is what drives the club.
