Norwich City striker Steve Morison is revelling in Welsh life after scoring his first goal for the country, and has admitted that his national team drought did not worry him.

The 28-year-old forward scored in Wales' 2-1 win over Montenegro, but now only has eyes for the England clash on Tuesday night.

"It's good to get the first goal - even if I tried my best to miss it!” he joked.

"If you get yourself in the right positions, as I did for my tap-in, then the goals will come. But most importantly we got the win.

"It didn't matter who scored as long as we won, but it is special to get my first Wales goal in a victory."


 

Wales remain at the bottom of Group G behind Bulgaria, who lost to England 3-0 on Friday.

But Morison is hopeful for an upset as the Red Dragons travel to Wembley to take on the Three Lions, who sit at the top of their qualification group with 14 points.

"Now, we can look forward to England," said Morison, "It's obviously much better going in there on the back of a win.

"We've done England a favour (for qualifying), but hopefully we'll go to Wembley on Tuesday and do Montenegro a favour."

Meanwhile Norwich welcome West Bromwich Albion to Carrow Road this weekend in a bid for their first win of the Barclays Premier League since their promotion.
