Liverpool youngster Andre Wisdom wants to start making up for England's poor showing at the Under-21 European Championship in the friendly against Scotland on Tuesday
England crashed out at the group stage after failing to win a game in Israel, with coach Stuart Pearce failing to have his contract renewed as a result in the summer.
The 20 year old Wisdom is planning on making a big impression for Liverpool this season with Brendan Rodgers likely to give the club's youngsters a chance once again and his first opportunity to impress will come in the friendly against Scotland at Bramall Lane.
After a disappointing summer Wisdom believes that the Scotland game will be a chance for him to show he is capable of recovering from such a setback.
"I can stand here making excuse after excuse but we have to start doing our talking on the pitch," he told the Mirror. "We need to go out against Scotland, impress the fans and impress the manager and show we have learned.
"I can't say I've got over what happened in Israel. But now people who saw that are saying we're not good enough and we have to try to prove them wrong.
"We can only start doing that by winning games."
Wisdom will certainly have more chances for Liverpool in this campaign after the retirement of Jamie Carragher and Rodgers is known for handing young players a chance to step up to the senior side with both Raheem Sterling and Suso enjoying breakthrough seasons last term.
And he will be closely watching Wisdom's showing for England on Tuesday ahead of the new campaign.
