West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino admits that his call-up to the English national team is the first step in his "big vision" for the future.

Roy Hodgson named the striker in the Three Lions' squad for the upcoming European qualifiers against Slovenia. Berahino has been a regular in the under-21 team, but is now ready to partner with Wayne Rooney for his country.

The Burundi-born striker has been in impressive form for the Baggies this season and that has seen him being linked with various Premier League clubs like Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

The 21-year-old striker has revealed his ambitions of playing in Europe and in the World Cup with England, and has also admitted that he is willing to leave West Brom in order to achieve his dreams. But he has credited his current employers for making him the player he is today.

"I have a big vision and hopefully I can achieve my goals," Berahino said, as quoted by the Mirror.

"My ambition would be to play in the Champions League, be involved in England's seniors and go to play in big ­tournaments like World Cups and Euros.

"If that is what it comes to then it will have to be that," the England under-21 striker said, when asked about leaving the Baggies to achieve his dreams.

"But I appreciate what West Brom have done for me, and I am working hard to bring the club up and try to win as many games as I can.

"If we can win on Sunday it will have been a great week for me," the West Brom striker explained.
