Sam Johnstone hopes his move to Crystal Palace earns him a World Cup place with England.

The goalkeeper has joined Palace in a free transfer from West Brom.

Johnstone was a part the England squad that reached the European Championship final in 2021, and hopes that his form at Palace can see him regain his national team place.

“It was unbelievable, a great experience – something that you'll live with forever," he said of the tournament. “It feels a bit weird that you were there. We did well, we got to the final and with it being in England we had our family there.

“Being in that squad, training every day, preparing for those high level games is something that everybody dreams of. Once you've had a taste of it, you want to keep going and getting into those squads, being with those high level players like I will be here day in, day out.

“That's an aim personally for me, to get back in those squads. Hopefully I'll settle in well here and that can be something I'm looking forward to."
