Jarvis keen to build on debut

The winger is also determined not to become a one-cap wonder after

appearing as a second-half substitute during the 1-1 draw with

Ghana. Jarvis had been in two of Fabio Capello’s provisional squads

earlier this season without making the step up. He finally made his

debut in front of proud Wolves boss Mick McCarthy after never

appearing at any of the youth levels for his country. But Jarvis’

first priority now is to help the Molineux club preserve their

top-flight status for another season, starting with Saturday’s

clash at Newcastle. Jarvis said: “This is a massive confidence

boost for myself and hopefully for the club for the battles ahead.

“People tell me the Wolves fans were dying to see me on the pitch

and it was fantastic, a great feeling, hard to describe. “It is

going to be great for me to go back now full of confidence and to

enjoy the rest of the season but it will only be really enjoyable

if we stay up. “I’ve got to go back to Wolves, make sure I play

consistently well and make sure we stay up. “It is a massive game

for us on Saturday and hopefully we can go into it in good

spirits.” Jarvis added: “We’ve got the belief that we can stay up.

We’ve been playing extremely well. “We’ve got a great squad, great

team spirit and I am sure we will be fine.” Jarvis knows the

competition he faces at England level, but the taste of playing for

his country has given him the appetite for more. He said: “All the

wingers in the squad are exceptional. “You saw from the Ghana game

and the other day against Wales that they are all a tremendous

talent. “They are all young as well and it is great for the future

of the country. “But playing for your country is what you dream

about and you want to represent your country and it is a fantastic

feeling. “But it has given me the appetite for more. Hopefully this

is the start. “I will keep working hard and make sure I am

consistently playing well. I’ll just have to wait and see what

happens.” The only downside of the last 10 days for Jarvis was

Wolves striker Kevin Doyle picking up a knee ligament injury on

Republic of Ireland duty which could sideline for the rest of the

campaign. Jarvis said: “I was absolutely gutted for him. To see him

coming off with an injury is never nice for anyone. “He is a vital

part of our team and he will be missed. “But we’ve got a great

squad and whoever comes in will do a fantastic job. “Obviously we

are very disappointed for him because he has been playing extremely

well.”
