The Aberdeen winger hopes momentum continues to earn Canada a chance

The Aberdeen winger hopes momentum continues to earn Canada a chance

The 33-year-old is aiming to join the Copa America with Canada, which is participating in the tournament for the first time this summer. And he appears to be on his way to achieving that after becoming Aberdeen's star player over the past few weeks.

He provided two assists during the Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Celtic, and appears to have found his feet in the north-east at vital time.

Aberdeen sit sixth in the Scottish Premiership despite picking up two wins on the bounce and extending their unbeaten run in the league to six matches. But Hewlett believes belief has increased since Levin replaced Neil Warnock in mid-March.

“The coach has brought confidence to the team since taking charge,” the veteran winger said.

“It was important that we start the post-split games with wins. We have a bit of momentum lately and we have to keep that right until the end.

“There is some good talent at this club and we are going under Peter. The team is doing well in the league at the moment and we have to maintain that.

“We have to keep at it, and work day by day to get better – not just as individuals, but as a group.”

Hoilett knows that if he can continue to help Aberdeen by strengthening their seventh-place finish, it will boost his chances of remaining in the Canadian national team's plans.

He showed his talent for his country during the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where he appeared in all three group stage matches.

He will now aim to repeat his impressive form for the Dons to secure a place in another major tournament.

Canada is preparing to participate in the Copa America tournament scheduled from June 20 to July 14 in the United States, marking its first appearance in the competition, and must finalize its 23-man roster before June 12.

He continued: “It is tremendous for Canada to participate in the Copa America for the first time.” “If I am called up, I will be happy to represent my country.

“At the moment, I'm focused on playing every week for Aberdeen.”

Overall, Hoilett, who was Warnock's only signing during his short spell at Pittodrie, insists it has been a pleasure to be part of the Aberdeen squad.

He explained: “I am enjoying my time here and I get along well with the team, which is a good group.”

“We bond on and off the field. Everyone works hard for each other to get wins on the line.

“There's a great group of players here and a great changing room. It's fun fighting for each other on the pitch.

“There is some great talent at this club, some really good players.”
