ea­gerly-awaited Cup tour­na­ment.

Speak­ing to Ger­man out­let SportBild, Schindler said: “Of course this is a dream (to go to the World Cup).

“And I would like to be Löw’s World Cup sur­prise.

“But that is very far away for me. I’ve only com­pleted a to­tal of 26 First Di­vi­sion matches. This must not be for­got­ten.”

In those 26 matches, the ex-1860 Mu­nich man has helped Town to 17th in the Pre­mier League table and has kept them in with a shot at top-flight sur­vival.

His dis­plays have con­trib­uted to Town spend­ing a large ma­jor­ity of the sea­son out­side of the rel­e­ga­tion zone, and have even given rise to some English jour­nal­ists en­quir­ing about his fam­ily tree.

The de­fender re­vealed: “The English me­dia have even asked if I have English an­ces­tors so I can play for Eng­land.”

Although that does not seem like a pos­si­bil­ity for Schindler, he did sug­gest that he wanted to stay in the UK for a longer pe­riod of time.

“The Pre­mier League is ad­dic­tive,” said the man whose penalty sent Town into the top flight for the first time in 45 years.

“Ev­ery week you face the best foot­ballers in the world. That gives it a spe­cial charm. Here I want to prove my­self and de­velop.”

And Schindler wants to de­velop in the top flight at Town, build­ing on the 75 ap­pear­ances he has made since ar­riv­ing from his home­land in the sum­mer of 2016.

He added: “I never be­longed to the best. But nev­er­the­less I made my way.

“For me, the same motto ap­plies here as in our team: No lim­its, no lim­its. But now I want to stay at that level with Hud­der­s­field. “
