U19s captain John Lundstram tells FATV about his England honour
John Lundstram led England U19s to a winning end in 2012, courtesy of his last-minute penalty and is now targeting more success in 2013.
The Young Lions have more matches and the Elite Qualifying Round to look forward to in the new year and Noel Blake's side rounded off the current calendar with Tuesday's victory over Finland.
And Everton midfielder Lundstram believes there is still further improvement to come from England as the season goes on.
He told FATV: "I didn't think we did the best tonight really, but we kept going and I was just glad to get the goal.
"I thought in the first half, we could've done a bit better and in the second half, we played ourselves into the game.
"They pressed us well, but the further the game went on, the more we got on top really."
Having represented England in two Euro Championship Finals and an U17 World Cup in recent years, Lundstram is one of the most experienced players in Blake's squad, but he still says the honour of leading the Young Lions out as captain is something that he'll never tire of.
"Even the first time you put the armband on, it's brilliant and it still is now," he added.
"I've done it a few times now and I still get the same feeling every time I do."
