Nathan Redmond sat down with TheFA.com on Wednesday to take part in a Twitter Q&A, and the in-form winger was inundated with questions from fans.
The 19-year-old joined the session from the squad's base in Reading, where he is preparing for England Under-21s game against Moldova on Thursday and tackled questions ranging from the best players he’s played with, his favourite player growing up and his philanthropic work for HIV awareness charity Saving Lives UK and Help Harry Help Others; a Birmingham based charity that raises money for children suffering from serious illnesses.
He said: “They’re two really good charities that I try to get involved in. Anything for a good cause is always worth doing in my opinion.
"As footballers it’s easy for us to reach out to a lot of people because kids and football fans will want to listen and they’ll want to get involved.”
As well as his interests and commitments off the pitch, Redmond also faced a several questions from Fantasy Football managers, eager to know whether he could continue his impressive early-season form.
“I’ll give it a try,” he said. “No promises though.”
