Playing for England means everything to me.

In any walk of life people work hard to reach the top of their profession and we’re no different as footballers.

We want to maximise our potential and reach the top – and the top for us is to play for your country.

And to represent your country at a major tournament is the absolute pinnacle. It’s what you strive for when you start playing football.

If I didn’t play football I’d still be an England fan so I know how big a deal it is.

It’s a huge honour and something that we should all be really proud of.
