It means everything to me. My dream as a kid was to play for my hometown team Barnsley and then to play for England.
I know that every kid has a dream and I’ve been lucky enough to fulfil those dreams and I can’t put into words exactly how it feels.

But I don’t take it for granted one bit because it’s such a special feeling and one that I’ll never forget or want to end really.
I try and make every second count and enjoy every minute of it.
I always look forward to pulling on the jersey, that’s the main thing.
Going into the World Cup, if I get selected for the first game, just walking out and singing the national anthem will be massive for me.
