It is my greatest honor and privilege to play this game. Playing for England in particular will always be my best gift. My dream came true on July 31, to win the Euro and become the European champion.

I have been very fortunate to have played for several clubs in my career. It’s a great honor to represent some of the biggest clubs in England and wear the shirt and create some incredible memories. Thanks to all the clubs that gave me the opportunity to be part of their football club.
