“It has been a very difficult period of time for everybody and us as England players and England representatives have the opportunity to uplift the nation,” the former Sheffield United player said on England’s YouTube show the Lions’ Den.

“Everyone loves the football and loves to watch England in the Euros and in competition. It is down to us to spread that joy and happiness.”
