ENGLAND WIN WORLD CUP
Here we are, at the WORLD CUP FINAL!!! England vs Italy. As soon as the game kicked off, both teams were in each others throats, challenging for the ball as they looked to dominate the game. England were playing some nice football and the young guns were certainly stepping up to the plate and showed no fear. It was Italy though who made the breakthrough with Matia Destro opening the scoring with a fine strike with help off the post. The lead didn't last too long as young striker Welbeck who impressed throughout the tournament was put through one-on-one and kept himself composed as he coolie slid the ball home into the net. The winner arrived shortly after with Rooney getting his 7th goal of the World Cup with a well taken free kick. England managed to hold on for the win.
First I'd love to congratulate you on winning the World Cup in 48 years! How are you feeling?
It's been a memorable tournament with so many upsets and to win the World Cup is the most fantastic feeling. I am so proud of the players who performed well, the staff and the fans for supporting us all the way through.
You decided to include quite a number of young players. How do you think they performed?
Well the likes of Phil Jones, Jack Wilshere are our future and they do play regularly for their clubs and performed well over the course of the season and carried that form into the tournament. I thought they were fantastic, the whole bloody lot of them. Sorry if I swear, just had too much to drink!
Well that's fine, I'll let you enjoy the celebrations. Let me grab you there, Steven! You led this team to the World Cup, how was it leading England out to a major final for the first time?
It was a fantastic feeling, I've captained England many times but to lead my country out into a major final is just wonderful. The pressure was on us especially after the last World Cup and to beat Germany on the way to the final was superb. The lads, the fans everyone involved have done themselves proud especially our younger players who really stepped up.
You decided to step down as captain. What was the reason for that?
Well, I think my time is up as captain and for someone else whether its someone younger or experienced to lead now. We have many leaders in our squad such as Rooney, Lampard, Hart so anyone who is handed it will have deserved it.
Thanks Steven and enjoy the celebrations. Right Ashley, if I can have a quick word.
Of course Kelly, always a pleasure, you sexy thing!
*blushes* Well done on winning the World Cup. At the age of 33 most thought you wouldn't play many games but you played 6 games. How did you feel?
Well you always want to be playing don't you no matter how old you are. As long as you feel fit and training well and showing you're boss what you can do, nothing else matters.
You managed to also score your very first England goal no other than against Germany. That must have been special.
Scoring your first England goal in a major tournament especially against Germany was certainly special. Thanks Kelly.
