I am just happy to hit the back of the net.
I have worked with a lot of different people who have helped me along the way.
We’re always quick to pigeon-hole players and say ‘he’s a targetman’ or a ‘spin-in behind man.’ But I think I can bring different aspects of the game and heading is one of my strengths.
You can score goals at youth level but men’s football teaches you things. It teaches you real football and you realise that this game is sink or swim.

As long as some players are getting fined more for showing an advertisement on their boxer shorts or whatever it is than other players are for being racist then that’s morally wrong and it has to change.
The Premier League is a competitive league where strikers can be brought in for x amount of pounds and it might block your pathway as a young player. To go abroad, if it gives you the opportunity to play at the highest level in that country then I think it’s a no-brainer.

Some players hit the heights straight away, for me it’s been gradual improvement.

We’re human beings, we’re still learning and still growing.
No matter how good you are, or what level you get to, there’s always going to be people that don’t think you are very good or have their opinion to say.
I am a proud Englishman and proud every time I pull on the England shirt.
If you’ve got competition for places then you always need to be on top of your game.
