Chelsea defender Gary Cahill is enjoying his big match experience with the Blues.
â€śIt is positive for me that I am doing well in difficult games,â€ť said Cahill. â€śI thrive on it.
â€śThatâ€™s what you want as a footballer, to perform well in the big, high-profile games. They are brilliant, brilliant.
â€śWe had the Bayern Munich game at Chelsea that was very tough and high-pressure, and it was no Âdifferent for England in Ukraine. Iâ€™ve proved I can play in those big games for club and country now. Thatâ€™s a big thing. From when I made the move to Chelsea, there were always going to be question marks, but I feel Iâ€™ve answered them now.
â€śIâ€™ve played in the big games and Iâ€™ve done well. For me, itâ€™s about Âconsistently churning out Âperformances and looking to improve at the same time. Hopefully, Iâ€™ve got rid of the question marks over whether I can play at the top level.â€ť
