Chelsea defender Gary Cahill is enjoying his big match experience with the Blues.
‚ÄúIt is positive for me that I am doing well in difficult games,‚ÄĚ said Cahill. ‚ÄúI thrive on it.
‚ÄúThat‚Äôs what you want as a footballer, to perform well in the big, high-profile games. They are brilliant, brilliant.
‚ÄúWe had the Bayern Munich game at Chelsea that was very tough and high-pressure, and it was no ¬≠different for England in Ukraine. I‚Äôve proved I can play in those big games for club and country now. That‚Äôs a big thing. From when I made the move to Chelsea, there were always going to be question marks, but I feel I‚Äôve answered them now.
‚ÄúI‚Äôve played in the big games and I‚Äôve done well. For me, it‚Äôs about ¬≠consistently churning out ¬≠performances and looking to improve at the same time. Hopefully, I‚Äôve got rid of the question marks over whether I can play at the top level.‚ÄĚ
