Everton midfielder Osman thrilled with personal form

Everton midfielder Leon Osman is delighted with his current form.

Osman is unsure whether playing 90 minutes for England in Stockholm has changed him as a player, but he is content to find himself in the spotlight more often.

“I’m not sure if it has changed the way I play,” he said. “I just go out there each game and play the best I can. They always say if a player is playing with confidence you’ll get the best out of him, and I’m certainly full of confidence right now.

“I’ve gone through patches where I’ve played really well but I suppose the main difference is focus and recognition. I’ve never really been under the spotlight because I played well in the past but now I am a bit. It’s nice but I’m not the type of player to get carried away with it. I’m certainly in a much stronger position to deal with the spotlight. I’m experienced and have been playing for 10 years so I can cope with it mentally and perform well on the pitch.”
