"A lot of people have been talking about me and Frank Lampard and where I'm going to play all week but, as long as I am in this team and we are winning football matches, then I'm happy.

"I thought I played well, but every game I play for club or country I try to play the best I can. Sometimes I haven't always hit the heights I would have liked to, but I'm moving forward and I'll continue to work hard and give everything I have got for the country."
