West Ham defender Matthew Upson said scoring for England in Wednesday's friendly international win over Germany realised a childhood dream.
"It's a great feeling to score because it's something I've pictured doing since I was a kid," he said.
"It was a really great evening. I enjoyed the game and the whole team played well to get the result. It was a special moment for me."
"Last week was a solid performance," he added. "Because we are away from home at Sunderland we will be defending a lot more but perhaps hitting teams on the break will suit us.
"Maybe we can get in behind them as we have the pace with the boys up front and hopefully get some goals from that.
"Every place you go is tough but the result is very important."
