Liverpool defender Clyne eager to realise childhood dream with England

Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne is eager to realise his childhood dream by representing England at Euro2016.

The 25-year-old, who watched the national squads of yesteryears on his TV as a child, is expected to be manager Roy Hodgson's first-choice right-back in this summer's tournament in France.

Clyne insists that he still feeling fresh after a hectic season with Liverpool and is determined to achieve a lifetime goal of playing for his country at a major tournament.

"I still have a lot left in the tank to continue through the tournament," he said.

"I am young and fresh and hopefully I can get more experience by playing in this tournament as it is my first tournament.

"This is what you see as a little kid when you watched England on TV so I am looking forward to it and hopefully it will be a good tournament.

"I was on holiday for the last tournament and I watched it on television in a Miami hotel so I am excited - everyone wants to be playing for their country.

"I've been through losing two cup finals, which is disappointing, but it urges me on to do better and try to win this time."
