"I am excited. It's surreal but I'm delighted to be here and I just want to get on with the job.

"As soon as I got the call I wanted to get things sorted, get the papers signed and get back into training.

"I remember when I got my first England call I thought it was a wind-up.

"I knew this one wasn't. But there's a lot of banter in the game. You can tell from the expression on my face I'm excited but I just want to get my head down now and get on with it."
