Wolves captain Conor Coady full of pride making England debut

Wolves captain Conor Coady is full of pride making his England debut.

The defender became the first gold and black player in 30 years – since legendary striker Steve Bull – to start for England, putting in a commanding performance at the centre of the back three during the goalless draw with Denmark in Copenhagen.

He told the club's website: “It's a dream come true. I said in my press conference last week how much it means to me and what it means to me.

“It's incredible. To play with this group of players – there's sone world class players in this team and don't let them tell you any different, some fantastic footballers, training's been incredible, and it's something I'll remember for the rest of my life, honestly.

“It's 0-0, it's a clean sheet, you look at it as a defender and it's a clean sheet, we're happy with that, but we're disappointed we're not going away with the win.

“But from my own personal point of view, it's an immense pride to play for my country. It's amazing."
