Where I’ve come from has helped me achieve what I want in the game. Playing football with my mates everyday on the streets, or when I’m at home constantly doing keepy ups, I think I’ve always been obsessed with football. It helps when you just love football like I do. I wake up buzzing to get into training, so when I’m there I make sure I listen to people who want to improve my game.
I just play my game and believe in my ability. I think that I can make the difference in every game I play in, and take every opportunity I’ve got – Phil Foden
