I have been given the name of a good surgeon and I am going to have a pin inserted.

It is a title decider. But it's not going to decide any titles just yet.

He [Hansen] developed a lot of young guys like myself. He blooded us and gave us our chance.

We're very confident ahead of Germany, I wouldn't swap our squad for anyone else's.

Alfie [Thomas] will be captain, he's a brilliant captain, but it was great standing in for him.

I wasn't aware that five was the record and that's a fantastic feat - I've scored four goals a couple of times before, but I don't remember ever scoring five in a game.

That's the way football is. There's no point getting too low. If we don't qualify for Germany then OK, but we're still in a good position. We've got two games to send us through, so let's see where we are after these two games before we get too high or too low.

We haven't played well for a full 90 minutes for a while now, the last game (against Austria) was a step in the right direction until David was sent off. We need a good performance to lift everyone. There was some doom and gloom even though we've qualified.

Mentally, he's as strong as an ox.
