You get a bad result one week and it's a natural reaction to go out in the next game and put it behind you and do well.
He's a fantastic player who's done very well in Scotland and he's an absolute handful.
He's a quality player.
There is a hangover from a defeat like Denmark - ask any player about when they've had a bad game, it's still in there somewhere in the back of your mind.
I played against him in training every day and he used to elbow me, kick me and head-butt me.
We're not expecting it to be the same as then at all.
I had a chat with the manager to get a clear picture about stories in the papers [about being dropped].
When we played together at West Ham I thought we had one of the best strikers in the league in John.
