English pundit, Gary Lineker has come out to urge England players to enjoy Sunday’s Euro 2020 final against Italy. He recently revealed that the occasion would be the beginning of success for English football even if they lose.
According to him, he is currently wishing he can play with the current national team players because it is the sort of occasion professionals dream about.
Lineker added that he expects lots of adrenaline and nerves during the match because there is a lot to play for.
His words, “I wish I was playing with you. This is the sort of occasion you dream about as a player. And honestly, it’s much less nerve-racking out on the pitch than in the stands. The adrenaline takes care of the nerves and the tiredness.”
“It might sound strange to those who have never experienced it, but it was these knockout games, the really big-pressure moments, the extra time and even the penalties that I relished the most.”
“That chance to do something that other people will never get a chance to do. Go places where mortals will never tread. Who ever gets that opportunity? What better chance to show off who you really are?”
“Treasure it and, most of all, enjoy it — though, let’s be honest, you only will if you win.”
“But I’m confident you will win things. This is only the beginning, and this special group has many more years ahead. I really believe that, regardless of what happens tonight.”
“It’s mad, almost ridiculous, how much this game, this tournament, means to us. But it does matter.”
“If you win tonight, even if it’s just for a night, a week, or a month, it will stop us all in our tracks to focus on something good.”
“To celebrate the best of England. And we’ll all go absolutely bonkers together.”
“In their brilliance on and off the field, this team represents the very best of England in its diversity, dignity and shining social conscience,”
“To a man, they are thoughtful, empathetic and articulate. And they are changing what it means to be an England footballer.”
“It’s incredible, really, especially when you consider how young they are — they’re just kids! Though I can’t claim any part in their development, watching them I feel like a proud father.”
