"I said the same thing before the Colombia game - it's not me getting carried away".

"You obviously have got your family at home and the kids that you need to keep in touch with, keep checking in or the missus might go mad".

"(We hoped we would have) a long month together, which we have done.

"I remember watching him at Tottenham coming up, a few times as a 15-year-old kid and he was just banging in goals then - and he's just carried that on season after season".

"Just to be a part of it, we're absolutely buzzing".
