Soccer is a magical game.
I love little kids looking up to me, young players looking up to me, respecting me.
When you have kids you do grow up. I have just started realising it now-it changes the world, having children.
The buzz is still with me. I get goose bumps.
My parents have been there for me, ever since I was about 7.
I just want people to see me as a hard-working footballer and someone who is passionate about the game.
I still look at myself and want to improve.
My private life is perfect. If your private life and your life outside football is good, then it is good on the field for you.
We stay as a team. I might be England captain, but that doesn’t mean I get treated differently.
I’ve felt a little tired, but I’m only 24. I love playing football. That’s my job and that’s what I love doing.
I can play in the center, on the right and occasionally on the left side.
I knew it was my time to retire, when I saw Messi running past me.
I feel this pang of regret whenever I watch sport; this sense that I will never play a big match again.
