  • [6] Chris Smalling on intensity growing for England

    "We've been wearing about four different layers in training, everyone has been sweating a lot more and that seems to be working - anything that makes us more ready, we'll do it. But I think each country - and especially us - will play their normal game. Our attacking force is all about pace and running at people and this squad has got that in abundance. We won't be changing our style for the conditions. We just want to make sure we're ready to play our game. We're going to go into each match the same way and if everyone can pull off what they've doing for their clubs, it's going to be exciting."

    “There's so much potential in the squad - there's that unknown factor about England. If everything comes together, we can take teams by surprise with our pace and attacking instincts and then who knows how far we can go? I think there's that possibility where nobody is sure what England are about and if players can play to their potential you never know what can happen. Roy talks to the guys one to one a lot. He will talk to everyone as a group and then during sessions he will pull you aside on your own or maybe in groups, whether it be the defenders or midfielders or whatever. He's very approachable - I found that from my days at Fulham and even more now at England. He's a guy you can always talk to, if you ever need advice he's always there and that's important for young players.”
