The 22 year-old, he'll be 23 before the season starts, missed out on the World Cup through injury having previously missed out on the Under 21 European Championships in 2013, won for the fourth time by Spain.

ITV snapped him up as part of their coverage giving us a fresh faced youngster among the former players and managers on show. He unsurprisingly thoroughly enjoyed his time in Samba country.

“I would have loved to have been playing but it was important to still be able to go out to Brazil and work in some way, to get that inspiration, to almost feel how much it hurt not to be able to play.

“It was a great experience and really interesting to see another side of football by working on television.

“There is a certainly pressure involved. In fact, I was more nervous doing the live TV than I was making my England debut!

“It’s live TV and you have to get it right. I had a positive reaction and I think I did alright. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

“The people love their football and they were partying 24/7. The beach was full of fans and it was a great experience to be part of it.

“The matches I covered were great, high-scoring and entertaining. There was a thought beforehand that the games might be a bit cagey, especially with the heat, but everyone has bought into the Brazilian way and it’s been attacking football, lots of goals and great for the neutral.”

Don't worry though folks, he's decided to wait a little while longer before taking up the microphone.
