How old were you when you started playing FIFA? I started playing FIFA back in FIFA 07 to 09 kind of time so I would’ve been around six to eight years old.

Who would make your FIFA five-a-side team of just England players? Jordan Pickford, Harry Maguire, Jude Bellingham, Bukayo Saka and Harry Kane

What does it mean to be an eLion? I'm very proud to finally break into the national team. Lots of hard work has gone into this so I’m looking forward to competing with the lads.

How would you describe your playing style? My playing style is aggressive, I want to be in control of the ball but I’m also someone who is very happy to defend a lead.

How do you assess England’s chances in the eNations Cup? We have a great chance of winning the eNations Cup because we have some of the best players in the world, so there’s no reason to not aim to win it.
