In Rod we trust?
Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell reckons England have got what it takes to win the European Under-21 Championship this summer.
He said: “I’m definitely hoping that we can go very far and definitely win it.”
The Toffees youngster said the experience of tournament football he received at the previous U21 championship in 2009, when England were beaten 4-0 by Germany in the final, would be vital in the forthcoming competition.
Rodwell was talking to Mark Chapman at the launch of the new Adidas Predator boot yesterday. Sadly, or perhaps fortunately, OTP didn’t have the opportunity to ask Jack his thoughts on us making his old Bebo bicep photo one of the top Google Images results for his name.
