Wolves captain Conor Coady was part of the England squad which went all the way to the final of Euro 2020.

It was the best achievement by a Three Lions side since 1966, but Italy unfortunately won the tournament on penalties.

Speaking to England’s official website, Coady shared the pride he still has in that achievement even months on.

“We’ve had a couple of months to look back at what we did and say it was an incredible achievement. We believed so much that we could go and win it; it was incredible.

“I look back on it now with pride, especially because of what the country has been through over the last couple of years and what we were able to do as a team in terms of bringing a smile to people’s faces.

 

“That semi-final man. That semi-final. The feeling after the Denmark game when we were all on the pitch, with our arms around each other singing Sweet Caroline, that will stay with me forever.

“It is giving me goosebumps now. That feeling will live with me forever honestly. It was amazing.”

Coady sums up the thoughts of many England fans after a summer where they put smiles on faces across the country.

There will be heartache about not going all the way and winning it, but the strength of Coady’s feeling is clear.

Even when he doesn’t play, his leadership and personality is important around the group and he has established himself in the setup now.
