Stones: Opposition are nothing when you play for England

John Stones Everton awayEverton defender John Stones has revealed that it doesn’t matter who he is playing against, he is just delighted to be playing for his country.

The 21 year old centre back, who Roy Hodgson will likely play at right back tomorrow, said that no matter how good the opposition, playing for England spurs him on.

“I went to watch a game at Wembley before, but to actually play there on my debut makes it a real special place to go,” said Stones.

“Our last five games there have all been wins and it really gives us confidence.

“France have some top players and Olivier Giroud is one who is used to playing at Wembley and has been doing it for Arsenal.

“The feeling of playing for England, though, blanks out the opposition and you just think about pulling on the Three Lions.”
