Worrall ready for tough pre-season

30 June 2017

Joe Worrall is relishing getting stuck into pre-season training after a successful summer in the England set up.

The centre back played a starring role at the Toulon Tournament for the Three Lions, captaining them to the trophy and being named as the tournament's second-best player.

Worrall said: "Being away with England was very good, I enjoyed every moment of it. I was proud to be called up and to go on and win the tournament was unbelievable.

"It is something that I will remember forever. To get called up was an honour in the first place but to captain the team and lift the trophy was one of the best feelings I have had.

"For me to be able to play for Forest was a big thing then to go away with England was the cherry on top of the cake."

After a busy summer, the 20-year-old is now looking forward to the hard work that lies ahead in pre-season and making sure he is in the best possible shape for the new campaign.

He said: "It is exciting times. A lot of the lads don't like pre-season but I quite enjoy it! Coming back in and seeing everybody, having a laugh and getting fit again is something that a lot of teams underestimate but normally the fittest teams are right up there in the league.

"If we can get as fit as possible and as match ready as possible, we can gear towards that first game against Millwall."
