Hart: England Can Be The Surprise Package At Euro 2016

share on:

England goalkeeper Joe Hart, is confident the three lions can be a surprise package at the Euro 2016.

The young side has a squad that includes nine men with less than 10 caps, with Harry Kane, the first choice striker having just 11.

With Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Jamie Vardy making their way into the squad after impressing at club level.

And Hart feels a new-look England may benefit from an element of surprise in France.

“I wouldn’t say people would know too much about us in terms of us as a team,” he told The Telegraph.

“They know individual players but the team that is potentially going to start aganst Russia might not have been seen before in England shirts.

“We have weeks to prepare 23 good players in good form and mould time into a team that thinks and works together.”

England have lost on penalties in the quarter-finals of the last two editions of the European Championship, but Hart is confident that he can prove the nation’s hero in another shootout.

“I have always had the mentality of thinking what is the best moment [to dive],” the Manchester City man added. “Of believing in what I am doing.

“I have got it wrong many, many times but I have always believed I know what they are thinking or what they are going to do.

“I realise it is not easy to take a penalty. I try and build as much pressure as I can [on the taker] and be in control as much as I can.”
