Asked about the media scenario regarding a return of his into English national team ranks, West Ham centre-back Aaron Cresswell stated:

I could arguably say I’m at the top of my form, as it was four or five years ago when I played for England and it was an unbelievable experience. But now my main focus is West Ham. With the amount of games we’ve got, I can’t think about anything else. It’s nice when you pick up a ‘paper and read some bits and bobs and nice stuff being written, but I don’t really concentrate on it.”

As a team, everything has gone so well and I feel happy, confidence and content down here. My two kids were born here and I’ve been here a long time now, so to be playing European football in a fantastic stadium in my eighth season at West Ham, it’s going well!

It has, and the challenge for us now is to keep entertaining them and winning games. Anyone who spent a week with us at the training ground would see our togetherness and spirit. I’m a big believer in team spirit and the lads we’ve got here might have a laugh and a joke having breakfast, but the minute we walk over that white line it’s serious and the Gaffer won’t allow anyone’s standards to slip. On the fans, the atmosphere around the ground is fantastic. In the last five minutes of the Liverpool game, when we needed that little bit of backing to give us energy, the crowd certainly lifted us”.
