"So it would be Utopia to win the World Cup...but every time England wins, it's the most marvellous feeling, every time. Because you know you're representing the whole nation. When we did well at Ipswich, we did well for that community - but when Ipswich win, nobody in Plymouth gives a monkey's, do they? Nobody in Carlisle gives a monkey's. But when England win, the postman in Carlisle, and the girl who sells papers in Plymouth, they care. Because it's the nation."
