“You have seen Italy, we are forced to have the play-off. I’m happy for Harry because he met with England. We’re talking about a world class striker and he’s an important player for us so it’s a boost for him to score. And I’m very happy because I have the opportunity to get to know him a lot better.
“I understood that he is a top player in many ways. He wants to train very, very hard and improve. It’s fantastic for me because my first job is to improve the players, take the players to another level, another step. I think a lot of players can do that in this team. ”
