West Ham United goalkeeper Joe Hart said his English career so far not been a success.
While Hart made great of his career after his debut for the Three Lions in 2003 and has gain 73 caps for his country and gaining the first choice during Euro 2012, 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016, it seems that he has taken it low after being made as a surplus requirement at Manchester City last season.
The 30-year-old spent his last term on goal with Torino and now joined West Ham on a season-long loan deal.
Reflecting on his international career, Hart told The Offside Rule podcast that it was something he didn’t need to dream about because he didn’t think it was possible.
“The next thing after that is to do something with your England career and make it matter. I have failed up until now so I need to change that.”
“I want to amass as many caps as I can, I want to be the goalkeeper who plays for England, but I would swap all of that for a trophy or playing an important role in a good summer for the nation. That’s my only intention when I play for England.”
“I would have loved to have signed somewhere permanent: I want to be set, I want to have goals and be driven.
“But there was too much money put on my head and people weren’t willing to pay it so another loan came about.
“I was very grateful when West Ham gave me the opportunity, so it’s another case of getting my head down and working hard and fighting for the cause.”
