England midfielder Fabian Delph has admitted that the 2018 World Cup has been a fantastic moment for him.
Delph could be handed an outing as Gareth Southgate’s side take on Belgium in the third-placed playoff today.
“For me personally it’s been a fantastic season. I managed to play quite a lot of football and in a position that I’ve never played before, so it was a learning season. A very enjoyable one. In terms of my development, I feel still like I have a lot of development to do, a lot of areas that I can work at,” Delph told reporters via Sports Mole.
“It’s very important to be playing regular football because if not you lose your distances, your timing – you start to basically get older and fade away, so this season has been a great season for me personally. And to get into the World Cup squad’s been the highlight of my career.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it and I think when I get time to go home and sit down and talk to the family, there’ll be a lot of memories that I’ll keep close to my heart. Hopefully I can continue to keep playing in the Manchester City team and keep getting in the England squads.”
If England wins Belgium then it would be their best World Cup showing since lifting the trophy in 1966.
