Jamie Dornan in New York
About the pressure for being the captain: It’s something I think about all the time. In fact, it’s something I’ve thought about since Mano selected his very first squad, for that friendly against USA. Time passes quickly and the pressure doesn’t stop increasing. It’s totally normal to get nervous, to have butterflies in your stomach, but you relax once the game kicks off. The fear of losing is always there, but you mustn’t let that fear dull your desire to win. In my particular case, because I’m the captain, the pressure is greater but fortunately it’s something I’m able to cope with well. Wearing the armband makes me remember everything I’ve been through to get here and, for that reason, you can be sure that I’m going to do my best to do it proud, so that everyone can look to me as an example to follow.
