“Hopefully that should put me in great shape for the World Cup. I think I’ll be a lot fitter.

“Of course I want to play 90 minutes as much as I can, but I understand I need to build up to that because I haven’t done it an awful lot in the last few years.

The 33-year-old said: “Whether any player would say the same thing, going on the pitch and having a full tank. is the most important and it will make you feel better sharper than on the pitch
