You can’t blame Michail Antonio for refusing to believe it. Playing for non-league Tooting & Mitcham seven years ago, and now called up to the England squad. We hardly believe it ourselves.
But it is believable, because Antonio is one of the hardest workers out there. Try convincing him of his England place though, like a West Ham physio did, and you’ll have your work cut out.
Antonio has been a popular addition at West Ham, and with two goals in three Premier League games already this season, things couldn’t be going much better for the 26-year-old.
But if he scores on his international debut, he might just ask you to pinch him. For the last time, it’s not a dream Michail!
