CAPTAIN COLEMAN: ‘WE WANT TO WIN NEXT GAME FOR KING’

first_imgSeamus ColemanKILLYBEGS man Seamus Coleman has spoken of his pride in captaining his country against Germany last night.The Everton player and his team were on the wrong end of a 3-0 defeat in Cologne.But he says the side is determined to win against Kazakhstan on Tuesday – for interim boss Noel King. “It was very special (to be captain), it came as a shock really. Obviously Robbie Keane wasn’t playing so it was up for grabs I suppose. But I was delighted to get the honour and my family back home will be delighted. It’s what you want as a kid,” said Seamus.“It’s a massive honour to lead your country. Robbie spoke to me before the game and just said, ‘Play your normal game.’ That’s what I did and I really enjoyed it.”He’s hoping he might get to keep the captaincy when a new permanent manager is appointed.“We’ll see. We’ve got a lot of leaders in the team and I’m sure you know Robbie will be about for a while yet. But if the opportunity came up and I was offered it, obviously I’d be delighted to take it,” he said. On the match itself, the Donegal man said: “It was a tough night. Brilliant team, Germany, with world-class players. Obviously a disappointing scoreline but there was some positives. We had a couple of chances that we could have taken, but we didn’t tonight. Hopefully on Tuesday night we can take some of those chances.”Looking forward to Tuesday he added: “For Noel, who’s come in for the two games, it would be nice to get a victory for him. As players as well, you want to win every game you take part in and hopefully we can on Tuesday night. CAPTAIN COLEMAN: ‘WE WANT TO WIN NEXT GAME FOR KING’ was last modified: October 12th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CaptainCologneGermanyIrelandseamus colemanlast_img read more
