Chelsea defender Gary Cahill is set to add to his 58 caps in the coming friendlies against Germany on November 10, and Brazil in the Bobby Moore Fund International on November 14.

The Chelsea captain is expected to lead the Three Lions and told FourFourTwo the honour that comes with captaining your country.

He said: “Any moment that you have the opportunity to wear the armband for your country is amazing. You kind of go in steps. You make your debut and then you want to progress, so to be given that opportunity was fantastic. Not just for me, but also for my family and everyone else – because it’s a huge occasion.

“I feel very lucky – if you look at the people who have had that armband in the past, there are some big names there. Nobody can take that away from you once you have had that.”
