The Everton left-back said: “I had a chat with him. I was a bit nervous about going to speak to him to be honest. I wasn’t sure how it would be received.
“I don’t know (if he knew me) and, to be honest, I didn’t really ask. I was one of the few in the squad who actually knew who he was, which was disappointing enough. I was the only who went over.
“We kept it really brief. I had to get really geed up just to go over and say hello to him. I don’t think anyone else in the squad even recognised him.
“Oh, Gaz Nev (Roy Hodgson's assistant Gary Neville) did, but that was it. I knew he’d played the night before and that he had a couple of gigs coming up, so I mentioned those and he wished us good luck.”
