Ross Barkley feels more mature after two years in England wilderness

"I've had hard times over the last two years", he told a news conference after training with England ahead of their Nations League games against Croatia on Friday and Spain on Monday.

Here's what the former Southampton and England striker had to say.

It's been a while since I've been called up and this is the first time I've been selected since I've been with Chelsea.

Jurgen Klopp's side have started the season well domestically, accumulating 20 points from their first eight games, and now sit joint-top of the table alongside Manchester City and Chelsea ahead of the worldwide break.

"We aim to improve every game, even if it is against Chelsea, for example, and we want to win every game".

"I had to accept where I was at", he added. I don't think they have been tested that much really, and they lost their two games against Manchester City and Chelsea - although they were unlucky against Chelsea.

"If you want to see fresher (players), give them a summer break", he said.

However, Mahrez's miserable record from the spot continued as City's club record 60 million pound (US$79 million) signing missed for the fourth time in his last six penalties by blasting well over the bar.

Lady Gaga mental health essay calls for funding and awareness
According to the global agency, 10 to 20 per cent of children and adolescents worldwide suffer from mental disorders. One such discussion was held on Twitter earlier this year during May, which is considered as Mental Health Month.

With a two-week break for worldwide matches, we asked Soccer Saturday pundit Matt Le Tissier for his verdict on the start of the 2018/19 campaign. Don't write Chelsea out but they need a real "goal-getter".

"I saw the game against Liverpool and I thought Chelsea were at full pelt to stay in that game. I don't know. I [asked] him: 'Big one?' and he said: 'I don't think so, but big enough that I go off'".

It's all helped me mature as a person and a player too.

It's great living there, I haven't got any kids or anything yet, so I just wanted to experience living in west London.

"I think Chelsea and Liverpool are the ones that have really impressed so far and Man United and Spurs are the ones that haven't played as well". You can see how he's started the season and the World Cup that he had.

"In that situation they are much better than us".

"Maybe over the last few years I've been a bit inconsistent but now I'm fully focused on giving consistent performances".
