The former England captain said he valued the support of his teammates throughout tough moments of his career.

"It's the same for all of us six. There were good times, there were bad times, there were troubled times where we all stuck together," he said.

"But that is part of the movie, part of the history of the six of us.

"That is why it makes this such a great story."
