It is a role many young footballer's dream of wearing Three Lions on their shirt in the starting line up for the England squad. That was Ashley Young's ambition, and tonight, once again, he could play for his country.
Ashley Young's performances on the pitch have it seems always stood out. He was just 12-years-old when this PE report was written at his school in Stevenage.
Andy Braithwaite taught Ashley PE during his secondary school years and wrote his report.
He was captain of the school team and at the same time playing in Watford's Youth Academy. But his former maths teacher says he still took every subject seriously.
He left his mark on the teachers - and today's generation of pupils who he has visited.
The pupils here are taught that they can achieve their dreams if, like Ashley, they are determined.
