The best thing about football is that the rules are so simple. Anyone can play anywhere.
I just get up in the morning and say: 'Yeah man, I'm ready to score goals.'
I've always been a religious person, and I try to think that every disappointment might just be a blessing in disguise.
Before games, people ask whether I get nervous. To be honest, I don't get nervous, I just enjoy it. I am living the dream. When I was a kid I always wanted to play for my country and now I am here, I will enjoy it.
I understand it's difficult but you've got to think about yourself, you know, and not just follow the crowd.
I scored in a World Cup and I want that buzz again.
I prefer not to fly, but sometimes it's unavoidable.
I had to tell Dad, 'It will be okay and be positive; keep praying and have faith'. I have always known about cancer, but to be around someone who has it and to see what it does in such a short space of time was hard. It makes you think about your life, about what is important.
There is always going to be competition. When you play for a top club, you're going to attract top players. It's part and parcel of football.
I don't feel like I'm getting older. I think it's the way I've looked after myself. I take my football seriously. I love scoring goals and I get a good feeling from it, so I'll do whatever it takes to be fit and feel good in games.
I don't do chat-up lines. Girls often tell me I'm cheeky. Being cheeky seems to work OK for me.
I'm a forward, but I can't be the only forward at a club. Over the years, the clubs who've won titles have had several strikers.
I've got a Ferrari 430. It's black. I don't know what it cost but it wasn't cheap. I bought it because I was being a boy. It's fast and looks good.
Going to a major tournament, having that buzz - it's hard to put into words. It's a dream to go there, and to play. It's the biggest thing you can achieve in your career, and to go again would be a dream.
To win a major tournament you have to face the top teams at some point, but if you avoid those at the beginning then you can win games and build confidence. I think the key is just to get off to a good start.
It doesn't matter who you are, football's a business. At some stage you're going to have to leave a football club, that's just normal.
I love scoring - even in training.
If you have an argument with someone and you sulk, sometimes you don't want to speak to them. But it is important to keep your friends close to you and do the right things.

When you've something to fight for, you get the best out of yourself.
I feel 21. I've looked after myself and take my football seriously.
If you're good to your body, your body's good to you.
I don't know about anyone else, but if I had problems or issues maybe I wouldn't feel as comfortable talking about them in a group.
I think my faith is important. Being young as well, sometimes it's difficult, but I've got a good family behind me as well.
