“2014, in Liège against Belgium, my national team debut. I thought my career was over after I broke my kneecap, but luckily I’m still here. It’s an honour to play for the national team, I have taken every opportunity to do so. The coach has always believed in me, he guaranteed my place even whilst I was recovering from the injury, and so I’m happy to be part of the team today. It’s a dream.” Those were the words of Trent Sainsbury, who is set to feature on Inter Channel‘s Caffè Doppio.

“The victory in the Asian Cup was a very important moment in my career – something which created a strong bond between us, something really special to tell the grandchildren. My Dutch coach at the time watched a programme with a kangaroo called Skippy, and this was the inspiration behind my celebration. They asked me to do it again in China, and so I continued.

“I’m always trying to be professional. Since I arrived here, my goal has been to collect minutes on the field and that’s still my aim. I’m trying to show what I can do in every training session. I came here to work hard and see what happens.”
