And it was his past performances which Lingard turned to for motivation during the nation’s first lockdown last year.

He revealed: “There was a time in lockdown when I just looked back at some old England games, and games that I played well in for United, just to get the fire in my belly again.

“Since coming here I’ve had targets written down on a board and until I hit them, I won’t be fulfilled.”
