Euros are all about results - Cahill

Published Add your comment

Gary Cahill insists England should not be afraid to play backs-against-the-wall football if it gives them a better chance of winning the European Championship.

Cahill was at the heart of Chelsea's rearguard effort that took them past defending European champions Barcelona and then Bayern Munich to Champions League glory. The defender stressed he is excited by England's attacking options, even with Wayne Rooney suspended for two matches. But the ability to win the hard way if necessary is a vital one.

"In this sort of tournament, knock-out football, sometimes you win playing good football and sometimes you win playing backs-to-the-wall football," Cahill told Press Association Sport.
