It was our pleasure, as ever, to catch up with football legend Teddy Sheringham ahead of the imminent Euros. Few men have spanned such a long and successful career in the beautiful game.

Admittedly, we are proud that Teddy is an ambassador of Oliver Sweeney; looking just as fit and with barely a wrinkle more than his premier league days, he is also a perfect match for our summer collection.

So we took the opportunity to pick his brains on all things football, while he got to try some of our new range.

Here’s how it all looked and what he had to say...


OS: Which was your favourite game to play in?
Teddy: England v Holland Euro 1996

OS: What was the greatest moment of your career?
Teddy: The Champions League 1999 Manchester United v Bayern Munich. Winning the game in the last 2 minutes. Winning 2-1 and becoming Champions league winners

OS: What was your all time favourite goal?
Teddy: It’s all about winning stuff. I get asked about that goal so often – so the first goal in that Champions League final

OS: Is the pressure on the England team more than other countries?
Teddy: England players will probably say that, but I don’t think it is. I think the scrutiny you get in every country; you only have to look at the Germans, the French, the Spanish, that have all won over the years and are expected to win again. So it’s no different from the English


OS: What would be your starting eleven for the euros?
Teddy: Jordan Henderson, Kyle Walker, Harry Maguire, Ben Chilwell, John Stones, Declan Rice, Mason Mount, Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Harry Kane, Mason Greenwood – on the right

OS: If you could choose anyone, who would be your top Euro player?
Teddy: Without a doubt, Paul Gascoigne

OS: Who is the best young player in the England team?
Teddy: A tough one that is at the moment … Mount and Foden… Foden, just.

OS: Excluding England who has the best chance of winning?
Teddy: There’s going to be a lot of very good teams – getting a little mention from the Italians over there, but I don’t think they’re going to be anywhere near it. Probably the favourites will be the French

OS: Who was your toughest ever opponent?
Teddy: The toughest opponent was probably Cannavaro from Italy; not the biggest, not the quickest, not the strongest, but just his mind was one step ahead of everything – very clever player.
