Against Brazil we were in business’ – Heskey on England’s golden generation, Liverpool and being underappreciated

The striker's career spanned more than 800 matches over 22 years and he is remembered fondly at Liverpool where he won a treble in 2001 Emile Heskey has a confession to make. “I always preferred athletics to football,” says the former England striker. “When I was younger, that was what I cared about. Football was secondary.” He was good as well. He represented his district as a sprinter, and shone as a long jumper too.

Heskey was nine years old when he was spotted playing for his school, and invited for a trial at Leicester’s Centre of Excellence. The die had been cast “Football gradually took over,” he tells Goal. “Athletics is more seasonal, isn...
