"Of course I won't let the opportunity of being at a World Cup pass me by".
On July 8, 2014, the Brazilian nation was dreaming of lifting their sixth World Cup title, but suffered their worst defeat in history.
Rose, who will be competing at his first World Cup, revealed his family were heartbroken, but believes it is in everybody's best interests for them to stay away.
"With quite a few of those clubs, there has been a lot of change of ownership and they just need some stability to build".
There are several listings which don't really add up though as Ruben Loftus-Cheek is said to have lost a whopping three stone since last month, when he himself claimed that he weighed 14 stone.
Experts from Commerzbank have reportedly analyzed historical sports data over years, including home bias and the number of goals scored in previous World Cups, world rankings, and track record at previous tournaments. He's more than capable in that role.
During that time Rose went through a catalogue of personal heartache that left him diagnosed with depression, put on medication and wondering if he would ever be the same again. We said: 'What if somebody doesn't want the attention?
"And yeah, I'm there!"
"It all stemmed from my injury in January previous year, when I was advised I didn't need an operation".
"I don't want to be worrying when I'm trying to prepare for games for my family's safety".
"In an idealistic world people would say to walk off the pitch but that means we would be thrown out of the tournament which many people would agree with", said Southgate. They would also be the first global football team to retain the title in more than half a century.
"I'm not anxious for myself", Rose said.
"We'll be ready fitness-wise for sure", he added.
That positive approach will be appreciated by Southgate who has made a conscious effort to create less hype and tension around the England side than at previous tournaments.
