Joe Hart has the talent and ability to become one of the biggest stars of Euro 2012.
City's brilliant stopper effortlessly transfers his club form on to the international stage and has a massive role to play for his country this summer.
He inspires confidence in his defence and there are few better in the world that the Blues' custodian.
He was named in Fabio Capello’s final 23-man selection for the 2010 World Cup and although he didn’t feature, the experience of being at a major tournament did Hart a power of good.
He was given his first competitive cap in a 4-0 win over Bulgaria in a Euro 2012 qualifier having made his senior bow against Trinidad in a friendly back in 2008.
Four years on, the 25-year-old keeper has won 17 caps to date and is set for a long stay as England's first choice.
Come along and enjoy Euro 2012 at City Square, the only outdoor venue in Manchester showing the England matches. We are kicking off with England’s opening match against France on June 11, with City Square open from 2:30pm.
