Sears: an unbelievable year

Hammers striker Freddie Sears has been talking about his 'unbelievable' year ahead of the forthcoming under-19 European Championships.

Sears - who will be on duty in the Czech Republic along with fellow Hammer James Tomkins when England's campaign kicks off on July 14th - has become a household name since scoring on his first team debut against Blackburn last season.

The young Hammer admitted that it has been something of a whirlwind, but told thefa.com he can't wait to get playing again.

"Itís been unbelievable what has happened," he said. "To come into the team at West Ham and score a goal and then start playing a few games.

"I didnít really see it happening at the start of the season when I broke my ankle, but it was a great way to end the season so itís a shame that itís ended.

"[Alan Curbishley] spoke to me and [James] Tomkins and said Ďgo away with England and do your best and then come back and be ready for the start of the season'.

"But with the finals, itís like a way to end the season off and then start the new one really."

Sears is expected to front England's attack in the Czech Republic, and will be hoping to continue the good form that saw him score a vital brace against Poland in the Elite Round qualifiers in May.
