Adam Johnson described his goal in England's 4-0 win over Bulgaria on Saturday as the highlight of his career. His goal was England's third, and although the Three Lions were well on course for victory it did ensure there would be no nervy finish. "It was massive for me on Friday, scoring my first goal in my first competitive game. The goal on Friday was the highlight of my career," he said. "As a kid you dream about scoring at Wembley for England: I just hope there are a few more. Coming on and getting the third goal was massive for me. I will just keep trying to do well for my club and force my way in. "I don't mind having the pressure of performance. That brings me on more. I just want to do what I have being doing for my club. Pressure makes me play better." Johnson, 23, was elevated into the thoughts of England coach Fabio Capello after signing for Manchester City in January's transfer window. He was part of the 30-man Three Lions squad that took part in a training camp ahead of the World Cup finals, but did not make the tournament squad.
