On this topic, Neville He said that “life is going to change. Things will be different. The trees could have been bigger (around the training ground). Security may need to be tightened. The path the players take to that stadium today may have to be different. The journey may be different. The hotels we stay at may have to be different. But really that may be what we aspire to be anyway. It’s exciting, but I think it would be a big challenge.”.
