Emile Smith-Rowe Loves Football

“I watch as much as I can, any game. If there's a game on TV, I'm watching it. Like, I always want to learn. I always like watching it by myself as well, because I don't have to listen to everyone else's opinion. I just like focusing on it, on myself, like in silence, just watching football. It might seem boring, but I love it."
