Rico Henry is chomping at the bit to get going for Brentford this season after injury curtailed his first season at the club and ruled him out of England U20's successful World Cup team.
The left back had an impressive first campaign at Griffin Park before his injury and has impressed in pre-season, seemingly establishing himself as the club's first choice in that position ahead of Tom Field.
And he is excited about the prospect of starting the season at Sheffield United next Saturday.
He said: “It's better now. I've been training with the lads so it's good. It was frustrating to miss out at the end of the season and England. I'm back now and hopefully ready to go again next season.”
Brentford will go into the game with Sheffield United full of confidence after their pre-season campaign but the Blades will be a tough test after comfortably winning League One last term.
“Every team in the Championship is a hard game. We need to be ready for that,” Henry added.
“It was good playing Celta Vigo because they're good. It's a good learning experience and we're ready for next week.
“Training has been good. We've been working on pressing. It helps us a lot and we beat Celta Vigo. If we can train this week how we've been training we'll be ready for it.”
