Video: Tom on tour

Most memorable tour? Probably my first American tour [in 2010]. I scored against the US All-Stars and that was a great moment for me.

Favourite city you’ve visited? Chicago.

Favourite tour game? The All-Stars match.

Most memorable reception from fans? We’ve done a few open training sessions where the atmosphere was as lively as a proper match! They are unreal. Probably the best reception was in a one-off game we played in Nigeria. The fans were crazy out there.

Favourite sightseeing trip? Sometimes you get an afternoon off here and there and we had a day in New York shopping and I went for a walk around Chicago. Myself, Welbeck, John O’Shea and Wes Brown got on the back of a horse and carriage and had a tour of Chicago, which was nice.

Toughest thing about being on tour? You’re away from home for quite a long time, although I’ve never really suffered from homesickness or anything like that. The toughest thing is perhaps some of the double training sessions we do. It can be hard physically.
