It may seem like just another match to football fans around the world, but the opportunity for Daniel Sturridge, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and the rest of the English national team to don their country's jersey is a dream realized. We're just about one year out from Brazil's time in the World Cup limelight and the competition is reaching a fever pitch, which is just the right time for Nike Soccer to slip in and present a new series of films that go behind the scenes with players from the English football squad. The first premier episode follows two of the newer stars to join the roster as they prepare for and play the Republic of Ireland and Brazil, mixed in with interviews about both players' chance to realize a childhood dreams, their time under manager Roy Hodgson, and the time left ahead of the World Cup. You can watch the first clip after the jump, but make sure to keep your eyes peeled for the second part  that follows Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley as they complete the transition from the youth to the senior team.
