NEW YORK (WFAN) — Victor Cruz says he’s very much looking forward to playing in London on Sunday.
“I’m excited for it personally, just to have that experience and be able to tell your children, ‘Hey, I played a game in London. I played a football game in London.’ And not a lot of people can say that,” the Giants wide receiver told WFAN’s Mike Francesa on Tuesday. “And it’s an amazing thing.
“I’m excited to go out there. Most importantly, we’ve got to go out there and win the ballgame.”
Cruz said he went to London over the summer to help promote the game. He said he was surprised that he was recognized around town.
“I’m in the restaurant and people are walking up to me, and they know me, and they’re acclimated to football, and they’re learning more and more about it,” he said.
It will be the Giants’ second time playing in London, but Cruz’s first. In 2007, Big Blue beat the Dolphins 13-10 at Wembley Stadium.
