Pompey winger Marcus Harness selects some of his bests and worsts...

What's the best goal you've ever scored?
I’ll have to go with the last one I scored for Burton, which was in a friendly against Sheffield United – I just chopped back on my right and smashed it. I got two or three from outside the area last season.

What is the best thing about being a footballer?
It’s probably just getting to do something you love every single day.

Who is the best player you have appeared alongside?
That’s a difficult one – it’s tough to miss people out! I’ll go for Stephen Quinn – he was unreal and makes it easier for you by getting the whole team playing.

Who is the toughest player you have come up against?
David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne in the cup last season. It’s a joke facing players like that and scary just how good they are.

What is the best thing currently on television?
I don’t watch too much TV. It’s just finished, but I’ll go for Love Island.

What's the worst game you have been involved in?
It’s probably the Manchester City game, when Burton got smashed 9-0. I suppose it’s got to be that one.

What is the worst thing about being a footballer?
Getting back up to full fitness in pre-season. It’s much better once the proper games get started.

Who is the worst dressed player in the Pompey dressing room?
I’m going to dodge that one!

What is the worst food to eat?
I’m trying to think of something that I don’t like! My mind’s gone blank, but I’ll just go for quiche.

What is the worst thing that is currently on television?
As I said, I really don’t watch a lot of TV, so I’m not sure I can answer that one.
