The Ipswich Town legend explains the pride he experienced in captaining England during the 1982 World Cup in Spain and reveals how he felt his chance to play on the biggest stage had passed him by.

Chris Brammer’s in-depth interview with Mills is one of several to feature in the East Anglian Daily Times’ 48-page ‘Rio 2014’ supplement which you can find in tomorrow’s newspaper.

Brammer also talks to Scotland duo George Burley and John Wark about their experiences at the same tournament, plus Matt Holland, who helped Republic of Ireland to the last-16 at World Cup 2002 in Japan and South Korea.

As well as that, chief football reporter Stuart Watson speaks to New Zealand international and current Ipswich Town centre-back Tommy Smith about his time playing in South Africa in the 2010 tournament, while former Blues chairman David Sheepshanks gives us an exclusive insight into the development of England’s future talent at St George’s Park.

There is also a World Cup wallchart containing every fixture, profiles of the forthcoming tournament’s players to watch, with help from our friends at Panini, while EADT editor Terry Hunt and legendary sports reporter Tony Garnett look back at the England tenures of former Ipswich managers Sir Alf Ramsey and Sir Bobby Robson.

Let World Cup fever grip you and enjoy the read!

  • Is it a pre-emptive strike from the EADT gestapo censors to have no comment box on the deeply offensive, risible piece of self-indulgent tosh above from Lord Smugshanks? I suspect the only person in the entire world grateful for the disgraceful sell-out of Ipswich Town (apart from the unknown owners) is Smugshanks himself, who after driving the club to ruin not once but twice, attempting to sell the club to a fantasist and then gifting it to an offshore predator has found himself a gravy train to rival anything a 3rd rate manager might seek out.

  • I didn't think it possible that rancid sheeps bottom could get any more boring but I admit I was wrong.

  • It's a very tenuous link between Ipswich Town FC and the offshore company of no known ownership that uses that name in a tax avoidance scheme. Mind you there is an equally tenuous link between Lancashire lad Smith - and his New Zealand
