Ian Wright outlines his vision for England to win the World Cup
CAN England win under Roy Hodgson? At Euro 2012, the team did as well as Sven Goran Eriksson’s sides ever did (three times in major tournaments), chucking themselves into tackles and running themselves into the ground, as is the custom. But can they improve? Ian Wright outlined his vision to Sun readers:
1. Blame the foreigners:
While no one can knock the quality of entertainment on show every week, we have to realise why that is. And, in my book, it’s because of the huge number of foreign stars lighting it up rather than our own.
2. Bring in the old losers
What boss Roy Hodgson needs to do is bring in the likes of Alan Shearer, Gary Lineker, Chris Waddle, John Barnes and others who have done it at the top end and use that experience and knowledge.
Two failed managers, a man who missed a crucial penalty at the World Cup but who did win the French championship three times whilst being a foreigner, and a clean-shaven BBC worker who sells crisps.
What can go wrong?
