Re: World Cup 2018Dec 3rd, 2017
And now that the English footballing academy St George's Park is now up and running, England is producing better footballers than any other country in Europe, if not the world, as is evidenced that, in 2017 alone (in chronological order):
England reached the final of the Under-17 Euro 2017 (lost 4-1 to Spain on penalties after drawing 2-2);
Won the Under-20 Toulon Tournament (beat Ivory Coast 5-3 on penalties in the Final after drawing 1-1);
Won the Under-20 World Cup (beat Venezuela 1-0 in the Final);
Reached the Semi-Finals (last four) of the Under-21 Euro 2017 (lost 4-3 on penalties to Germany after a 2-2 draw);
Won the Under-19 Euro 2017 (beat Portugal 2-1 in the Final);
and, last but not least, won the Under-17 World Cup (beating Spain 5-2 in the Final after being 2-0 down).
With these world-beating youngsters coming through, the senior side stands to dominate the world.
