No better chance
England boss Gareth Southgate has admitted that this year could be the best chance for the nation to win a World Cup for many years to come.
The Three lions have been one of the most impressive nations so far but they were almost knocked out of the tournament against Colombia.
They needed to win a penalty shootout for the first time in their World Cup history to seal a spot in the quarter-final and face Sweden.
Should they win that game, they would face one of Russia or Croatia before facing one of several big teams in the final.
Though, the route to the final has never been so fortunate and it could be the best chance for England to win the World Cup for many years.
Now, England boss Gareth Southgate has admitted that seems to be the case and they will need to keep that in mind going forward.
‘Although our team will be individually better in two years with more life experience, maybe the cards on injuries and things won’t fall as kindly and we won’t get this opportunity again,’ Southgate explained, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
‘I’m a long way from perfect. I think it’s dangerous territory if I start to get carried away with things but I am proud of the way the team is playing.
‘It’s a huge privilege to be able to send everybody to work happy, to be able to make a difference to people lives.
‘Football can bring connection through a country and I’m delighted we are exciting people, bringing enjoyment and we want to keep it going.’
