The Future Looks Bright

It was interesting, last night, to see how Roy Hodgson decided to bring in Michael Carrick instead of Frank Lampard.

It was, as it turns out, an inspired move with Carrick, alongside Steven Gerrard, dominating the midfield battle.

With England safely getting the win that guaranteed them a spot at the 2014 World Cup, in Brazil, Carrick was quick to give the media a few words about what lies ahead for this group of England lads, commenting,

'Going to a World Cup is a massive opportunity for any player and playing for England always comes with added pressure."

'It's just a case of getting used to the criticism and performing to a high standard to achieve success. There is a great strength in the squad with a lot of options. It is just about going and performing really, we expect high things of ourselves.'


But are England good enough to win it?

Unfortunately, I seriously doubt it, I believe our golden age has been and gone and now we have to build for the next one although with our current crop of youngsters coming through, the future does look bright.

Best? Law? Charlton? Ryan Giggs? or even the great Johnny Carey? This "Golden Age" of which you speak is probably further away than you think - re UK football!

The best England have played in a long long time. The Carrick Gerrard partnership in midfield has been the most convincing combination thus far compared to the plethora of combinations tried and failed in the past just a shame it's taken so long for the partnership to be discovered.

Erm lads, it was Poland, that midfield pairing wouldn't stand a chance against the majority of the stronger nations.
