The kids are alright

Really looking forward to today’s Euro semi final. I really think the Under 20’s World Cup win has changed something- not just in the corridors of St Georges Park (now teams are expected to win for England not just qualify and show up), but in the country at large. People now want to see English players in the premiership, they want to see if Dom Solanke gets a game for Liverpool and how Tammy Abraham gets on at Swansea.

Don’t get me wrong I’m not some Ron Manager figure trying to blame foreigners for the ills of English football- the imports have done amazing things for our football but now I think people want to see our young World Cup winners playing alongside established stars next season, it’ll be great to see John Stones lining up next to Dani Alves for Citeh and Lewis Baker starting attacks for Eden Hazard.
