England have as much chance of making the World Cup final as I have of spending a night with Scarlett Johansson.
But if England are to ever again seriously compete in a European Championships or a future World Cup, it’s time to see if a younger side can bond together and – as was the case with the Boys of ’66 -and play with pride for their country.
