What does England need to win the World Cup? Dennis Wise and Frank Lampard, it seems

You know who knows exactly how to win a World Cup for England? Some guys never get close, these are…

Not such wise words
So why didn’t England win the World Cup? Some might say England were unlucky in their quarter-final encounter with France, beating eventual World Cup holders and eventual runners-up and coming within a missed penalty to force extra time. But Tony Adams has other ideas and he’s been paid quite well the sun to adopt these ideas. And his thoughts are almost as sharp as his dancing.

“England must stop being good losers…they need a chronic Dennis Wise there to finish off the opposition”

Because of course Dennis Wise won the famous World Cup.

Alternatively, Denis Wise was left out of the England squad that reached the semi-finals of Euro 96 and was a key part of England’s all-time winning squad at Euro 2000.

It’s simply a silly idea. Teams don’t win the World Cup because they have a midfielder who is “there to eliminate the opposition”; They win because they have a great, well-balanced lineup.

“Okay England, what are we going to do now?

“Are we going to take it to the next level and win Euro 2024 and have a serious challenge for the 2026 World Cup?”

England certainly have a chance of winning Euro 2024, but World Cup runners-up France should be the favourites, while hosts Germany will be the contenders. The idea that anything short of winning a major championship is a failure is absurd.

Especially when that idea comes from Adams, the guy who played a major role in England and didn’t even make it to the World Cup in 1994. And when he did actually make it to the major leagues, he won only four of the 13 matches he played.

And the he is Will he tell us what problems England have now been in the quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals over the past five years?

“Now we are in the top eight but we are not winning subjects. We have to change the mentality.

“We have talented players who can match some of the best but we have to change our mindset.

“Argentina didn’t win the World Cup with the best team but boy did they have the right attitude.”

Did they have the “right attitude” when they lost their opening match to Saudi Arabia?

Some would say that having the greatest footballer of all time might have been a factor, but no… it’s all about attitude. Because it is based on such vague concepts that old football players have.

“We did France in the quarter-finals of the World Cup because they knew how to do the job.”

Well, also because Harry Kane missed a penalty.

But most importantly, Adams would like a job, thank you…

“Like a lot of countries we still lack defensively. A good defensive coach can’t make mistakes.

I don’t want to sound like a broken record but for now Gareth Southgate is staying, I repeat my advice that he should contact one or two older experienced bosses for advice from time to time.

“He doesn’t have to make it public, but it will help him.”

And who can relate to the experience of winning international trophies, Tony? Because you definitely do not fit these criteria. Nor does any England player of your generation. Indeed, Southgate himself came just as close as Adams to winning an international tournament as a player.

“I’d like to see us a little ‘Dennis Wise.'” Wisey used to shake opponents’ hands, scrape them with his fingernails and tap their feet as he did.

Dennis Wise was a serial killer who was sentenced to prison for assaulting a taxi driver. If that’s the kind of attitude England lacks, we’ll have defeats in the quarter-finals and semi-finals, thanks.

I do not want us to embrace the opponents in the tunnel and laugh with them and joke with them. I want us to hate them and make it as uncomfortable for them as possible.

We need a feature going forward. We need more aggression.

Or we need to not miss the penalty shootout, Tony. This seems more important than the anachronistic notion of ‘aggression’ that got you and your England teammates pretty much nowhere, particularly at Euro 2000 when a midfield of solid players Paul Ince and Wise (and David Beckham and Paul Scholes) lost 3-2 to the Roman side, who didn’t seem bothered from a distance.

Everyone talks like Jimmy
Another former England international who was part of the same generation as Adams is Jamie Redknapp, whose experience in the entire tournament was less than 45 minutes from Euro 96. Yet he claims that this England team should win major slams.

he is It was on Sky Sports saying it this way:

“When I look at France and Argentina in the World Cup final, you think it could have been us. Argentina are a very good team but they are not out of this world. Lionel Messi gave them a point of difference and he was the reason they won.

“If you look at the French national team, it was one of the weakest France teams we’ve seen. When I played for them in 1998, they had Zinedine Zidane, Emmanuel Petit, Patrick Vieira and Didier Deschamps as their captains – those were players who could turn the game around.

“France didn’t have Karim Benzema, they didn’t have N’Golo Kante. They had Kylian Mbappe who gave them the X-factor.”

They also had Antoine Griezmann, Aurelien Tchoameni and many other players who won the World Cup four years ago. And as Redknapp mentioned, he is probably the best young footballer in the world. The fourth played fifth in the world and the fourth – as you might expect – narrowly won.

Redknapp was already part of the England squad that faced France in 1999 (not 1998) but what he didn’t mention in his appeal to the star-studded France squad was the England XI, which included David Seaman, Tony Adams and Paul Ince. David Beckham, Alan Shearer and Michael Owen. They were hardly malice.

According to the BBC game report”The midfield was exaggerated in an embarrassing way.” That would be you, Redknapp. However, now you are somehow in a position to say that this modern England national team should have done better.

“We’ve got great young players and we’ve come close, but that’s where the frustration lies. I look at the two teams that made it to the final, we’re just as good as they are.”

What I just described are the vagaries of knockout competition. This seemed to come as a surprise to many England pundits but there can only be one winner per cup. You can’t play with the Carabao Cup.

“Any young English coach in the Premier League, who deserves all this hope, would have taken England to the quarter-finals, when you look at the teams we’ve played.”

Even your cousin, Jimmy? Is that what we got here?

Of course, it’s all frustrating because a lot of England teams haven’t made it to the quarter-finals of major tournaments, and certainly not to the quarter-finals of at least three consecutive tournaments.

“If you look at the candidates now, you’ll see Graham Potter at Chelsea, Eddie Howe doing a great job at Newcastle. Frank Lampard, who has a great history playing for England, is at Everton. It didn’t work out for Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa, but none of the Those could have done as well as Southgate.”

Oh, this I was What we got. Redknapp’s cousin and friend Gerrard Lampard could do as well as the actual England coach who has been the most successful since England won the World Cup in 1966.

Because of course it would have generated the kind of atmosphere that has made England one of the most consistent teams in international football over the past five years after their lowest ebbs at Euro 2016. Of course they will.

After all, Lampard ‘has a fantastic history playing for England’ and what more do you need? Apart from Dennis Wise, that is.
