The World Cup in Russia begins on Thursday as the hosts take on Saudi Arabia in Moscow and excitement is reaching fever pitch amongst football fans all around the globe. England fans will be dreaming of winning just their second World Cup, and their first since 1966, but expectations are certainly lower this time around than in previous years. Fans appear more willing to give Gareth Southgate’s young England side time to build and improve.
There have been impressive wins at youth level for England, with the U21 side winning their third straight Toulon Tournament last weekend as well as tournament victories at U19 and U17 level. It certainly feels as though England are planning for the long term and with the likes of young exciting players such as Marcus Rashford, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Dele Alli already in the current England squad, the Three Lions appear well set heading forward.
That by no means that England fans aren’t dreaming of a potential World Cup win though and with England boasting, arguably, the best centre forward in world football with Harry Kane, you never know what could happen. England certainly have talented players in their squad, but with a real lack of tournament experience as well as the poor performances at World Cup 2014 as well as EURO 2016, no-one is getting carried away. If England reach the quarter final stage, they will have succeeded for many people, and that could well be the best they can hope for.
