General rule of thumb is that you'll need 6 or 7 world class players to win the World Cup. England probably have 3. Gerrard, Lampard & Ashley Cole. It's just a shame they're not role models off the pitch.
Ashley Cole, Steve Gerrard, Frank Lampard and David Beckham can all be classed as world class Englishmen over recent times.
and If it wasn't for injurys then Michael Owen would of been a world beater on a more regular basis. Wayne Rooney has shown that he is capable of being one of the greats at European club level but until he pulls his finger out at a World Cup then he isn't top notch in my book.
