Manchester United and England centre-back Rio Ferdinand has picked out four youngsters to star for the Three Lions at World Cup 2018, which he hopes will be in England.
“It would be extra special to have a World Cup here and I believe it would have a huge impact on England players,” said Ferdinand 50 days before FIFA votes on the tournament hosts.
“I’m thinking about both the youngsters who could play in the tournament in eight years, and the kids that will watch it and be inspired to play the game.
“We’ve got some talented youngsters, the likes of Chelsea’s Josh McEachran, Ross Barkley at Everton, Ezekial Fryers in our youth ranks at United and John Bostock with Spurs.
“What a motivation it could be for every young player to have the chance to represent your country at a World Cup on home soil.
“The impact would reach far deeper in our game, inspiring people at all levels to get more involved in football, whether that be playing, coaching or watching.” (IMScouting)
On the back of a poor England performance, current captain Rio Ferdinand has put forward four players who may be able to take over from the current crop of English talent in just a few years time.
The England team in 2018 is unlikely to feature many of the squad’s current stars, and the country has a lot to look forward to in terms of up and coming talent.
Will they be able to live up to their potential though? Are there any other young players that could be good enough to play for England in a few years time?
