Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson believes England have what it takes to be champions at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Recall that the Three Lions were so close to winning the just concluded Euro 2020 title only to lose to Italy via penalties in the final.
However, Henderson insisted that the team can challenge for the World Cup next summer.

“Now this defeat will gnaw us from the inside, but it is necessary to use it as fuel to achieve more.
“The team that we have formed at this tournament is special.
“And soon there will be a world championship in Qatar – we will be able to take revenge.”
U Don start
England will never WIN any titles with Southgate just like Nigeria will never achieve any MEANINGFUL success with. ROHR. Qoute me anywhere. A better tactician would have won that Euro for the 3 Lions. No sane coach worth his salt will keep Rashford, Grealish and Sancho on the bench for a Saka!
Even when he substituted Mount, he deployed Grealish on the left wing and left a clueless Saka in thethe middle of the pack. Saka at best operates on the left orwing right of attack and as a left/wing back.
Southgate just blew another opportunity like he did against Croatia 3 years ago. Italy had 3 slow players in defence; Chiellini, Bonucu and Emerson Palmieri. A better tactician would have deployed the directness of Rashford instead of Saka and Sancho for a clearly tired Sterling with Grealish for Mount to run at those ageing andpopulation slow, Azzuri backline. Instead he set up his team to defend deep with only 2 sitting midfielders. Even at that, why not introduce an extra body in midfield; say a Bellingham for instance to set up in a flat 4-3-3 ala Alegri’s Juve? That way, he would line up with Henderson on the left, Jude on the right and the Leeds man, (whats his name again?) In the centre. This will attempt at suffocating Jorginho-Verrati-Barella midfield dominance.
Give England to a better coach and see them win trophies. This set represents their best shotof at major titles.
