ENGLAND QUIETLY SHELVE TARGET OF WINNING 2022 WORLD CUP AND SOME OTHER MATCHES
“Just when you think it can’t get any worse Michail Antonio trips over his own feet” says FA Chairman
ENGLAND’S TARGET OF WINNING the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and lots of other matches in the build-up has been scrapped by new Football Association chairman Greg Clarke. The goal which was set by predecessor Greg Dyke in 2013 has been ruled as “unrealistic given the crock of shit we’ve got to work with.”
"I'm not going to put pressure on and say we are going to win this tournament or that tournament," said Clarke, who came into the role in August.
Clarke has also criticised the use of a clock at St George's Park to count down to the 2022 final, calling it "daft".
“It’s not two minutes since we were knocked out of the Euro’s by Iceland for Christ sake,” added Clarke, “We’ve still got Raheem Sterling in the team and just when you think it can’t get any worse Michail Antonio comes bustling over the hill tripping over his own feet. I don’t mean to be a doom monger but we’ve got no chance.”
Roy Hodgson resigned as manager immediately after the shock defeat in July and has been replaced by Sam Allardyce, who oversaw a 1-0 win in the opening World Cup 2018 qualifier in Slovakia on Sunday.
