The German legend Franz Beckanbauer thinks that England have “gone backwards” and are nothing but a “hit and rush” team, and blames it purely on the fact that there are too many foreigners playing in the Premier League, and very few English players get a look-in.
“What I saw from the English in their 1-1 draw against the USA had very little to do with football,’ said Beckenbauer.
“It looked to me as if the English have gone backwards to the bad old times of kick and rush. I am not sure if the England coach Fabio Capello can change much there.
“The English are being punished for the fact that there are very few English players in the Premier League as clubs use better foreign players from all over the world.”
Is he right? Should England introduce a real quota system for people actually born in the country, rather than just spending three years at an academy?
