Chelsea boss Ancelotti: England should accept World Cup decision

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti says England shouldn't be disappointed over their World Cup snub.

But the Chelsea boss hopes England land the tournament in 2030 - when HE aims to guide Italy to victory at the age of 71.

Ancelotti said: "The English are disappointed, but in 2012, there will be the Olympics in London.

"Maybe, in 2030, it could be in England again. I hope it will be in 2030 because, that year, Italy will win.

"Italy win the World Cup every 24 years - 1982, 2006 and 2030.

"I hope to be the coach for the Italian team that does it."

Ipswich Town boss Roy Keane added: "Apparently England had a good bid but they didn't do it. Get over it, nobody died."
