Former Manchester United legend, and current Ipswich boss Roy Keane, is scathing in his assessment of the underachieving England squad. The Three Lions came into the World Cup as one of the favourites but were sent crashing home by Germany after a dismal 4-1 second round defeat on Sunday.
"To keep criticising the manager is crazy. Capello is a brilliant manager," Keane told Sky Sports News.
"The players have to look at themselves. They get away with murder.
"You say that the players are good individuals in the Premier League, but tell me who they are?
"I think Wayne Rooney had a brilliant season. You look at the goalkeepers, I thought David James at Portsmouth, they didn't have a good season and the other one, Green, at West Ham [United] they just about stayed up.
"Chelsea won the double but that was down to some world class attacking players. Upson, who played yesterday, West Ham didn't have a great season.
"You keep talking about these world class players, and they're not. Wayne has the best chance but he still hasn't done it on the world stage."
