Redmond disagrees, however, after being involved in an England Under-21 squad top-loaded with flair and creative players.
“There has been a lot of talk recently about how we don’t have players for the future, but just look at this Under-21 squad and the Under-20s below us.
“Ravel (Morrison), (Nathaniel) Chalobah, Harry Kane, Saido (Berahino), Tom (Ince), (Raheem) Sterling, (Wilfried) Zaha – you go through the names and think ‘wow, that’s a good team’.
“I’ve been playing in some five-a-side matches with these guys and it’s to see these sort of players all trying to out-do one another.
“I think the future looks great for English football.”
