Man City chief Vieira: England lack pure talent

Manchester City coaching chief Patrick Vieira says England's players are over-rated.

Vieira, the coach for City's elite development squad, suggested that "a lack of pure talent" was the primary reason for England's worst World Cup performance in 56 years.

"For all the people who love England and love English football like I do, it was very disappointing," said the French World Cup winner.

"The problem is more in the grassroots than in the club teams. I think it's a lack of pure talent."
