Man Utd captain Neville: Nothing golden about this England generation

Manchester United captain Gary Neville says England's 'golden generation' have failed to live up to the moniker.

In his column for the Sunday Times of Malta, Neville wrote: "The 'golden generation' label has been used to death over the past 10 years. There are a lot of new players in the squad now added to the remnants of the so-called 'golden generation' players.

"To be honest, the 'golden generation' wasn't very golden from where I was sat in the England squad.

"We didn't win any tournaments or do ourselves justice. You get called a golden generation when you win things."
