Man Utd legend Robson fears for England future

Former Manchester United and England skipper Bryan Robson fears for the Three Lions.

England are recovering from their worst World Cup in 56 years.

"You need world-class players to compete in major competitions and we haven't got enough at this moment in the squad," said Robson to the Mirror.

"You would hope that some of the young lads come through and prove they are top quality players - the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Raheem Sterling, Ross Barkley and Luke Shaw.

"Now that they're coming into the squad they're getting the chance, but we just have to wait a year, or two years.

"There are others, such as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere, who you have to give time to progress to become top-drawer players.

"Otherwise, if they prove that they are just good players, it will be a disappointment.

"Because of the qualifying group we have for Euro 2016, I think we can go on and progress to the finals again. But as far as going on to win something like that, I still think we're way off."
