7 DAYS TO GO: England To Rule The World after 1990 – THE SUN

The countdown to the World Cup is on, with it 7 days away now. Time to reflect on some quotes that have made the World Cup what it is..... via

England To Rule The World – THE SUN

When England were eliminated on penalties by West Germany in the semi-final of Italia ’90, The Sun newspaper was so enthusiastic about the country’s future that they boldly printed the following:

“Around Gazza [Paul Gascoigne] and his young gang we can build a team to rule the world. Four years on, remember you read it first in the Sun!”

England failed to qualify for USA ‘94, and not a single one of the 23-man squad from Italia ’90 would play in another World Cup.
