Premiership power stifles England progress

Originally posted on @england England’s abject failure in this summer’s World Cup finals has seemingly failed to jolt the Football Association into any meaningful action to improve the International set-up. England’s 1966 World Cup win now serves merely as a painful reminder as to how long it has been since they truly ruled world football. The nations expectations...

Wayne Rooney gets red card for kick, will be suspended

WATCH: Wayne Rooney missed badly on corner kick

England’s Wayne Rooney has scored plenty of wonderful goals throughout his career. But during Saturday’s Italy-England match, he had a moment that can be best described as ‘embarrassing.’ In the 77th minute, he attempted a corner kick. He blasted it roughly 10 yards above the goal.
