Marcel Desailly: 'England could be the surprise of the World Cup... Not really'
• Former Chelsea and France defender Marcel Desailly kind of mocks the Three Lions rating England's chances of doing well in Russia
How can England do better at this year’s World Cup?
"They have a good generation of players, and they have a good coach in Gareth Southgate, but what they don’t have is a strong leader who can guide them on the pitch. I expected England to do better at the Euros, but I am not so confident that they are one of the best four or five teams at the World Cup. So hopefully England could be the surprise of the tournament, like Belgium could be."
Do you really think so?
"No. But I hope it will happen, because England have lost so many generations of talented players that it would be nice for you to do well when no one expects it."
