England won't win World Cup: Scholes

Published: 01 December, 2013 03:06 IST | Goal.com |

Former Man United midfielder Paul Scholes says England have no chance of winning the World Cup in Brazil next summer.

Roy Hodgson’s men finished top of World Cup qualifying Group H to book their passage into next year’s tournament but Scholes, who made 66 appearances for England before retiring from international duty in 2004, said: “It will be very difficult (for England) to win.

You have to get past Brazil, Argentina, Spain, Italy, Germany. I always get the feeling that whenever England comes up against big nations like those, it is usually a signal that we are going to go out. They’re OK against the Polands and Ukraines.”
