England produces strategy to end trophy drought

England produces strategy to end trophy drought

England's Football Association has unveiled a strategy to produce better players to prevent a repeat of the national team's dismal showing at the 2010 World Cup.
England, which was outclassed by Germany during its second-round loss in South Africa, has not won a major title since the 1966 World Cup.
Trevor Brooking, the FA's director of development, believes his 25-point plan of action should help end that title drought, although he has urged fans to be patient and not expect instant success.
Brooking's proposals, which were published Friday, are centered around improving the technical ability of players from the age of 5 to 16 and putting a stronger coaching system in place throughout the country.
