E162 - World Cup Roundtable: Rio Ferdinand, Peter Crouch & Joe Cole

This week Jake and Damian are hosting a World Cup Special Roundtable with football legends, Rio Ferdinand, Peter Crouch and Joe Cole discussing what it's really like pulling on an England shirt. In this episode they discuss the differences between their generation and the current England team and how the lack of structure and leadership in their tactics and team affected their results. 

Rio, Peter and Joe reflect on the beginning of their careers, discussing the struggle of coming to terms with such an amazing achievement and the pressure that comes along with it. The media portrayed them as the ‘Golden Generation’, they explore what went so wrong and why the label was, ultimately, very damaging. 

The boys express how they feel about the upcoming World Cup and their fundamental trust in Gareth Southgate.
