Wiltshire will end up with "Sir" in front of his name and add a second star to England's jersey in the next 10-14 years
Isn't Wales just a pile of coal? Kinda like our West Virginia or Eastern Kentucky?
Then again, like Horvie's wife/gf tells him on nightly basis, size doesn't matter. Take Uruguay has less population then the City of Los Angeles (or better yet less then 50% of the London area).
It all comes down to youth coaching, Uruguay have more certified soccer coaches then all of England. And this is not just a soccer thing. Sweden, which traditionally performs at or above the US in U-whatever international hockey tourneys - has more certified youth coaches then the us.
