FA Chairman Sets England Performance Goal of Winning 2022 World Cup: Daily Soccer Report

greg dyke FA Chairman Sets England Performance Goal of Winning 2022 World Cup: Daily Soccer Report

FA Chairman Greg Dyke has set a performance goal for the England national team of winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Dyke, who publicly shared his vision today, wants England to reach the semi-finals of Euro 2016 and win the 2022 World Cup tournament in Qatar.

In my opinion, it’s an empty speech. Dyke discussed that he’ll chair a commission to investigate the decline of English players in the Premier League, but all talk and no action isn’t going to change anything. Dyke has an incredibly difficult challenge ahead of him. The easy part is announcing lofty goals of England winning the World Cup. The challenging part is coming up with a solution that will make England footballers more competitive. The Premier League isn’t the problem. The lack of English talent is.

Here are today’s world soccer news headlines:

International soccer

Premier League

La Liga

UEFA Champions League

A-League

Football League

Bundesliga
