Football in England

England national football team
England has several famous football players and a strong national football team. This national team was formed at the same time as Scotland, which has a very long history. However, it took a long time until 1950 to compete in a World Cup.
In 1960 the World Cup was first hosted in this country, and after 6 years they got their first World Cup. At the 2010 World Cup itself, England had draws in their 2 opening games, leading to questions about the team's spirit, tactics, and ability to handle pressure.
At the same time, this old team has created several famous football players, such as David Beckham, Peter Shilton, and Bobby Moore. Especially, David Beckham is well known by so many young people.
However, the national team has often been criticized for its lack of innovation and bad technical skills. I think they really should improve that kind of problem and achieve more success.
