Mil­ner: World Cup dis­as­ter will drive us on!

Midweek Sport - - SPORT - By IAN WIN­ROW

JAMES MIL­NER in­sists Eng­land’s World Cup hu­mil­i­a­tion will be the cat­a­lyst for Euro 2016 GLORY.

The Manch­ester City mid­fielder ad­mits the scars of this sum­mer’s dis­as­ter in Brazil will never heal.

But he is con­vinced the pain of fail­ure in South Amer­ica can pro­vide a spring­board for suc­cess in France in two years’ time.

“You don’t for­get about the World Cup, it’s al­ways there,” said Mil­ner.

“We haven’t for­got­ten about it. But you al­ways try to move for­ward. We’ve had a cou­ple of good re­sults and now we have to build on them.”

Roy Hodg­son’s side face San Marino at Wem­b­ley to­mor­row when they will at­tempt to build on the im­pres­sive vic­tory in Switzer­land.

And on Sun­day they will go to Es­to­nia when three more points will en­sure they take an early grip on Group E. LAL­LANA READY TO GO GOAL CRAZY: P62-63
