England can win the World Cup says the former Chelsea legend and currently Derby County manager Frank Lampard, who registered his believe on Sunday saying that the three lions performance so far in the on going FIFA world cup in Russia has been the best so far, penetrating every defense.

So far so good, the Three Lions of England are currently topping the group G with goal difference after beating Panama 6 – 1 on Sunday  to top Belgium who were on top before.

Although both countries have 6 points each and will be meeting on Thursday 28th as they play their final group G game and whoever wins tops the group G.

England so far has been very good in defense, midfield and with the best striking force so far in the ongoing 2018 Russia FIFA World Cup tournament and that is why Frank Lampard was bold enough to belief and defend his country.

 

Meanwhile, according to an interview with  BBC’s World Cup Daily Podcast.  Lampard said

“I think we can go all the way, I genuinely do,”

“I don’t see why we would be negative enough to start going ‘oh we have to get to the quarter finals’

“I think the team have shown in their performances – and this is not me getting ahead of myself – just look at the talent in our squad and the way they’re playing, why should we write ourselves off?

“Yes, the players will focus game by game and day by day, that’s tournament football, that’s what they have to do.

“But ourselves from the outside, we can look in and say ‘this team has a real chance’.

“I think it was one of a multitude of issues in previous years that we analysed everything specific on individuals and ended up creating a lot of arguments around what is a team sport – and we want the best for the team.

“I think huge credit to Gareth Southgate there that he’s been so fluid with the system, he’s changed the philosophy of the team over the last two years to the way they’re playing.

“We’ve got so many more options when we’re on the ball now because we’re not playing a very basic 4-4-2, which we played for many a year.

“So we can come into tournament football and feel like we can get a lot of possession in midfield which is key.

“Gareth’s made all these moves that make us talk more now about the team rather than ‘this position’ and ‘that position’.”

Now successfully qualified for the last 16, England’s next clash against Belgium on Thursday will decide which of the two sides finishes at the head of Group G.
