Dyke predicts England World Cup glory in 2022

The chairman of the Football Association believes that, if his plans to introduce Premier League B teams are implemented properly, the Three Lions could triumph in Qatar
Football Association chairman Greg Dyke believes that his proposed changes to the league system could help England win the World Cup in 2022.

An FA commission report, released on Thursday, proposed the introduction of a fifth tier of the Football League, to be known as League Three.

The new division would allow Premier League sides to enter B teams in a bid to give young English talent a chance to play regular, competitive football.

The idea behind the reforms is to improve the fortunes of the national side and Dyke argues that the proposals, if enforced, could bring rewards as early as the 2022 finals in Qatar.

"If we change enough, yes, I think we'll win the World Cup in 2022," he told Perform.

"You've got to assume our grassroots facilities aren't good enough and that our coaching needs to be improved.

"We've got proposals for that. There's never going to be [just] one thing that changes English football."
