Eric Cantona Thinks Everyone Can Win A World Cup
Soak up that photo for a moment. The man can’t be stopped, and neither can his drooping blouse.
Two bold claims from Planet Eric this week:
i. The US will win a World Cup within the next 20 years. (So one of the next five.)
ii. The Catalonia national team could win a World Cup.
Alright – very bold claims.
Referring to America, he says:
“Football in that country is just starting,” he said. “I’ve seen nine-year-old players who are mini geniuses and so with all the coaches and input being done, that country will win a World Cup within the next 20 years.
“Like Cruyff at Barcelona we are training them in a certain way, to love football — and teaching them to win of course. There’s a lot of work to be done. If the US team got to a quarter-final or semi-final we’d be very proud.
“This is what Barcelona did. I think a Catalan team could win a World Cup.”
Marca then set about matching them up on paper.
That’s a touch weak at the top to be winning a World Cup, one would think, without that Maradona or Messi-esque individual brilliance capable of attacking a trophy all on their own, but the midfield and central defense are dreamy. And get run out on Sundays quite a bit.
