Gerrard talks of 'hysteria' and 'culture of fear' around England team

The Premier League is a 'fraud' that's full of over-hyped and over-paid players, Liverpool legend blasts

The Three Lions suffered the upset of the European Championship on Monday night when they were sent packing by Iceland after a 2-1 defeat in the round of 16.

Iceland move on to play the host France in the quarter-finals on Sunday.

Tottenham and Belgium centre-back Toby Alderweireld believes that a winter break in the Premier League would benefit the England national team.

The loss to Iceland is considered England's worst global defeat since losing 1-0 to the United States at the 1950 World Cup in Brazil. The players are overrated, and the English Premier League is not as strong as it thinks it is. "If you look at Spain, Germany, if you look at the standard of football, the quality of football, it's in a different league to the Premier League".

Time will tell on that front I guess, and I'm not suggesting for a second that people should give up their clubs entirely to drop down and watch non-league more regularly, but it might be a more profitable "Non-League Day" on September 3 this year if nobody can be bothered to watch England that weekend instead. England won the World Cup on home soil in 1966, but have accomplished little on the worldwide stage since.

"I do not accept that the problem with English football is the players are not good enough", Gerrard wrote in a column for the Telegraph. "That is just my own personal opinion, it might not reflect everyone else's", Miller said. They failed to progress from the group stage at three major tournaments, results in qualifying and friendlies, with the team failing to better a 70 per cent win ratio recorded in 2007, and they have struggled to unearth new talent - Russian Federation had the second oldest team at Euro 2016 behind the Republic of Ireland.

So if England's misfiring stars are thinking of using the gruelling domestic season as an excuse for their woeful performance, they might want to think again - it doesn't seem to be affecting other Premier League players. "They knew what was in store as soon as Iceland scored their second goal", he explained. You can not stop yourself.

"Panic sets in. The frustration takes over". "What if we don't get back into this?" You freeze and stop doing those things you know you should be. Maybe it is, but that is what we have got with the England team created by 50 years without winning a major tournament.
