Former England defender Gary Neville believes the team’s players can afford to take a break before this summer’s World Cup. Speaking on Sky Sports’ Footballers Football Show, the pundit explained that after a long season of club football, the training shouldn’t necessarily be too intense before an international tournament.googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(“div-gpt-ad-1389116196215-0″); });Neville believes that the England players’ natural desire to compete and put in the effort means that a holiday beforehand will not put them too much behind the other countries at the World Cup. I suppose when you fail in the tournament, we always look back and think, ‘was it the right preparation?’ he said. How many days can you give them to rest after a long, hard season without comprimising the preparation for the tournament? As a player you have no idea, you just do what you’re told. For England I think it’s a good idea to rest, because you’ll never have an England squad who are lacking in effort anyway.”
