"I think - I hope - that Wayne has one more World Cup finals left in him after next summer’s European Championship," he wrote.

"I would not like him to end his international career as so many of us have done. That is to say, with a shelf full of winners’ medals from our club careers and just a cupboard full of caps – and plenty of regret – from our days with England. "
