Scholes: England should play like Liverpool at World Cup

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has urged England manager Roy Hodgson to take inspiration from Premier League runners-up Liverpool at the World Cup, Sky Sports has reported.

There are a number of Liverpool players in Hodgson’s 23-man squad to go to Brazil - captain Steven Gerrard, Daniel Sturridge, Raheem Sterling, Jordan Henderson and Glen Johnson. Scholes wrote in a blog for Paddy Power that he would like to see the Three Lions follow the Reds’ lead and go on the front foot.


“It would be refreshing for England to adopt Liverpool's attacking mentality in Brazil. Really go for it,” the ex-England international said. “That means certainly four, and possibly five, Liverpool players in the England starting XI against Italy on June 14.


“South Africa in 2010 was so negative with boring draws. Nothing seemed to happen. England fans, and myself as an England fan, would rather 3-3 games than dull, 0-0 draws. I'd love to see Roy be brave enough to play like Liverpool (or Man United teams of the past).”


Scholes added that it was Liverpool’s attitude that caught his eye more than anything. “The thing I admired most (about Liverpool) was the swagger of their play and how they terrorised opponents, which reminded me of United at their best.”


Liverpool ended the league campaign two points behind champions Manchester City but scored more than 100 goals - netting 101 times, one fewer than Manuel Pellegrini’s side. But while Liverpool have five players in the England squad, City have only two - goalkeeper Joe Hart and James Milner.
