Redknapp questions England commitment

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has pointed the finger at a lack of commitment on behalf of the players as the reason behind England’s struggles, ESPN has reported.

The Three Lions laboured to a 1-0 win over Norway on Wednesday night, their first outing since the World Cup - at which Roy Hodgson’s side failed to win a game and exited at the group stage.


Writing in his column in a national newspaper, Redknapp suggested England’s prospects would improve if the players cared more about the national team. “Here we go again, a few months after a disastrous World Cup: yet another massive letdown for everyone,” he added.


“It is disappointment after disappointment. Half the players don't give a toss. The fans can't be bothered to watch them,” Redknapp continued. “Managers of the Premier League clubs take an interest just to see if their players are going to come back injured from international duty.


“I don't blame the supporters for not being interested in England at the moment. Why should they be? We were told this is the start of a new era. Trust me, I hope so, I really do, but I'm not holding my breath because it will only get harder for England with the way things are in club football.


“And what possible value is there in a total non-event against the worst Norway team we have seen for years when the supporters are still sore from the World Cup shambles?”


Redknapp was a candidate for the manager’s post when Fabio Capello resigned in 2012 but the Football Association plumped for Hodgson, who was then in charge of West Bromwich Albion.


QPR, meanwhile, have lost two of their first three league games, with defeats at home to Hull City and away at Redknapp’s old club Tottenham Hotspur before a Loftus Road triumph against Sunderland prior to the international break.
