Bobby Charlton fears England will never be dominant again

The legendary English footballer Bobby Charlton fears his country will never again be a dominant force in international football.

Charlton was a key member of the England team that triumphed at the 1966 World Cup on home soil and remains his country's all-time leading scorer with 49 goals.

But England have reached the semi-finals of the World Cup just once since 1966, and Charlton believes the main problem is that there are too many foreign players taking up spaces in the English game.
