Shilton: Spurs dip could help England

Published Add your comment

Peter Shilton feels England could reap the benefits from Tottenham's decline by being able to announce Harry Redknapp as national manager sooner rather than later - if chosen as Fabio Capello's successor.

Shilton, England's most capped player, understands the Football Association's delay because of the club-versus-country conundrum, although he thinks it is not beneficial ahead of Euro 2012. But the former Nottingham Forest goalkeeper can see that stance altering if it becomes apparent Spurs are going to fail in their bid to qualify for the Champions League.

Shilton, who was speaking at the Commerical Vehicle Show where he was representing Vauxhall, said: "There is this situation where Harry might be going for the Champions League spot and so he wants to be loyal to the club. But maybe the fact Spurs have had a dip in form could be a blessing for England."
