Young Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse has stated his belief that England's current crop of youngsters can win the World Cup in 2022.
Ward-Prowse's comments come after new Football Association chairman Greg Dyke outlined his target for the national side to reach the semi-final of Euro 2020 and win the World Cup in Qatar two years later.
This seems a daunting ask for a national side that hasn't made the semi-final of a major tournament since Euro '96 but the young midfielder remains confident it can be done.
He said: "It keeps us working hard on a daily basis to improve ourselves.
"Hopefully we can push on and I think it is a real possibility.
"You can see the quality that we have. All right, it was only a 1-0, but we have great quality and I think if we stick together as a team we can reach the stars."
England's under-21 side defeated Moldova 1-0 on Thursday night with a goal from West Brom's Saido Berahino, but could and should have scored more.
Ward-Prowse added: "Credit to them because they did some last-ditch defending.
"We should have added a few more and we'll be working on our ruthlessness in training and hopefully get some more goals."
