Robbie Earle: This England side is a dream come true
THIS week marks the 20th anniversary of the death of the great Bobby Moore, England's only World Cup winning captain.
I've put together a select England XI of the players I played against, and I reckon this lot would at least have a chance of bringing the World Cup home in Brazil next year.

The best Premier League keeper of his generation. Peter Schmeichel was a great keeper, but was more erratic.
For example, you could upset Schmeichel by treading on his toes at a corner, but Seaman would just look at you and smile.
The bloke had ice in his veins and was brilliant at one-on-ones.
Came through with that group of exceptional United youngsters in the 1990s and proved himself to be a fine player and an excellent professional.
England still haven't replaced him at right-bac.
An unsung hero who was brilliant in Italia 1990 and has kept players like Marco van Basten quiet.
He had outstanding pace and read the game brilliantly.
It's a close call between Adams and Terry Butcher for that second spot in central defence.
Adams gets the job because he was such a fantastic leader. Even at 19 or 20 when he was breaking into the Arsenal side, he was ordering players about like an old pro.
Just gets in ahead of Stuart Pearce in my team. Over the last few years he is the one England player who could have got into the best teams in the world and improve them.
Went from zero to hero after getting sent off against Argentina in the 1998 World Cup, but then put in that incredible performance against Greece to ensure England qualified for the 2002 finals.
One of my boyhood heroes, Captain Marvel could do it all.
Robson was a terrific footballer, but also an incredible natural athlete with a ferocious desire to win.
It is such a shame to see Gazza has fallen on hard times.
He was just fantastic in Italia 90. I remember talking to his team-mate Des Walker who told me the big stars for Germany and Holland didn't want to go near him because he could make a fool of them.
I played against him later in his career when he was at Middlesbrough. He had lost a bit of his mobility, but was still very hard to play against.
He would throw an elbow across you as you tried to close him down, and bounce off you to go on a run.
He was a phenomenal talent. Kids would watch him and then practice their skills to try to emulate him.
He's too good to leave out so I've shoe-horned him into my team in left-midfield.
His best position would probably be behind the front two, but I've sacrificed him for the sake of my team, which happened to him a lot for England.
A phenomenal goal poacher who could read the game brilliantly in the area and had that overwhelming desire to just get the ball into the net.
Like Walker and Gascoigne, he was good enough to play at a high level abroad and develop his game.
I suppose football fans under-30 know him as Match of The Day host rather than an England legend.
It makes me smile when he's on Match of The Day asking Alan Hansen something about goalscoring.
There aren't may better qualified than Lineker to answer those questions.
I thought about Wayne Rooney and Michael Owen for this spot, but Shearer edges them both.
If I had £1 on an England player to score a penalty or beat the keeper from a one-on-one, then I'd feel my money was safest with Shearer.
Rooney can blow hot and cold for England, but you always felt you could rely on Shearer.
It's a close call between him and Bobby Robson, two managers in the last 25 years who have left the England job with their reputations enhanced.
Venables just gets the job because the players clearly enjoyed playing for him in Euro 96 and he got the best out of them with some smart tactics. Remember the Christmas tree Formation?
