"I think there is still something missing before we could claim to be a top side.โ€ Graham Taylor. "Obviously. I would love to play for England in the World Cup Finals. โ€œBut I am not even contemplating it at the moment. "It's up to you boys from the media to say what you think. โ€œAll I am concerned about is playing well for Villa." David Platt.
