Although it has taken England time to win the World cup again, the team is currently showing signs that they can pull a dramatic win of the same in the near future if the current generation of players could be kept growing in the field.
The last time the team carried the world cup trophy was more than half a decade ago-1966 to be precise and that’s quite a time but the young generation seemto be telling some story.
In them meanwhile, England captain Harry Kane was among those to receive honours from the Duke of Cambridge at Buckingham Palace.
The 25-year-old Tottenham striker was awarded an MBE for services to football and in recognition of England’s semi-final run at the 2018 World Cup in the Queen’s 2019 New Year Honours list.
Kane notched six goals in Russia as Gareth Southgate’s men reached the last four of football’s showpiece tournament.
They were knocked out by Croatia, who won 2-1 in extra time, but Kane and his England teammates were credited with bringing the country together during their efforts.
Kane has picked up where he left off this season, scoring 17 Premier League goals for Tottenham as they fight for both domestic and European glory.
The Spurs star received his honour alongside the former editor-in-chief of Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan Joanna Coles and MasterChef winner and restaurateur Thomasina Miers.
Ms Coles, who was chief content officer for Hearst Magazines, which publishes Cosmopolitan, Elle, Esquire, Marie Claire and Country Living, was presented with an OBE for services to journalism and the media industry.
Ms Miers, co-founder of Mexican street food chain Wahaca and winner of the 2005 series of the BBC’s MasterChef, received her OBE for services to the food industry.
London Imam Mohamed Mamoud who was acclaimed for calming fellow Muslims to prevent retaliation against far-right terrorist killer Darren Osborne after the Finsbury Park attack in June 2017 – received an OBE for services to the community in London.
Vera Schaufled, who came to England aged nine in the Kindertransport in 1939 following the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia, received an MBE for services to Holocaust education.
