The FA unveils plan to change England team's DNA

The FA hopes to create a "golden thread" of joined-up thinking along the pathway taking players from under-15 to men's under-21 or women's under-23 level, with a view to eventual success for the seniors.

The plan focuses on five key aspects: pride in representing England in a "comprehensive and varied" schedule of games at different age levels, playing with a particular philosophy, the skills and attributes the "future England player" should have, plus the coaching and support to go with all that.

Is this England about to start the journey Spain and Germany did in 2004 after the Euros?
