It’s been ages since England won a major tournament and Chelsea captain Gary Cahill claims it is only a matter of time before England win a major tournament.

The Three Lions secured World Cup qualification with a 1-0 win over Slovenia at Wembley on Thursday, and the Chelsea captain is hopeful of a positive outing.

The Chelsea defender said: “Certainly from the fans’ perspective, few people will be excited about the World Cup.

“If you look at the last time we won anything for England it was a long, long time ago.

“So naturally they don’t expect. But I’d like to think everyone is positive and behind us.

“Sooner or later England are going to win a competition, whether it’s now or in 10 or 25 years.

“But it’s going to happen and when it does I’m sure it will be absolutely huge. I think positivity is the way.

“Sometimes as players we come off the back of games which are not always great, but it’s almost like everyone is waiting with the negativity.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
