Usain Bolt slams Mourinho over boring Manchester UnitedManchester United manager Jose Mourinho has given a verdict on England World Cup chance this summer.

Three Lions Gareth Southgate has named only three players from the last competition in Brazil with 18 inexperienced set to make their World Cup debut in this month Mundial in Russia

However, the 55-year-old Portuguese coach is confident that the players' experiences at their Premier League and Champions League experience will help them through the tournament and tipped them as outsiders to pip the likes of Germany, France, Spain and Brazil to the trophy.

"They have a good group of young but experienced players," 

"All of them play in the most competitive competition in the world, the Premier League, all of them playing for the best teams with experience of playing in the Champions League, which is a high level of football, obviously. Yes, I think they can do it.

"[The favorites] have good squads but good squads don't always make good teams. Sometimes not such good squads, in theory, can make better teams...[but] I don't think the underdogs will make a big surprise. In the end, the top teams in South America and Europe are the ones that will be fighting for the title." Mourinho is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

England will begin their Gruop G campaign against Tunisia June 18 at Volgograd Arena before taking on Panama and Belgium in their final two group games.
