What would it take for a country to get rid of their national soccer team? What are the first step citizen or citizens have to take in order for a country to get rid of its national soccer team? It's embarrassing watching these guys play. All they do is lose. I am sick and tired of my nationality being embarrassed and humiliated every time they lose. NO team= NO loses

When Iceland knocked them out of Euro 2016, that was pretty much the end for England.

They may have lost to Iceland but their record since the start of 2014 is thus:-


Played - 41
Won - 25
Drawn - 10
Lost - 6


Not too shabby and better than a vast majority of national football teams I think!!

It sounds like a combination of poor coaching and either a poor work ethic among the players or not a lot of talent.

It takes both good coaching (drills, conditioning, practice) along with some natural ability and focus to have strong, winning teams.

What do you think is the problem, OP?

I just don't understand what the hell is the point of having a soccer team if all it does is lose? if it defeats a team they celebrate, but they never get to the finals, nothing, the whole team is a joke and it's embarrassing to the country, the only way they can be champions is if they create an entirely NEW sport and they will be champions in it if they only compete against themselves
