Glenn started in his new job on Monday and said he supported FA chairman Greg Dyke's target of England winning the men's World Cup in 2022 - which is being held in Qatar - and the women's tournament a year later.

He told

Winning the World Cup in 2022 is not a pie-in-the-sky hope. It is the kind of ambition that should catalyse all ambitions to do things a bit differently.

Because let's face it - doing the same thing, after 49 years of not winning anything - might suggest the definition of madness.
