Mathieu confused by England's rubbishness

Barcelona defender Jeremy Mathieu admits he is baffled by the England national side's troubles given the quality of their base at St George's Park.

I don't know why, having these lovely facilities, England haven't done well - it is something I cannot answer.

The English team would be the right people to answer that question.

We only can say that we have enjoyed so much the great facilities and the amazing pitch.

All the team have been so happy to train together and to get to know each other much better.

– Barcelona defender Jeremy Mathieu
