Exactly. England misused two fantastic players in the 80's and 90's when the team should have been built around them.
The very same said by a Portsmouth fan I know this week. Le Tissier could've been a great for England. Xavi reckons he used to watch Le Tiss and loved him - high credit indeed.
It was the same with Waddle, and to a lesser extent Gascoigne, we failed to use these talents in a way that really emphasised how good they were. Mind you, during this period we played to the strengths of Shearer, so swings and roundabouts in many ways.
