England football players are required to be English

While I thoroughly agree with the general thrust of the argument contained in your front-page news story about the England football manager (Personnel Today, 21 February), it did make me wonder whether the author, or indeed Michael Ball quoted in the article, had taken into account that there is an unequivocal requirement for all of the players in the England team to be English.

I would have to agree that this still would not necessarily mean that the manager would have to be English, but it certainly muddies the water more than the article suggests.
