Terry Venables’ brilliance was squandered by England, leaving them to ponder what could have been

Terry Venables, until Gareth Southgate, was the last great England manager. He took a team that was struggling to qualify for the 1994 World Cup and turned them into a talented and dynamic force. In Euro 96, he led England to the semi-finals, creating a sense of what could have been. Venables inspired an English enlightenment, introducing technical and tactical excellence along with attacking intent and embracing all the talents at his disposal. Venables brought hope to English football and left a lasting legacy that is still remembered today.
