England’s Delph Wistful over Expected Low-Key Homecoming

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia – England midfielder Fabian Delph said on Friday that he was saddened by the news that no official reception is planned for the Three Lions’ homecoming from the 2018 World Cup, where they lost in the semifinal.

England’s Football Association announced that it will not hold a parade for the squad, even if the Three Lions prevail over Belgium in Saturday’s third-place match.

“I actually got the opportunity to go home for a few days, so I experienced what it was like back there,” Delph said, referring to his quick visit to England during the tournament for the birth of his daughter.

“I then came back and told the lads how amazing it was, the support that we had,” the Manchester City player said.

“In terms of coming back to 300,000 fans, that would be nice. But it’s not going to happen. Hopefully when we come back in the next tournaments, we can come back one step further and it’ll feel a lot better,” the 28-year-old Delph said.

He said that despite the semifinal loss to Croatia, he was thrilled with his experience in Russia

“The energy here is great, there are lots of young players and they’re hungry. I felt like I was leaving one club camp and going to another. It’s been a fantastic experience for me personally and I think it’ll stand us in good stead for the future,” he said.
