Wenger: English youngsters can match Messi

Former Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, believes England have young players capable of reaching the heights of Lionel Messi.

Wenger admits Kylian Mbappe and Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Neymar are the two obvious contenders to fill the void when they drop off.

But he also says: “It’s now about the next generation and the next generation may be French. At the moment, the leader could be Mbappe. Of course Neymar, we know.

“But England I believe has a good chance. Now they are doing very well at youth level.
