Southampton: Providing a bright future for the England national team

Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw have broken into the England squad and secured big-money moves to Liverpool and Manchester United respectively last summer, having been schooled at Southampton.

What do the Football Association's head of coach and player development, the goalkeeping coach, Fraser Forster, Nathaniel Clyne, Calum Chambers, Luke Shaw, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Adam Lallana, Theo Walcott and Rickie Lambert have in common?

Reality check: Saints' Champions League bid remains only a dream

The ESPN FC crew discuss whether or not Southampton can continue their great run of form when they play the big boys.

"I have absolutely no sympathy for Southampton. They have a choice as a club. They don't have to sell. They had that choice. Maybe Southampton's objectives have changed. They were on course to be a Champions League club, I believe, but obviously, that has changed," -- Brendan Rodgers, August 2014
