Russia: ‘England has golden chance to be in World Cup final’ — Jose Mourinho *AUDIO*

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said the England team has “a golden chance” to reach the World Cup final after beating Colombia on penalties, speaking exclusive to RT in Moscow on Tuesday. “For many years England is not reaching this stage of the competition, so being in the quarter-finals, playing against Sweden, having for the semi-final the winner of Russia versus Croatia, I would... Еще say England has a golden chance to be in the World Cup final,” he said. Speaking about the game, Mourinho criticised the theatrics and playacting from both teams. “I think there is an exaggeration on theatre by the players,” the Portuguese coach said, adding that “even today I was surprised to see central defenders like [England's] Harry Maguire, I looked at him, normally he is a very honest guy, diving in the attacking box asking the referee for VAR.” Mourinho noted the play-acting issue is more widespread than just England and Colombia. “Every team has lots of diving, lots of pretending, lots of pressure on the referee and then the game loses quality and for me that was the negative point,” he said. England will face Sweden in the quarter-finals in Samara on Saturday.
