Harry Redknapp thinks Gary Cahill and Phil Jagielka are nowhere near as good as England’s previous centre-back pairing of Rio Ferdinand and John Terry.
Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Italy was the first time England have lost when Cahill and Jagielka have started together at centre-back.
But Redknapp appears to believe central defence is England’s weak spot.
He said: “No disrespect to Phil and Gary, they’re not in the same league as John and Rio when they were in their prime.”
