Harry Redknapp gives Yahoo his verdict on England's World Cup chances for 'The 32'

Harry Redknapp gave Yahoo his verdict on England’s World Cup changes as the tournament kicks off in Russia.

The former Spurs and West Ham boss, who appeared as Yahoo’s studio guest on our brand new daily World Cup round-up show, ‘The 32’, believes Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions ‘could do better than we expect’.

Redknapp, who was heavily tipped to take over as England boss in 2012 before the FA gave the job to Roy Hodgson, joined Toby Tarrant and Reshmin Chowdhury for the first episode of the show, which will broadcast at 8.30am every matchday morning of the tournament.

Although he is keen to see England do well and said he always goes into the event full of enthusiasm for the Three Lions, he is not too hopeful this time around.

“England, I always say that,” Redknapp said when asked who he thinks will win it.

“This team has no chance, so I’m going to tip them.
