Gareth's a World Cup winner... again!

13 June 2016

Gareth Ainsworth helped England clinch the World Cup Seniors trophy in Thailand, defeating the host nation 1-0 in Saturday's final.

The Blues boss starred in England's triumph in the same competition two years ago and once again excelled for the Three Lions this time around, winning the Player of the Tournament prize ahead of the likes of England team-mates Andy Hessenthaler, Barry Hayles and Jason Price.

Ainsworth captained the side against USA in the group stages and scored the opening goal, and was named in the starting line-up for the final.

He has now returned to England to continue his preparations for the Chairboys' return to pre-season training ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.
