AP – Diverse England team wins fans in nation eager for good news (09/07/2021)

“The country’s hopes rest on a team very different from the all-white squad of 1966. A poster created by the  Migration Museum showed what the England team would look like without the players who had a parent or grandparent born abroad: Just three of the 11 starting players remained. Missing were stars who included team captain Harry Kane, whose father is Irish; Marcus Rashford, whose mother is from Saint Kitts; Jamaica-born Raheem Sterling; and Bukayo Saka, a Londoner with Nigerian parents.”
