"Not everyone get’s the honour of representing their country. Working with the England men’s senior team and coaching the Three Lions is arguably one of the most prestigious roles in football, especially when the team makes history and appears and its first major final for 55 years.
Chris Powell, Paul Nevin and Michael Johnson have all made their country proud since they stepped up into their posts working with our different England teams, and in this live webinar we’ll be talking to them all about it. This is your opportunity to get inside the head of these three brilliant coaches and learn all about how England teams train and play.
Make sure you join the conversation as we talk about the pride they feel representing England, and the pride they feel as black coaches working at the highest level and inspiring the next generation of talent from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities."
