A winter break is coming to the Premier League meaning *guaranteed* World Cup win

The Football Association are set to finally bring a winter break into the Premier League

Winter is coming.

Whoops, that should say a winter break is coming.

After years of talking about it the FA are finally set to give Premier League footballers some time off during English football’s hectic winter schedule.

Thirteen days, to be precise.

The breakthrough has come after the FA, Premier League and Football League all came to an agreement which will result in an entire round of FA Cup fixtures being played midweek.

That will clear a two-week break during early February before European fixtures get back up and running.

So when will we see the results?

In theory all the players heading to Euro 2020 at the end of the 2019/20 Premier League season will feel the benefits of an extended break.

Cue that familiar crushing feeling when we’re knocked out in the quarter-finals thanks to a Kai Rooney missed penalty.

Spare a thought for those footballers playing outside of the Premier League in England.

The winter break won’t apply for Championship, League One or League Two footballers.

Their 46-game schedule meant there was less wiggle room to find space for a break during the campaign.

So don’t expect any Southend United players to make the cut when it comes to England’s 2020 squad.

They’ll all still be knackered.
