Keys to World Cup glory

Former England manager Graham Taylor on why special talents hold the key to World Cup success.

Former England manager Graham Taylor tells the Training Ground exactly what it takes for a team to win the FIFA World Cup. With Brazil being the only country to win the trophy outside their own continent, geography and conditions remain a key determining factor. But Taylor also states that experience and a special talent are two vital strengths among previous World Cup winners ahead of the 2010 edition of the tournament in South Africa.
