England Coach responds to critics after securing his semifinals Ticket.

Steve Borthwick gave a strong view of England’s victory over Fiji in the Rugby World Cup.

After leading his team to the Rugby World Cup semifinals, England manager Steve Borthwick has stated that he does not “care” about how the world views him and his group.

After overcoming a scare in Marseille, Borthwick’s team defeated Fiji 30–24 on Sunday to go within two wins of winning the championship.

Since Fiji’s daring style of play won them over the rugby world, particularly in the triumph against England at Twickenham this summer, many neutrals have been rooting for them. The head coach appeared unfazed by the notion that Borthwick’s team had been portrayed as villains in some quarters as he considered making it to the semifinals.

“I care more about the team’s growth than I do about what other people think of us,” Borthwick declared. “I said that this is a talented team and squad that steps up to the big stage and has stepped up to the big stage before.”

Billy Vunipola and Jamie George declared before the game that they wouldn’t mind playing the bad guys to advance further in the competition. According to Vunipola, England is their first least-favorite side; I wouldn’t say Fiji is their second fave. “We are glad to assume the role of being the public’s worst enemy.”

George continued, saying, “I think people probably don’t really like us too much outside of England.” And that’s OK to us. It’s not as though we hold meetings and discuss how the world is against us. Making sure our fans are incredibly proud of the work we are doing, in my opinion, should be the primary priority. Anything beyond that doesn’t really bother us.

Bloodied, bruised but not broken – Steve Borthwick must stick with Marcus  Smith

To advance to the final, England will need captain Owen Farrell to be at the top of his game. Fortunately, Borthwick and his “public enemy number one” squad are more than ready to accept that label. The coach showered his captain with praise following the team’s victory over Fiji.

Regarding Farrell, Borthwick remarked, “I think he is a fantastic leader; he’s the kind of leader I know I’d want to follow on to the pitch.” He’s a terrific player who loves to compete, and on these big days, he just gets better, in my opinion.

Therefore, Owen’s leadership and role as a player on this club are quite lucky. And he ought to be quite pleased with his work and the way he guided this group.
