No, english players are raised tough and excel in england where weaker divers from other countries often flounder. I would take Gerrard or Lampard over Xavi and Iniesta. Also, Terry, Carragher, Ferdinand > Puyol, Pique. The fact is many of the english players have never left their first team, and if you sold them they would make the most expensive squad in the world.
