CREWE’S promotion chances were dropped into conversation by the current England boss as the Three Lions continue preparations for World Cup 2014.

Roy Hodgson name-dropped The Railwaymen ahead of England’s friendly against Ecuador on Wednesday, July 4 – the penultimate match the team will play before meeting Italy in their first group game in Brazil.

When challenged on his knowledge of Ecuadorian football, the former Fulham boss responded: “That’s a bit like me asking what you think of Crewe Alexandra’s chances of getting out of the second division.”

But if a picture taken by a Guardian reader this week is anything to go by, Alex’s path to promotion might be paved with gold.

Perhaps it’s a good omen that riches lie in wait for the Railwaymen next season...
