    Not a hope in hell. Last time was 1966 and they still play that match on TV. big_smile

    My Dad has always been a fan of the Brazil team(right from the days of Pele) and my brother prefers Germany (although his favorites keep changing). Since India even if it qualifies to participate in the world cup would be a dream for a Billion people(so the next best thing I can do is root for another team). Personally all the awesome Brits I have met in person and here at hub pages (especially LondonGirl and Sufi) makes me root for England. smile

        Buying David Beckham doesn't mean he plays for the USA lol

        I'd obviously like England to do well, not be a national embarrassment as they have been in the past, but a lot of footy fans over here are more worried that international games are more liekly to end up injuring their team's star players.  Hence all these managers trying to ban them from playing.

        Oh and that new England shirt is god awful! big_smile

    I think they have a good chance but as England do time after time, they will build everyone's hopes up but then let us down.

    Decent socreline but I only watched the first half.  As usual it's a case of three stand out players playing out of their skin (Rooney, Lennon, Gerrard) with a bunch of wasters everywhere else, mostly midfielders/defenders booting it forward for no reason, and to no one.

    Good to see Peter Crouch breaking out the crap dance moves though

    Crouchy has a fantastic record for England and I would play him all the time if I was in charge. Walcott coming back into the team is also very exciting. Hopefully we can build on this very good start we've had and keep on improving.

    England beat Ukraine 2-1,but the performance last night was average.

    This is my opinion on the English players yesterday.

    Excellent

    Wayne Rooney
    Good
    Terry
    Gerrard
    Lennon

    Average
    Lampard
    Crouch
    Rio
    James
    Beckham

    Poor
    Ashley Cole
    Barry
    Johnson

    With such a performance last night even reaching the quarter finals in the World Cup will be a distant dream.

    They need to improve drastically when the world cup starts.

    Totally agree with you there sportsfan22, As much as I hate the guy Rooney doesn't half give it all in international games, and keeps that temper in check too amazingly.

    They definitely didn't show the class that the sum of those players should have though, hopefully this will come with time and experience of eachothers playing style.  Also I agree with Crouch as a good choice, he'd be on every game for me too, potentially with a smaller, quicker striker too (think Michael owen circa 1998 lol)

    I think they can win it. On paper they have as good a team as any in the world. They do lack a world class striker to play upfront with Rooney but if you look at the other players in their team they should have a great chance. Luck plays a big part in these competitions and if things go their way I think they can do it!
