    Brazil have looked impressive in the past few friendlies but i cannot see England doing anything as i feel they are very overrated.Russia the hosts look very poor too.

    England being fine ambassadors.... according to a Farceberk post I saw, the squad visited an orphanage earlier today (wait for it, wait for it..... )

    I'm hoping that England get at least to the semis, we now have a decent manager and some decent players but they may need more time to become a force to be reckoned with. Or maybe they will shock us all and win?

    We'll get our first sight of the Germans this afternoon. I'm expecting them to be ruthlessly efficient and end up winning the thing. But I hope I'm wrong.

    why do England team have the British National Anthem (god save dirge) rather than the English National Anthem (Jerusalem),

    and, why do the fans use the Union flag rather than the St George's Cross?
    Y'all take care now.

    Reminds me of the Olympic snowboarding where they faceoff for all the minor spots - "hey, I know you're dreams have been destroyed, but we need you to race right now for 8th - 12th place. Cool. See you in a mo."

    Oh I dunno, we've got a score to settle, after they beat us a few weeks ago..

    You're probably right though, I can picture them winning the match. They are a good team.
