Maybe Croatia.

Some very handy players in that side like modric, perisic, mandzukic.

See England are 12/1 ... I can’t see them doing much , but as long as they have a go... watching them pass the ball then run to be marked is pitiful....

They say Kane is the most valuable player in world... amazing ... he is a good player but that’s some shout...

The last event or maybe the one before , Hodgson had Kane taking corners... when asked why ? he should be in the box the reported said ..

 

He states the immortal line ‘He takes the best dead ball kicks ‘ all the midfielders can’t gake a corner, I thought was a wind up... so funny..

’You shower of shoot can’t take corners ‘ talk about giving players confidence ...

England have a good, young side. Going forward they have some real talent with Alli, Kane, sterling, rashford etc. I do think they are a bit suspect at the back. I reckon they will go out at the quarters. They could be one to watch out for in four years time.

I rate Maguire ... he will leave Leicester ... France v Columbia was a funny game.. I think there will be shocks .. Germans will be tough..

Maguire is good but the rest of the defence aren't world beaters. Their goalkeeping options aren't spectacular either. The Germans will certainly be up there. The brazilians have a great squad and are on good form, the frogs have an unbelievable side but probably the wrong manager.

True... in a tough group.... but van Marwijk is hopeful they can go beyond the first round.

At least they get a chance to do so...… at least they are there participating...….. more than some other teams who will be sitting at home watching it on the tele.

Anyway.... here's hoping they play to their best and put on a good performance.... you never know..... they could spring a few surprises and upsets.

cheers

I wouldn't go that far.

They missed their best chance since 66 in the early 00's when they had Beckham, Lampard, Ferdinand, Terry etc.

I hope they do well. 

France being in there actually helps them because it's highly likely France will beat every side in the group.

If they can beat peru and nick a point off the Danes. The Danes are a bit of a one man show with eriksen.

1970 should have got to he final.... But would have lost :) 

Were a penalty kick from the final 1990 I think ?

Tournament  football is just that , look at Greece  even Italy winning in 82 they were a poor side .... but sneak through round by round ...  have a good day in final ...
