What a great present for them to play against Portugal now!

Re: England


Yeah, they'll miss some key players, won't they? Mind you, they're still a strong team. They played much better than Holland anyway, I think. Well, it's England's chance for revenge now! Remember EC 2004.

Re: England


Hopefully England go into the game expecting a hard game and not too over confident.

Re: England


Well now I have got over the disappointment of being knocked out yet again in the QF's I wonder what the next generation will bring. To me Eriksson wasn't a particularly good international manager - he didn't appear to be able to make the big decisions required against the very top sides. England shouldn't have much trouble with defeating smaller nations so whatever side Eriksson puts out will invarioubly win. Unfortunately against the best 8 sides in the world the winning team is the side that has just that - the best team. England were not a team - we were the best 11 individuals in the country. I felt Eriksson picked players on reputation and not on performance - especially current form. They were not really a team that played as a team. Also when games were tight he never seemed capable of changing the style or the personnel to get the required victory. Hopefully Mclaren will have a bit of Roy Race about him and have the confidence to pick the best team and make the required changes. Good luck Mclaren's England.

Re: England


I didn't see too many teams perform to a reasonable standard in fact. England were close enough to scoring a goal against Portugal though, and in the end penalties are always some kinda lottery. Well, if they'd won that lottery they'd be with the top 4 teams of the world and Eriksson would be a hero... that's football.
