Group… June 24, 2006

Posted by 30minutemeandering in Football.

…stages of the world cup are complete the only surprises are probably Ghana and Australia, can either go any further, well i think Ghana will give a good showing against Brazil but will certainly be going home after the game. Australia on the other hand are a diferent matter as surpise packages go i think Italy are going to have to be at there very best to progress.

So to the rest of the rounds winners and losers-

Germany – Sweden, I have to plump for germany just on home advantage.

Argentina – Mexico, Bet the farm on Argentina.

Portugal – Holland, For me the must watch match of the round, to tight to call.

Switzerland – Ukraine, I have to go with the Swiss, a good defensive record goes a long way.

Spain – France, Spain cruised through their group and have the momentum to brush aside an underachieving France.

England – Ecuador, England are going to have a hard match but will shade it if Sven gets it right.

What do i think the England team should be –

GK- Robinson, RB- Carragher, CH- Terry,CH- Ferdinand, LB- A Cole, RW- Gerrard, CM- Hargreaves,CM- Lampard,

LW- J Cole, CF- Rooney, CF Crouch.

If Ferdinand is ruled out by injury i would select Lennon on the right push Gerrard into the middle, Hargreaves right back and Carragher into centre half.

I realise there is the obvious omission of Beckham but he has jut been woeful i think his time has passed.

If you think i am wrong or you have a better team leave it in the coments.

Just watched the England Vs Equador match and as expected, England won yeehaw! Now I’m off to watch the Holland VS Portugal match. I’m hoping Holland win, but I won’t be too crazy about watching England and Holland play.. I’m supporting both teams there :=)
