Italy usually starts off slow so I could see a draw there.

Pancake Syrup Ali - England's 2014 squad is much better than the 2010 squad

2010

GK: David James, Robert Green, Joe Hart

DF: Glen Johnson, Ashley Cole, Michael Dawson, John Terry, Stephen Warnock, Matthew Upson, Jamie Carragher, Ledley King

MF: Steven Gerrard (C), Aaron Lennon, Frank Lampard, Gareth Barry, James Milner, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Michael Carrick

FW: Peter Crouch, Wayne Rooney, Jermain Defoe, Emile Heskey



2014:

GK: Joe Hart, Ben Foster, Fraser Forster

DF: Glen Johnson, Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Phil Jagielka, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Luke Shaw

MF: Steven Gerrard (C), Jack Wilshere, Frank Lampard, Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner, Raheem Sterling, Ross Barkley

FW: Daniel Sturridge, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Rickie Lambert


Only thing you could say is maybe better is the defense. No Terry and guys like Smalling are there in place for him. Keeper, Midfield and Forward options are better though and England have multiple highly rated young players in that squad so they have their future already ready to make an impact

I hate Terry, but it's undeniable that he's a leader at the back.  Liverpool lacked a loud voice captaining the back four....not sure who England has that would prevent them from having the same problem

Cahill is terry's CB partner at Chelsea

That doesn't say anything though. Skrtel and Agger both partnered with Carra, yet there was no voice at the back once Carra retired

Agger is that tbh he's just had a shit season with injuries not helping. Same thing with Lucas which is why Rodgers moved Gerrard to where he is now at that times instead of after the World Cup

I think they can win the group. Suarez is banged up and Uruguay's midfield is of dubious quality. Italy is aging and England's youth-oriented squad may be able to keep a high pace and wear them down.

England will either go out in the group stage or the qtr final imo.

I am English but we are shit! Every time the WC comes along the media hypes up the team adding loads of pressure and they always disappoint.

Ox being out is a massive blow as well.

This tournament won't be particularly successful but I think England will have a real chance in the next one with the young talent they have coming through at the moment. Phone Post 3.0

Sounds like Marco Reus just got injured badly in the friendly.  Already speculation he's done for the WC

This is why i don't like friendly games vs countries that have nothing to play for.


1 for a warm up is ok but after that you're just asking for someone to get hurt

You'll be crying into your signed Clint Dempsey shirt when England gets out of their group while the US team fails to win a single game even though the manager and like half the team arent even American. Phone Post 3.0

As an English fan we always seem to fail. I don't have great expectations. As long as we play attacking attractive football I don't really care. Just as long as we don't play negative as hell like we have for thr last 20 odd years. Phone Post 3.0
