Ok so any thoughts on who is going to win it? I still think the Germans will win through.
Thought England played great though. Can't fault any of the performances and if Milner had done better after he went round the keeper we could have won the match. Only fear for England is if Parker and Stevie G can keep up the same work rate through the whole tournament.
Thought Ashley Cole was brilliant (and as an Arsenal fan it pains me to say that) - real stand out performance both defending and pushing forward.
England will not win any awards for exciting play but who cares. If they progress through the group stages, we'll have done better than most of the country expected.
Hodgson has shown a shrewdness in his tactics and his picks for the starting 11. The Ox brings some flair (attempts at it) and Welbeck some pace and enthusiasm.
I've still got a sneaky suspicion....
