Nice liccle draw for England, Portugal to have a shock exit.
I really think Ivory Coast can stun Portugal. Since its in Africa this time id like to see 1 or 2 african nations get into the knockout stages
anybody think Capello will snub Beckham for the finals squad?
He won't snub Beckham purely because he has the amazing presence that can lift the whole team, a bit like Wilkinson in the England rugby team. And he can cross/pass better than anyone else in our squad.
And to nogi-drew i don't think milner or young will make it whether they're fit or not and i'm not sure about walcott and wright-phillips either. Also even with Joe Cole fit i think that Gerrard on the left and Barry/Hargreaves (if fit) and Lampard in the centre is a better midfield than with Cole on the left and Lamps/Gerrard in the centre.
hargreaves didnt play in any qualifiers. he wont be on the plane to rustanberg much less the united training ground the way hes rehabing.

defoe is better than agbonlahor but he has more pace than any of the other english strikers. i think heskey and bent will get snubbed. crouch will b the big man on the plane
