    Unlike previous years it seems there isnt that much interest. Perhaps its because people are being realistic about Englands chances for a change. I hope they do very well but not expecting too much.
    I suspect Germany will end up as World Champions again.

    I must admit to not being a fan of football. I much prefer rugby. There is too much money, too many high priced divas who seem to have the ability and acting skills to be able to trip over a blade of grass and then blame someone standing 10 feet away.

    Like you i wish England well, but suspect they won't be that good. And of course the old 1966 story will be wheeled out again. It is a bit like the Wizard of Oz. Always shown every dam Christmas no matter what. ^_^

    Germany have an excellent chance i suspect.

    Don't think germany will win. England may be home soon though.

    Was a victory. Just not a very convincing one. Probably a fair result in the end. Tougher challenges ahead.

    I suppose a victory is a victory whatever way you look at it. But Tunisia for crying out loud. ^_^

    A win = good result.
    Performance could have been better though.
    Wasnt aware anyone was blaming the midges.
