    I predict Germany, Ecuador, England, Sweden, Argentina, Netherlands, Portugal, Brazil and Spain to make it. No, really.

    I can't wait for Sunday now...

    Though this World Cup is torturous for us England fans and will continue to be so, hopefully all the way to Berlin

    Play like you did last night and it might be another Quarter Finals exit.

    Sweden were lucky to go in only one down, we were magnificent in the first half

    At full-time, mind you, even though they equalised on 89:50 we can consider ourselves lucky not to have been beaten

    So yes, you're right. And I was livid last night. But I got a feeling, a feeling deep inside oh yeah, oh yeah, i've got a feeling, a feeling I can't hide, oh no, oh nooooo, and anyway, that feeling is that luck is with us a little bit, even in spite of our injury woes.

    Basically my girlfriend is pregnant and my child is gonna be born with England World Champions of Football and Rugby. And maybe we can still have hold of The Ashes too.

    Wouldn't be too unhappy with that, assuming we go out to Holland. I predicted quarter's, semi's with some luck. Don't want to lose to the Argies though

    Really? Pretty well every one I know (the ones with brains at least) think that the quarters is par for the course, and anything else is a bonus.

    As far as 'I hope not' - well up yours too.

    It is destiny that we will win the World Cup

    But it is reality that we probably won't.

    LOL I think whoever we play in the quarters will take some beating

    England should beat Ecuador, but will then probably come up against The Netherlands or Argentina. They would have to play a lot better than they've done so far to stand a chance. Owen's injury may be a blessing in disguise, as he was really poor.

    Reckon you'll get past Portugal? Deco aside I've not been too impressed. You'll **** on Mexico if you get them, however you'll probably have to beat the Argies tonight to meet them.

    Where is this area of unbridled optimism then, since there's a fair number of English people on here, most of whom have never said that?

    They say that every world cup though.

    England have a good side, and they are capable of winning it, but they'll have to improve a long way.
