    Algeria will shock England 1-0, Majid Bougherra will keep Rooney quiet before getting bored and scoring a solo goal of his own.

    Supporting Algeria and the USA in this group, due to the presence of Boogie, Maurice Edu and DaMarcus Beasley.

    If we don't go through we want to give it up, tbh.

    Actually our record of qualifying for the next stage is very good; haven't failed to make it (when we've qualified) since 1958.

    Expecting America to advance with us and could actually see them nicking a draw; have some good pros in their team.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    The normal England scenario would be to play three horrible group games, a godawful second round and then go out 1-0 in a quarter final full of drama, with Rooney sent off for being an oaf.

    Should win the group but how much further they get is up for discussion.We have no chance of winning it though as Brazil and Spain are in a different league to us.

    No doubt the press will hype it up again only for Gerrard and Lampard to go missing when it matters in an England shirt.

    In all probability.

    I reckon it's come around 12 months too late for us. Not that I ever fancied us beating Spain or Brazil, but we were looking better last year. Since then, Ferdinand's looking even more accident prone than previously, Terry's looking too old, Cashley & Lennon are out, Gerrard's in decline, ditto Carrick. Plus Johnson's still a liability in defence and we still have no idea who should partner Rooney. And, contrary to what we're told, Wazza is not remotedly in the same league as Messi & Ronaldo.

    And what have Messi or Ronaldo done for Argentine or Portugal lately? Infact, what has Messi ever done at international level?

    Messi - the Graeme Hick of football?

    Way to ignore the fact that Messi was 18 and not a regular starter last time there was a World Cup. Had a pretty good Copa America last time iirc, until Argentina had their customary choke to Brazil.

    Ronaldo has participated in runs to the Euro 2004 final and semis of the 2006 World Cup. Not a bad pedigree for a guy who's only 25.
