We will bore one more than you, England!
Hardly the stuff of dreams, but nevertheless England progress to the Quarter Finals. And Portugal next. Well, hopefully the prospect of playing a top team will galvanise England to play to something approaching tehir full potential. Thought Rooney ran his heart out up-front and Hargeaves and Ashley Cole were very good, especially Cole's last-ditch block to save a certain Ecuador goal.
If I were Sven, I'd sh*g Ulrika again. No seriously I would put Lennon in for Beckham and drop Lampard for Carragher/Neville with Hargeaves anchoring the midfield with Carrick roaming and Gerrard charging forward with Cole and Lennon attacking up the flanks.
