I think we will struggle to make it past the group stage it depends on how good Croatia are there under 21s ran rings round our lads a little while ago they will certainly be a force to be considerd if not now later, as for Sunday my head tells me France my heart England so a draw wont be a bad result please God

I went to the shop to buy a flag but they only had English ones, so it look like I'll have to support England now !

I have just drawn Italy in the sweepstake at work well happy with that may as well pay me now.

England 1-0

Bryan - am a long suffering Murrayfield debenture holder (gets harder to fly/train up from London each year!). England will imitate the Scots football team when they were good and perform heroically against France, only to blow it against the Croats and Swiss.

2-1 to France. Or 2-1 to England. Maybe 1-1 or a narrow 1-0 to either side. Mmmmm, we could suprise ourselves and keep a clean sheet. 2-0? 3-0?

I don't know, can't wait though!! Am off to play some 5-a-side in a minute, may be too late to earn a call-up though.....

Locco Rocco - if you're a holding midfielder and haven't spent the 5-A-Side season on the bench you might be in with a shout.

France have an old dodgy defence
England cant defend set pieces

But with all the support up and down the country, cant miss all those flags, i think that it will be 2-1 England.

Then we will be slaugtered by Croatia and the Swiss

France does NOT have a dodgy defence! Gallas, Thuram, Silvestre, Lizarazu - where is this dodginess then?!

This is more wishful thinking than anything else, given the outstanding quality they have in other parts of the pitch. Besides, to get to them you'll have to get through Viera and Makelele first!

If England are to have some success they'll need to concentrate on THEIR qualities: heart, character, spirit, effort, ... etc. And they can play football too, even though nowhere as well as France of course!!

Let's hope this one is a great game, as I am sure they'll both get through to the next round.

France to win 2-1, Wayne Rooney sent off for retatiation, David James howler in 88 mins letting Thierry Henry in!

England do have a strong squad however,and should get into next round, although Croatia will not be easy.

Blimey, have you lot got second sight?

clowns :(

I put £5 on France to win at Evens and £1 on England to be ahead at half time then France to win the game @ 22-1.

So a silver lining...

Bet you never saw that coming?
13/06/2004 at 21:55
dont think David James did either ...

If England win Euro 2004 can we stop getting 1966 shown every year.

As usual we choke and throw it all away. I'm not watching any more games. Better ways to waste my time.
