What possible reason is there to believe England will win this? There isn't a hope they will beat Italy, Germany then Spain three matches on the trot. Once again the distance between hype and reality is a couple of planets. Have a look at the highlights of the first three England matches as a neutral. They were somewhere between average and downright awful for all three. Not a hope.
Scotsman wishing England good luck tonight. Think it'll be a really tight game and with Hart between the sticks I can see England edging it on penalties. You should be proud of semis what with all the indecision and injuries before the tournament started.As for the negative comments about taking on the might of Germany - yes, they're a stronger side than england but it would be a cracking semi...
If England reach the semis that will be an fantastic achievement for both Hodgson and the team, something the whole country can and should be very proud of. Simply reaching the quarters and topping the group has exceeded the expectations of many.I think we can count this tournament as a success in providing a boost for the youngsters and restoring a sense of honour to the England shirt.
the performance tonight is almost as important than the result. I do think that if we beat Italy tonight, we will give Germany a really tough game. Remember, the German defence is vulnerable, and England's is tough. However, pressure will have an effect, no doubt. Anyone else expecting 0-0 and penalties tonight?
I seriously doubt that England would reach the final. I've got no problems with them beating Italy tonight - they are more than capable of that. But Germany look a little too strong.Semi-Final would still be a great acheivement though.
