I think if the mens team played in this tournament they might (just) have a chance of winning it, haha. English media, and over-rated hype lol - just sem to go hand in hand.
I've enjoyed the BBC coverage of the women's Euro tournament and the games have been, for the most part, entertaining. You don't watch women's tennis expecting the pace and power of the men's game so why compare women's football to men's? The competition between the teams is good and that's what makes the spectacle. But, can England win? No. Will they even get out of their group? Possibly.
Can England win 2013?...Are the BBC having a laugh????NO CHANCE....JUST LIKE THE MEN...WOMENS TEAM IS OVER RATED AND OVER HYPED.....What a STUPID QUESTION!!!
Poor result last night, can't see them beating France who were awesome against, an albeit poor, soviet side last night.
Probably not. 2009 was already a fluke. BBC, why do you ask crazy questions? I don't think the German press would ask in bold headlines if they are going to win it all even though they always win it all. Let's just enjoy the tourment minus the crazy OK?
PS I am 53 and 5' 4'', and a man, but can I play in goal? Just to help things out....Even I know a ball bounces....
In answer to the question - no chance! Like the boys....
in answer to the question the article poses - No. No they can't
Following Hope's comments, and having dwelled on things, I might controversially replace the keeper, Bardsley (sorry) with a man, but put the rest of the ladies team out (technically superior to the boys) for the rest of the 2015 World Cup qualifiers. I will then book my Brazil flight with confidence.....
401.mrmjvc12th July 2013 - 21:32Typical our media making a report to hype up our teams and next second they fail! BBC why not try the opposite that time? Or do you just love setting us up for a fall?---Another typically deluded football fan. Powell hyped them up making outlandish claims about beating the men, and you blame the BBC for the hype? Deluded. At least be honest with yourself.

You are delusional if you think the media has anything to do with their chances. How weak must they be if in your belief their chances are dictated by whether the press leaves them alone or not? In order to win tournaments you must be mentally and physically strong. If you think they can win it if the media leave them alone then that proves they are not mentally right. You are deluded.
They wil win it only if media wil stop talking and let them do it on pitch
Let's not forget. England women are technically superior to England men and would no doubt beat them. Hope Powell knows what she's talking about! England ladies energy was sapped due to the occasion. England women suffered mentally whereas Spains was more physical? Spain knew they were in a game. England have got to at least try and win their next game.They will learn from their mistakes
