England's Path Clear

So there you have it, England might have stuttered at times, but they have done no more than you could ask for, and won their group.

So the path is now clear.

We play Ecuador on Sunday 25th June at 4pm.

The winners of that game will play a quarter final on 1st July at 4pm. (Portugal or Holland)

The winners of that have a semi final on Wednesday 5th July at 8pm. (Probable: Brazil)

The FINAL will be held in Berlin on Sunday 9th July with a 7pm kick off. (Probable: Argentina)

Unfortunately, unless England start to defend set pieces and remember how to pass the ball, we'll not be there. Still a hope though!

Very poor second half last night and the prospect of Rooney and Crouch up front, who both like to drop deep, doesn't give you much confidence. It's been said before, he should have taken Bent or Defoe who both like to play on the shoulder of the last defender and would have been a direct replacement for Owen

Drop beckham he has been pretty useless all tournament. Obviously play lennon in his place. Keep Hargreaves as holding player. Drop lampard in the attacking midfield role and let the G Force loose on the World Cup. Crouch and Rooney wont work as mentioned above so its time for Walcott to sink or swim. (All that I didnt even ask for 4m per year).

Think you'd do a better job than Eriksson on that evidence Tyler. Maybe a job at VP awaits you..... ;-)

And totally agree it's time to see what Walcott is made of. Why has he taken him if he's not going to use him?
DougInABox
Agree DougInABox. Why didnt he introduce him at some stage last night. A quarter-final of the World Cup is not the time or place to throw this untried kid into the mix.

I was fuming that he didn't send Walcot on when Owen came off, after all, there was no real risk, or more accurately, although group position was at stake, we were already qualified so it was the safest opportunity for him to come on and he would have been a direct replacemnt for Owen, small and quick. I must say though, I've been quite impressed by Crouch when they've played the ball to his feet, unfortunately with him being so tall, they always try to play to his head which is not his natural game. If England can repeat their first half performance from last night, but manage it for the whole match, they will be a challenge for any team in the world and could quite conceivably win the whole toutrnament, but 45 minutes of the required quality from the 270 minutes so for played does not fill me with total confidence.

Were on our way !! This is England chaps. We'll play carp and beat Ecuador with a dodgy goal then rooney will take Brazil apart on his own and Stevie G will get a hat trick in the final. Yessssssssssss
