I doubt any African team can beat Spain who will most likely be in the final

126 days to go.

England are gonna be the surprise team as well I think. Belgium doing well wouldn't really be a surprise would it? They're like the football hipster's wet dream.

People have been saying England are crap now for so long there is nobody optimistic left. Semis imo.

It's not a joke. I've explained my reasoning, nobody expects anything from this team. Our players are very underrated. I'm not saying we'll win but we should be looking to make the knockouts and given the draw I don't see why we can't make the semis.

Hart, Foster, Forster, Ruddy, Butland

Johnson, Walker, Bertrand, Cole, Shaw, Baines, Terry, Cahill, Jagielka, Jones, Smalling, Wisdom, Lescott

Wilshere, Delph, Lampard, Gerrard, Cleverley, Henderson, Barkley, Lallana, Townsend, Milner, Carrick, Zaha, Lennon, Oxlade, Young, Morrison, McEachran

Rooney, Berahino, Sturridge, Welbeck, Rodriguez

That is a very good selection of players to choose from. There are probably more but I've just gone for those who are in with a shout, feel free to give or take if I've forgotten someone but that's the general gist.

Wilshere, Morrison, McEachran, Carrick, Gerrard, Barkley and Lampard are all great footballers and I don't think people are doubting Fabian Delph anymore. Personally I can't see how Cleverley is getting in ahead of Delph but anyway...

Cole will start at LB but I don't know how the defence will line up other than that. We have an embarrassment of riches at LB tbh. Under Hodgson we are hard to break down and hard to beat so the defence is not really an issue for me.

Up front, Rooney and Sturridge are both quality players, Welbeck can be brought in for his hard work & he is actually good for England. Berahino & Rodriguez may go, Defoe is at Toronto now so I dunno how that will work out.

So imo the players are there to be successful, the issue lies with tactics and selection, Hodgson sets us up well so I think we should have enough to qualify in 2nd place at least from the groups and then make it to the QF. Depends on the draw as on paper if we get one of the elite teams given our track record we would go out (last time we beat an elite team in a knockout was Spain in 1996).

But yeah that's basically what I think. Everyone expected us to get dicked in the last Euros, didn't happen.

I guess so I'm looking more forward to Euro 2016.

Sky have a done a documentary about Brazil, they always do this to discredit other countries. They did this with Ukraine/Poland and South Africa, I guess it's Brazil's turn.

I mean as in to harm their reputation, the racism documentary with Poland/Ukraine was a bit cheeky taking the moral high ground as to forget the racism we have here as well.
