    World Cup Italia 90', when I was 5 years of age.
    '90 when I was 9. None of the others since have been quite as good IMO

    1994, was 7 at the time. Remember the final espcially the shoot-out. Baggio was injured and I knew that when he steped up he was going to miss. For some reason I wanted Italy and I can remember being thoroughly pissed off.

    94 was good to. Despite Baggio being injured he played the most exquisite footy, and aved them with I think two?(correct me if wrong) last minute equalisers and a winner

    What a beautiful player

    Must have been France '98, because the first football I ever watched was Euro '96
    Yes, that's exactly the same with me.

    Euro '96 was the greatest performance I've ever seen England put on... let us hope this tournament will surpass it.

    9 EPL players :rolleyes:
    well its better to put in players who you actually know are good rather than just going on some old reputation eg people putting in nesta and maldini in their sides (although it was clear from watching the Arsenal v Juventus tie that they were past it) plus the Premier League has got many of the best players in the world!

    Owen(if fit)or Bent or Johnson

    England have some of the best midfielders in the world and Gerrard, Lampard and Cole have been scoring freely in the PL so they should be free to attack and make up for the loss of Rooney. We need a mobile stiker to start up front - don't play Crouch there by himself.

    Think about it. Owen can't play on his own up front - certainly not when under-fit. SOLUTION: CROUCH AS TARGET MAN TO FEED ONCOMING MIDFIELDERS.

    Cole isn't going to handle the game's best right wingers AND bomb forward as he does when fit, for 90 mins. SOLUTION: SVEN'S ARGENTINA/URUGUAY CHOICE - CARRAGHER.

    Not a chance that Rooney will take part in any of the games. Just revealed he has a double break.

    Owen is more likely to be match fit than Rooney. If crouch was a couple of foot shorter, then yes, he would be crap, but his height gives him alot of advantages, i mean if you're going to stick a ball into the area, most players have to jump just to get on terms with crouch, or failing that, use a step ladder or something lol.

    sticking your leg out and hoping isnt going to work wonders against germany and the like! Personally I dont rate Owen nowadays, I mean what has he done to convince me> hes injury prone and hes wound up 'playing' for Newcastle. Thats not high standards. Id get a game before him.... lol.

    Rooney I am praying for you....

    since when did nesta and maldini play for juventus? Anyway, judging players on one game is not very wise either. the EPL has got some great players, but so has serie A and la liga.
