    He did say the other week though that he wanted to join England, but the timing just wasn't right.

    Edit: Costinha's been sent off, this game is going to be very interesting in the second half.

    People are calling for Beckham's head because he doesnt 'contribute' enough to the midfield.. well what does Lampard do? he cant run past people, cant pick out a decent pass, made poor choices in terms of shooting/passing, cant cross at all, cant tackle and CANT HIT THE TARGET!
    The only use fat frank has is to sit on the bench and keep most of it warm!

    I'm guessing Portugal are going to just try and defend their lead and hit on the counter.. hopefully Holland play the wings to stretch and tire out Portugal...

    I'm not sure, they are a naturally attacking team with an attacking manager, I can't see Big Phil making them sit back for 45 minutes because you're asking to concede then.

    Costinha off. I am now just hoping for a gruelling 1-1 draw AET, then Holland get through on penalties. I see Portugal as being more of a problem than the Dutch without Davids, Kluivert, Seedorf etc etc.

    Yes especially with ten men it's suicide.

    Cristiano Ronaldo off injured, bonus if he's not fit if Portugal get through. As long as he's not injured for the start of the season with United I don't care
    completely in agreement. But i feel sorry for him for being injured and if he stays injured...i'd rather he played against us and lost to us, rather than him not playing and portugal still losing....

    I don't care so long as we win! Although it didn't look serious, he was walking around after all.

    Yeah you do have to feel sorry for him because you can see he absolutely loves his football, I mean you could see the tears pouring out of his eyes when he was sitting on the bench after being taken off.

    According to statistics , Lampard has had more shots then any other england player. 18 before the Ecuador match, pity none went in.

    He will shine but for now he should be dropped to let Gerrard play his best. Gerrard is without a doubt better but Lampard is still good, just not now.

    I think beckham or lampard should be dropped in order to make way for carrick or lennon.

    To be honest I did think he was making a meal of it, but he clearly had a cut where the guy had studded his thigh and unfortunately he just couldn't shake it off. That's disappointing because he's fantastic to watch as a neutral.

    Simple choice - Gerrard or Lampard in the midfield and Gerrard wins every time.

    Really though, unfit Rooney on his own up front doesn't look good so perhaps put Lamps up front and stick with Carrick holding and Becks gerrard and Cole across midfield.

    True, but Portugal play 4-2-3-1, so now its just 4-2-3-0 which still gives them great options attacking up both flanks with Simao and Figo (edit: plus Deco straight through the middle)

    Edit 2: Nearly equalized already!
