No one really expects Enlgand to do much at all this world cup. not sure how much you follow english soccer, but i do and that's an absolutely accurate statement. Expectations are at an all time low actually. Like i said i think many 'experts' would be surprised to see them come out of the groups.
none taken. It's a given fact. getting a win in this group and i'm happy. get out and i'll blow a load. win the thing? I dunno what i'd do. probably go streaking wearing a torch and the iranian flag on yonge street.
