England to get 9pts in the group

2/1 Yankee game the toughest but still fancy us to turn them over after the way we qualified might have 100 on pays for my expenses during the tournament [;)][^]

I'd say we'll draw with the USA, stumple past Slovenia and beat Algeria with a little to spare.

We'll have to really up our game in the second round. One of this lot awaits:

Germany
Serbia
Ghana
Austraila

I wouldn't be surprised if we were knocked out then.

So in theory i am getting 2/1 for us to beat the Yanks seems like a good bet to me.

Can't see beyond a draw against USA.

Must then score enough against the others to win the group.

We've beat the yanks recently and comfortably so for me it's a 2-0 win. I think we will play Serbia in the 2nd round and I can see that been a tough game.

can see us winning the group with 9 points and then playing ghana or serbia both of whom are pretty poor at the moment

I don't think I'd be too worried about any of those potential second round opponents.

Ok, Germany are great at tournmanet football, but this isn't the best German team by a long way. I'd rather avoid them though.

Australia are not the force they were 4 years ago.

Serbia were good during qualifying, but if we'd had their recent form ( 1-0 defeat against the Kiwis, 0-0 against Poland, struggling to a 4-3 win against Cameroon) there would be hysterical cries of "worst England team ever".

Ghana are also good, but they've got to miss Essien in midfield.

So, all strong opponents, but no one of whom we should fear.

I think we'll lose to USA, but recover to beat Slovenia and Algeria fairly comfortably.

England usually start off tournaments badly and the USA are a much better team nowadays than they used to be. I wouldn't be surprised if we lost the first game to be honest. But I reckon we'll scrape an uninspired draw.

I reckon we'll then win the next two games.
