England will draw Ukraine and France will beat the Swedes 2-1

Portugal, Germany, Spain and France through to the semi's, IMO.

England playing like crap...Rooney's lost, hasn't found his touch, and the team for most of the half were lazy. Only bright spots I saw were Terry, Hart, Gerrard, and Young. Rest didn't play good enough. Gotta pop in those chances for God sake and wtf is up with slowing down the pace when we have a good shot at going up and creating an opportunity? Get it together England!

I agree totally - and would add that Rooney looks completely unfit, has zero match sharpness, and is yet again letting England down. I wouldn't have taken him, and he's making mr think that maybe I DO know something about footy after all :lol:

His timing is off completely. Guys just killed opportunities for us, but good things I saw were he's using his speed to break through, and when he's hungry, he's hungry. My advice to Rooney if I was coach: Pass less, attack with speed and shoot.

I don't think his speed is there though. He has a half a yard of acceleration, but when running at players, he's running in treacle.

Young was taken out by Tymoschuk 3/4 times - the same as France did to the Ox. It appears to work, cos he's escaped a card thus far and Young has been mainly ineffectual.

It's easy to pick on Rooney, but why is Milner even on this team?

Why was he picked after Walcott, after Walcott came on as a wonder-sub last game and basically won the game for England?

Milner has done nothing all tournament, and has proven to be a complete waste again today.

Are you kidding? Milner basically played RB against France, as Johnson kept bombing forward to no effect. Against Sweden Milner was England's only threat in the first 20-25 mins, putting in some wonderful crosses.

Tonight, he's not done much, but has won some good headers and run his socks off. I like the kid, and would keep him where he is - unless we put Jones in for Johnson, in which case we'd be able to play Walcott or the Ox.

Great time to score. Good striker's instincts from Rooney too.

I told you England would get out of the group ;)

As for Scotland, if Dorrans and Morrison could get a game, you'd be well set. They're both excellent, and I can't work out why neither gets much of a look in?

Gerrard has been immense in this tournament. Finally been given a central mid role, with a partner who compliments rather than replicates him, and the responsibility of the captaincy. He's looking fantastic.

I'm glad I never bet on it :lol:

The quarter final, no matter who it's against, should be a good game. I have to completely reconstruct my fantasy team for the knockouts.

As for Scotland, as long as Levein is manager I can't see them doing much. He just seems clueless at times. The WC qualifying group is tricky too. No huge teams, but 4 teams that could challenge for the 2 spots.

I wonder if there will be the same uproar in the English media as there was with Lampard in 2010?

Or is it as ITV put it? "You win some, you lose some"
