I think that as long as we can keep key players away from injury, we have got a good chance. Yes.

I think England have got a good chance but it's a case of everyone staying injury free and a bit of luck on our side!!

I wold say theres 5 or 6 teams capable of winning it but only 1 team will turn on the style and that is usually Brazil!!

good luck boys...

It's easy to say we won't win the World Cup, as there are 31 other teams that can. But so say we not good enough (not saying you have said that Geoff) is nonense. We are without doubt good enough, and we certainly have a chance, as does several other nations.

As the name of the competition suggests, this is a Cup comp, so with the right luck along the way, it can be won by 1 of about 8 countries.

Past experience... I can now remember 9 World Cup Finals tells me we will choke, we won't get the luck or the rub of the green. Our luck has already taken something of a blow with Rooney. We seem to have a coach that has chosen Walcott to give the media and his employers the universal salute.

What chance if a match came down to penalties? What chance one of our major players doesn't break down in one of the games? (Rooney, Robson, etc.) What chance a Gazza like miss in extra time (semi v Germany Euro 96). What chance hitting the bar and/or post (semi v Germany 1990). What chance we are cheated on (Campbell goal v Argentina, Maradona, Campbell goal v Portugal).

If we can miss our usual bad luck then for sure we have a chance. I said the same thing in 1990 and got quoted in a national newspaper! We had our best ever World Cup away from English soil.

But history tells me and as I have already said ... No we won't.

Trouble is, I don't think we are particularly liked as a nation, and that seems to come across in refereing decisions. I know it's a big statement to make, saying we are cheated, but would that goal against Portugal honestly have been ruled out, of it had been up the other end??? I don't think so.

-------I think there is about an 8 to 1 chance of us winning it and 2 to 1 chance getting to semi's, but history has proven, Ref's, penalty's and sending's off have made it impossible for us to win it.
..I there have to to say NO :( :( :( :(

in my opinion i would say yes it would have been. refs are always very protective of goalkeepers in most levels of football that sort of challenge on a keeper would result in a free kick being awarded

the dislike thing i believe is down to the media really, who portray Engalnd as a very arrogant country when it comes to sport.
