It's a big game no doubt, but recent games have favoured England and I have a slight feeling that this Germany side is more than a tad overrated. It will be tight but England must have a decent chance of winning. Rooney's lack of fitness is a concern, maybe it would be wise to stick Joe Cole in if Rooney's fitness is not 100%, Defoe should continue up front as he is our only striker who has that instinct around the box.
No matter how patriotic people get, we would do well to realise that this is just a game of football. We should all remember that despite some peoples' claims at being so very behind our lads, some newspapers supported Hitler and fascism for a good while. So despite their overly patriotic words today, it is worth remembering that the Daily Mail was pro-fascism at some rather key moments in our history. They have even recruited Piers Morgan, that is how low this newspaper will go. Anyway I just hope it's a good game and not turned by some dodgy cheating or poor refereeing.
p.s. for anyone wanting to laugh at one of the most hypocritical pieces of writing ever, here we have Myles Palmer accusing someone else of being snide!
