Desailly tips England

French captain Marcel Desailly has singled out England as one of the main dangers to his country's attempt to retain the World Cup.
"England have the players. They just need to be better collectively," said the Chelsea captain.

"Individually they are at the level of France.

"With the manager they have, I am sure they are going to be there or thereabouts."

Desailly believes England's first group match against his home country Sweden could be crucial to England's hopes.

If France wins their group at the World Cup (very likely)
and England finish second in their group (very likely) they both have to face each other in the second round.

so maybe Marcel Desailly is feeling the pressure

:eek:

I think that this is just an attempt not only to curry favour with English fans, but also trying to downplay his own team's tag as favourites and take some pressure off of them....
