Funny that this England x Argentina is in the same week as the Queen's jubilee.;)

Probalby 99% of Brazil will be England since they were a child.....i'm officially since i was 10 years old;) :D :cool:

I think England will beat the argies tomorrow..after all it will be THIRD TIME LUCKY!;)

Just wanna see some battels in the pitch..... Scholesy against dirty Simeone, Heskey x Samuel, the trituration of Owen upon Placente, and what about Mills and Sorin...some sparks will come out of this one!

Becksy will loads to proove, this will be a game he'll rememebr all his life..a game to redeem himslef. And football will probaly remember forever!;) :cool:

COME ON ENGURLUND, CAUSE W LUV U!!!;) :cool:

AND GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!;) :D :D :D

uDuD, brasil and england don't need good luck. it's argentina that needs luck -- so they don't get humiliated 4x0 by beckham free kicks after simeone's fouls outside the box!

what won that match for england was the coach, erikson! he made some moves that really paid off well.

first, i was really surprised he stayed with danny mills in defense after mills caused the sweden goal in the first match. and mills was really weak again in the first 15-20 minutes. but after that, he really settled down and was the hardest worker on the field. he made some great challenges and interceptions late in the game, and he was always running 100 percent. but i still think he hurts england's chances. brazil would run circles around him in the quarterfinal (if arg beats sweden and england ties nigeria, which i think will happen). could you imagine denilson dribbling on mills? :)

also, erikson was brilliant to put wright in midfield for the injured hargreaves (not kieron dyer). and he took off heskey at just the right time. and nicky butt in the middle was awesome.

arg's bielsa made too many mistakes. arg tried too many crosses into the box, where england is just too big, with sol campbell and rio ferdinand. and seaman never had any trouble once with a cross. arg should have used their superior dribbling to attack more down the middle.

and batigol was a joke. he never should have started the second half.

veron? choke artist!!!!!! biggest shame of the world cup. maybe he can change his passport to saudi arabian and then have a chance to stay on the field all 90 minutes.

the way arg played, brazil would kill them in the semifinal.

Falcao,
I thught jpoint man of the match were Ashley Cole and Nicky Butt....the guy was in every single tackle......first time i actually enjoy seeing Nicky Butt play in my life!;)

Well, if you analyze the argie perfomarce versus Nigeria and Engalnd it was sort of similar. they have ball possession but as they play with the 2 wingers they emphasize there offensive game too much on them. As they are not as "silky" as an Edilson or Denilson the ball is always arriving rough to Batistuta (whne it hardly comes).
They do not have a play through the middle. Veron din't see the game today and when Aimar came on , he was playing way too far from Batistuta. And i doubt Batistuta has the skill to make a proper 1-2 the way a Ronaldo or Romario can do..his thing is really just to shoot to goal.

Sorin was another one that din't show up to polay, he din't play 10% of what he does in Cruzeiro.

All in all, the game was really good , tight , pyshical. Argentina were not violent..although commiting many fouls tehy din't abuse of their usual "catimba". It was mainly a rough game.

WHen Hargreaves came off I was very pleased, as i think he was one of the main reasons Engalnd played so bad in that second half against Sweden. He was not tackling no one and the Swedes were doing what they wanted in the ENglsih midfield and you just could not see Hargreaves on the pitch TACKLING. That was one of the main differences in Engalnd today.....Nicky Butt was simply solid, din't miss one single tackle and gave composure to Engalnd's midfield at the back.

I hope Eriksson starts Sheringham from now on.....until England plays Brasil......that will be another story!

It couuld have been 4x0 to england due to all the chances missed. I'm suprised taht a lot of people are talking bad about ARgentina. But they played almost the same way they were playing before, just that now they had a organized wall with a deadly counter attack. I have been saying for over a year now that the ARgentina defense is not all that.....run at them that they panic. That was what Owen did again today and they panicked. If Owen had a better partner up front than Heskey, the damage would have been more!

Let's hope they boook their ticket to Buenos AIres as quickly as possible.

And England are almost certain to qualify...... they can even lose to Nigeria and get through!

Falcao,
Juninho is like us too.... Brazil always 1st...England 2nd!;)

It's good to see that it's not just the English that want England to succeed. :)

I also want Brazil to do well, a WC wouldnt be the same without Brazil however if we both make it to the semi's i want England to win. ;)

It was in the papers today that apparently the Brazilian squad had been "impressed" with england and were most likely heading for the Semi's.

I've only seen their match against Argentina, but I was also impressed. England had a very solid defense and was getting good shots on goal.

Yes, there are also well-wishers in the Brazilian camp. Juninho, in particular, has been impressed and hopes England does well.

Romario,
When your broght up watching so many great playes everywere, were the build up to the play is essential, were skill and technique are the prime factor of a game, it is pretty difficult to enjoy a bunch of clueless players kicking the ball up the field and headering the ball anywhere.

I like it because i lived in Britain, so what i like is watching the fans sing and the will of the english players......but if you analyse the football quality......even I hate myself! It is quite poor if analyse it in a critical Brazilian frame of mind!
