Day 4 of this World cup is all about to get under way with two of those European heavy weights because of activity later today. Netherlands and Italy are both in action and while happen to be tipped as winners of this tournament they’d both be expected to escape the own groups and potentially advance further.
With 8 matches using been decided on the weekend, Bet World Cup more questions than answers have been pitched up. England’s operation was quite poor in my opinion and being listened to the pundits on English television, I honestly wonder whether these were watching the identical match that I was watching. I really don’t know what the UK’s policy is but it seems to be do not state anything which may cause the smallest offence to team or manager. Indeed Fabio Capello came out and said “It was a good performance. I am convinced he had been a lot more vocal in the dressing room.
I experienced the luxury if this is the right word, of watching Irish televisions investigation after the game. On that performance for these to be classed as possible winners of this championship is beyond view. There is not any speed or cohesion to their own play. Midfield needs to be sorted out and quick as they come up from the better teams in the knock out stages they’ll be punished. Ledley King is wounded and Milner was shot off to save himself getting shipped off. Carragher was skint within five minutes of arrival on and was lucky never to give away a penalty. Wright -Phillips have to have been left on the seat. Green atoned somewhat for his mistake with an excellent rescue that slipped off the post and if this had gone it’d have been disastrous because their was not much hope of anything going in at the opposite end. Rooney was isolated up front with no decent service to him and frustration building while the game went. Heskey had a fantastic chance but blasted the ball directly at the keeper and the all important final ball was poor all evening.
Germany on the other hand, fired a warning shot to the rest of teams with a clinical display of death and ending which seen their own mixture of experience and youth romp past the Aussies 4-0. As I have said before guideline the Germans out in your peril. They may not have enough to make it all the way however they are never to be discounted. The winners and runnersup from England’s band and Germanys group have to play one another at the upcoming round that could throw that repeat of their 66 final. Just one winner on your performances displayed within the weekend I’m afraid. Hopefully it’s just a slow beginning from England and they are going to build slowly into the tournament, however they can’t afford any slip ups. Algeria and Slovenia shouldn’t create England some issues, but then a USA didn’t cause them any significant difficulties either and they came out with some spot.
Final issue may be that the print press in England who seem to just love when things move a little bit pear shaped. They were all over Robert Green such as a rash. This indicates the only thing which interests them would be the large brash headline which will add several numbers with their flow figures. Why not examine the truth, encourage the team and quit looking to assassinate any person who makes a blunder. Can they round on Rooney in precisely the same way if he misses the crucial penalty in the final? Probably, even with all he has done to your team. Remember Beckham later he has sent off against Argentina. The way England may have achieved with his quality of departure on Saturday night.
