England are going to win the Euro's!

You could get carried away with England's beating of Spain last week but whatever Cesc Fabregas says England did play OK and their tactics threw the Spanish team. Yes Spain usually face teams that will play with two banks of four but they normally break through. Saturday they didn't and that gives England a little more hope going into the Euros. By playing like England did they will either, win 1-0 every game, draw 0-0 or lose 1-0. Only time will tell if England's tournament form has improved as we know they can get through the group stages with ease. But here's a few reason to be optimistic.

1. The youth have no fear. The likes of Phil Jones, Jack Rodwell, Danny Welbeck, Kyle Walker all look like this could and will rise to the occasion when need. Unlike the old crop who looked scared and nervous playing for England this lot look to be as cool as a cucumbers.

2. Great Keeper, Joe Hart is ever present for City, kept out one of the best keepers in Shay Given last year. He should have started at the World Cup.

3. No Gerrard / Lampard problem. Now with a 3 man centre midfield this issue has gone. Parker does the dirty work then Jack Wilshere plus another will do the rest.

4. Poland and Ukraine, it won’t be too hot which has been a cause of many excuses for years with England.

5 The WAGS are back so you never know!

  1. The new generation have potential, but they will most likely choke on the big stage like they always do!!

    Portugal have a great chance, Helder Postiga for top scorer!!
