A few quick fire points on the National team as Brazil is only a week away.
- Rooney has to start in the first game against Italy, he's the only player England have anywhere close to World Class. People slag him off but I think this tournament he will do the business.
- I can see Hodgson playing it super safe in the first game, I would not be surprised if he goes reliable dogged players first, rather than young flair players, and make sure they don't lose the first game.
- England have a problem if Jagielka or Cahill get injured because Smalling and Jones are not as good yet.
