    Italy are quite beatable really. Depends who we have up front who's fit at the time, hopefully Sturridge/Rooney.

    But yeah, here's to mediocrity!

    Italy has the advantage that they play and train in higher temperatures than we do. Italy play in temps between 15-40C...England play in temps 0-25C. Big difference. Temps in Brazil are expecting to hit the temps that Italy play in, so therefore, they have the advantage. Same goes for Uruguay and Costa Rica.

    Form, temperatures, and line up of squads tells me otherwise.

    The Italian's are quite beatable in group games, they were alright during the Euro's and the last World Cup but nothing spectacular. Drawing with New Zealand springs to mind.

    First XI will be something like Hart/Walker/Jagielka/Cahill/Cole/Wilshere/Gerrard/Walcott/Townsend/Rooney/Sturridge . Could be worse.
