    Will the Dutch finally step up to the mark? Best team never to have won it.

    My usual thing is pick a team to support alongside England, for when England inevitably disappoint! Avid fan until the last but also a realist!

    I think as usual the dutch will self implode, a lot of talented players but no real teamwork.... I used to love them but after their performance in the 2010 final I've gone off them a bit. I'd love to see a European team win it as it seems that everyone has written anyon who's not south american off (including me as I'm predicting Argentina).

    I'd be happy with Argentina winning it, they've flown under the radar a bit in recent tournaments.

    Watching the game Saturday night was infuriating. Then again, it's England. Ah.

    I actually found myself wanting England not to concede because of the big man. Bit torn when Izzy went up the pitch and had a shot.

    Interesting England stat: Since the EPL began only 3 players that play outside of England have ever been selected: Beckham, Hargreeves and Forster. 6 players in the Spanish squad all play outside Spain, in this years squad.

    owen was only a Madrid for a year 04-05 so there wasn't a world cup at the time and Mcmanaman was there from 99-03 and wasn't selected for the 02 world cup.... Wikipedia

    Same will be said when we go into the next world cup if we struggle in this one.... The issue was that there were nowhere near as many young players coming through as we do now. It could still be a big risk taking as many kids as we have, difficult to keep your cool when you're out in that heat (Beckham '98)
