England v Ireland and Brazil v England Empty England v Ireland and Brazil v England

Post by Duty281 Wed 29 May 2013, 12:11 pm

The regular season might be over, but Roy Hodgson's England have two friendlies to negotiate before they can put their feet up for the summer. Tonight, England host Ireland in the first game between the sides since the abandonment of 1995 sparked by crowd trouble. Then on Sunday, England make the long trip to Brazil to sample the conditions and atmosphere ahead of next summer's carnival.

Player-wise, Steven Gerrard (shoulder), Andy Carroll (heel), Jack Wilshere (ankle), Tom Cleverley (calf) and Kyle Walker all miss out for England tonight. Ashley Cole, England's only consistent world-class player over the last decade, will captain his country against Ireland. Predictions:

England 2-0 Ireland
Brazil 1-3 England

Im happy for Ashley Cole leading England out onto the pitch tonight, 102 appearances is just superb and he always works his socks off.

Im going for England 1-0 Ireland. A first half goal from Lampard.

Why do England fans sing 'no surrender'? I mean they've got the song wrong - it's 'keep St. George in my heart' not 'with St. George in my heart' - but it's a good article nonetheless.

No Surrender!

Going for a 2-2 draw.

Joe Hart, Glen Johnson, Phil Jagielka, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard, Michael Carrick, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge.

That's England XI for tonight. Good to see the Ox and Theo starting, our central midfield pair aren't too shabby considering the first-choice pair are out, and I hope Sturridge does well on his first start in an England shirt tonight.

Come on England!

3 ex Cork City players are involved in the Irish squad tonight and 8 who have played in the League of Ireland at some point, imagine how good it could be if the FAI actually cared?


Fancy England to win but 1-1 raw at 7/1, given the history involved in that scoreline a fiver was worth the bet!

What a shoite goal to concede for Ireland, I'd say Joe Hart was annoyed when the ball flew past his Head & Shoulders a few moments ago......

Lampard is a legend!

I agree Cole has been one of the best players for England over the last 10 years. But Lampard lets us down in the big tournaments IMO.

There have only been about 2 England players who haven't let them down in big tournaments in the last 10 years, England have had stupidly high expectations of themselves, coupled with their players being overrated.

Gerrard was terrible in 06 but was one of the better ones at World Cup and Euros. Rio was solid enough before he got dropped. Besides that the next guy would probably be Cole.

Lampard falls into the Rooney category of going missing in the tournaments.

But he's still a quality player.

We are blessed at the left back position with Cole and Bainez. Plus this young lad Shaw is gonna be a heck of a LB

Bridge retired because of Terry. But ill agree he is still class and he showed he was by far the best LB in the championship last season.

To clarify, I was joking when I said Wayne Bridge... Laugh

In hindsight the 2006 World Cup was probably our best recent chance to win the World Cup, no team stood out as great, Italy were quite good but a fairly poor France side nearly beat them in the final. England beat Portugal on penalties then they have to beat France who were being carried by Zidane and an Italy side that were strong defensively but poor going forward.

I never thought about that before.

Slow start from England, took 20-odd minutes to get going. Most of the threat is coming down the right through Johnson and Walcott but the crossing has been a let down. Rooney and Lampard look lively, Carrick is a bit anonymous. Feel for Sturridge though on his first start for England, it looked a bad injury.

England wouldn't have had a hope of beating France or any of the other sides, don't delude yourselves no lads! Zidane wasn't entirely carrying France, they had a solid team, and it was more than Zidane to it, although the man was playing superb stuff, as good as he had been. England were "close" but never had a shot.

They scraped past Portugal in the next round, I'm not saying that England were certain or even likely to win the World Cup, just that looking back they were closer than I realised. None of the sides stood out that year.
