It's That Time Again

With less than two hours to go before the first game of the 2002 World Cup kicks off, I have to say I'm a little excited. With Becks back, Dyer, Cole (A), Sol and Seaman fit England look like they're ready to tak on the World again. I think we're at least the second strongest in our group — I'm also convinced we can beat Argentina, they're a great team but a little over-rated in my opinion.

Thats a whole different story though, Sweden are our first priorities; without Freddie I suspect that the boys in white (or maybe red) would pass their Scandinavian test with flying colours. It does look like the flying Arsenal winger will be fit for the England game though, which will no doubt prove a testing experience for Danny Mills or Wes Brown.

I'm unconvinced (as I have been for the last 18 months) that Emile Heskey is worthy of a starting line up, I'd like to see Darius Vassel given a shot with Owen. They seem to work well together, and pace is the best way round the tactically astute Swedish back four. Heskey's clumsy feet and poor touch will get us nowhere and any attempt to hold the ball up will be futile against Sweden's powerful defenders.

Enough negative rubbish, come on England! I'm off to watch the opening ceremony — which I don't doubt will be an unimaginably comical experience.
