Well, it's better to say Paragury did a good job, especially their #8.
Any one watched the Mexico game yesterday?
They are fantastic!
BTW, England do have the best ever squard on their defence and middle field line, but they really sucks on their forward without ROONY.
If you look back in the history of recent years, England has never started a World Cup well. It is very rare for us even to win the first match. It would make a change if we can beat Trinidad and Tobago to not need to win our final group game, as we nearly always have to win this last game to stay in the competition.
I do agree though, it was a poor performance compared to the way we can play and I think that we will not produce anything special until the knockout stages. This is when we will step up a gear and give the cup a real good go.
Come On England
Paraguay will never be in this world cup if it has nothing to prove. Surely all the teams here have proven that they have the capabilities.. we should expect the unexpected for we cannot actually conclude everything in popularity.. teams have their own weakness and strength. Its just the English team have matched up with its weakness team. goodluck to Korea!
okay, well first of all i will let you all know that I really dislike England as a footballing nation.....
But I really do think they dont have any chance whatsoever of holding up the world cup..... Lets be honest, any team hoping that they were going to win the world cup would most certainly expect more than a flukey own goal in order to win a group-stage game against lowly paraguay!
Well.. it's their first game at the tournament.. give them time... I hope that they will play better in the next games.
Think if in Germany England reach quarter-final - it will be GREAT luck for them and GREAT success for Ericsson. But frankly, I strooooong doubt in this achievement. I am not fan of England team, but I for certain sympathize with it. But at the same time I just look at the things really - for now England play weak, openly weak.
No doubt, England did not play very well. Still I'm looking forward to their next match against T&T. I hope they can show us something by then. My only hope is that England was not playing for real in their last game. It was the first game after all and they're winning 1-0 already. But if that's all they have, I should be very disappointed.
England rules, David Beckham rock the game
England are going to have to improve if they want to win. If they come up against Brazil, Argentina, Germany or France in their current form they will surely lose. They are actually doing quite alright, but they don't look like world beaters.
