If Trinidad does the unthinkable tomorrow, you'll hear the cheering across the planet.
Prepare for more shock and horror: I'm on board too
<rant>Mrs Segovius is German and yesterday we settled down to watch the build-up to the game. You know, talk of the teams, gossips from the camps, review of the possibilities ahead etc and you know what? You guessed it - virtually no build up at all practically every single minute of pre-match airtime about ENGERRLUND
Why God why?
They even do this in my home country Wales
This is why I want them out - so we can at last have some discussion of other teams in the tournament. It's pathetic.
Another thing: on the BBC they have this dickhead pundit called Alan Hansen
who was a very bad player and is an even worse analyst. Ok, fair enough - he's Scottish (though he is one of those Scots that want to be English - from Edinburgh - and for whom everything English is a gift from God) BUT
whatever happens, he cannot find a good word to say about Germany.
He even named them as one of his worst teams of the tournament!!!!
I think T&T will draw this afternoon - England play very badly against such teams and there are many in that side who know the English style well - especially if (when) they resort to hoofing the long-ball up field and chasing it.
England are also psychologically very frail as well as a bad side and there is always the issue of the press waiting to pounce on any mistake., This always contributes imo - remember Northern Ireland
I think 1-1 then Paraguay/Sweden draw 1-1 also.
Paraguay win by more than one (or T&T win!) and Sweden beat England in the next one and it's hasta luego
