Portugal or argentina.

Think england will get to the semis. We have a young fresh team and it is what we need I believe a team with nothing to lose.

I'll go for Germany. Brazil do have a good team too.

I'm not sure about the hype around France and Belgium. They just don't have that something.

England would potentially meet Brazil at the quarter-final stage. They'll comfortably win the group, but they won't beat any of the big boys.

Brazil are a different team now. Last WC everyone knew they were a bit weak and didn't expect much.

They won their qualification group at an absolute canter.

It's England's back line that is going to cost. Pickford always has big mistakes in him and having Stones, Cahill and Maguire in front of him won't help too much.

Disappointed in general with the WC so far. The Spain v Portugal game was a brilliant game, but other than that it's been a bit dull mostly.

Not good to see so many empty seats either. The WC is always better in countries that are huge on football. Packed crowds and big atmospheres make it special.

I feel abit more optimistic with England this year, Think we will get to the 1/4s I'd be happy with that after recent tournaments..
Germany or Brazil for me. Germany never light the tournament up but they alwaya perform so efficiently and always finish there or there abouts..

Yeah I’ve seen enough England tournament performances to be dubious now but they’re an exciting young team playing the right way and with a clear formation and approach that for once suits the players we have. Quarters would be good for us
