I'm really looking forward to this WC and to England's participation. Usually there is the expectation that we could win the competition; however this time around things are less bombastic and more realistic. Without the star names of previous competitions (except prima donna Rooney) I hope the current squad will play for the shirt and country. Who knows eh?! New stars may be born on the international stage and we may end up in the later stages of the knockout phase - stranger things have happened!!
