Its simple, its win or bust for England who have to beat Slovenia on Wednesday.
Why shouldn’t they beat them. Slovenia are the smallest country of the 2010 World Cup with a population of just 2 million. They are ranked 25th in the world.
It is quite clear from the outside looking in that all is not well in the England camp. The fans are having a go at the team, Rooney has had a go at the fans, David James is indirectly having a go at the manager, Capello is blaming everybody but himself, now John Terry is trying to get in on the act.
Tomorrow afternoon Capello has to get his team spot on for England to progress in the competition.
Joe Cole must come in on the left hand side, Gerrard central, and Rooney must start with a new partner.
Every Englishman should be grateful to France as they have stopped England being the laughing stock of the World Cup.
Three questions I would like to ask Capello are,
1. Why doesn’t he know his no 1 keeper after two and a half years in charge?
2. Why does he continue to play players out of position?
3. Why has England’s form slumped so dramatically after the qualifiers?
England entered the competition with all the usual hype, great team, great manager, one of the favourites to win.
Tomorrow it could all be over.
The only thing I can see the national team and the fans are good at is boasting.
The team I think Capello will play is;
James, Cole, Terry, Upson, Johnson, J Cole, Gerrard, Barry, Wright Phillips, Rooney and Crouch.
What do you think?
