well they have some quality players and their league is great so what do you expect
they were unlucky to play brazil in 2002 i think they could have made the final ( and still get beaten by brazil, but final>1/4 final )
im not writing off a team with that kind of players i dont care how much they have failed in the past ( if that lampard goal against germany wasnt disallowed who knows what could have happened.. or if they didnt choke in 2006 on those penalties against ricardo )
not favoruites obviously, but good enough to be a dark horse.
