a prediction game would be nice. Maybe deserves its own thread. I'll see what I can do.

Especially since 8/11 of the team were Slovaks!

England actually have a good team if Rooney and Milner and Wilshere don't play.

i dont get the obsession over hating wilshere.. sure he is a bit of a douchebag and probably doesnt deserve a call-up since he missed the whole season.. but.. he was MOTM 6 out of the last 7 england matches.. its not like england has some world-beaters at his position.. he should and will start if healthy..
dier, drinkwater, delph and henderson are the other CMs.. who is going to get the ball to the attackers?

i agree on rooney though.. he is not a better striker than kane or vardy and it would be a crime if he starts over alli at the 10.. wouldnt shock me if hodgson plays him in the midfield

I doubt an English coach would give up the back 4, but I'd seriously consider a 3-4-1-2

Smalling, Cahill, Stones;
Walker, Dier, Drinkwater, Rose;
Alli;
Vardy, Kane.

I know it sounds strange for England but it's the only way to start their three best players (Kane, Alli, Vardy) without giving up protection.

Good formation but the England players will never figure out how to run that formation properly without playing it in several matches.

Every time England has tried to play more European in the past they have fucked up.

They need to stay true to their style. Cut out all tika-taka shit and be direct, work hard without the ball and play organized team defense.

Dier is basically a third CB so there is no point in playing another 3 CBs


Hart
Walker-Smalling-Cahill-Rose
Dier
Wilshere-Drinkwater
Alli
Kane-Vardy


Might switch Drinkwater with Barkley or Rooney depending on the game

Klopp's magic is going to fool Hodgson thinking his players are good, so expect at least 2 out of Milner, Lallana and Henderson to be in the lineup.. Clyne will definitely be in there over Walker.. And who knows.. Maybe Sturridge as well

Rooney will start ahead of Vardy bro. Hodgson sees Vardy as a speedy spark plug off the bench. Rooney is still "the greatest Englishman of his generation" to Hodgson.

This.

Play direct, physical, and work hard for the ball. Don't do anything fancy. Try to play like Team USA.

They obviously have the talent.

We may not have the most talent but these guys are without doubt the most passionate and hardest working players in the tournament.
