“Will England win the World Cup? Frankly, who knows? It is pointless, nine months before the competition begins, to speculate based on the present strengths and weaknesses of the side and their main rivals. In 2006, Brazil were regarded as runaway favourites, based largely on the way they slaughtered Argentina – plus ça change – in the 2005 Confederations Cup Final in Frankfurt. Come the tournament they were laboured, with Ronaldinho hopelessly ineffective and the strike partnership of Adriano and Ronaldo looking unfit.” (Footballing World)
