relax there mate. i truly believe, on paper, the english should win the world cup. i mean look at this:pede54 said:English egos are for the English to worry about Sean......not the Irish.And in the words of Hernan Crespo "England versus Argentina is never friendly".I think the English in general are aware of the stature or not of this result,and don't really need reminding.After everyone having a laugh over the Denmark and N.Ireland games,its very nice to be able to say that we had a blip on those occasions and the win against Argentina reinforces the knowledge that we are actually a formidable side when we need to be.If that sounds like an inflated ego,its just a conclusion reached,not by one game but by the overall impression from many games.So ....no need for little digs at the English mate.
Seán Denny said:funnily enough, the defeat to northern ireland i think will prove to be a good thing. it could be the catalyst they needed! team spirit in the english dressing room is great. i just wish the media would relieve them of a bit of the pressure. like just say you go to another penalty shoot-out, the players taking penaltys can't be fearing for their lives if they miss. the fans are great, the players are great - and with some more media support, you will have a great tournament.
england are still one of the world's best teams, and everyone wants to beat them - but you deserve that respect

Ebonix said:Argentina played well, they were, at times, doing the basics so well. Fluid passing, smooth play and team work. Abonceniri (sp?) played very well.
