World Cup watch

As the domestic season comes to a climax, see which players will come back to and influence their club's standings. In addition, which injured players will make it to Brasil?

RE: World Cup watch

I would not mind if Wayne Rooney's ankle injury meant he had to sit out the 2014 World Cup as he's not been great when he's put on an England shirt.

RE: World Cup watch

Arsenal have a lot out.  Not really looking forward to the World Cup, I can't see England getting past the group stages.

I'll be watching this World Cup from a Scottish perspective, and I'm English. I haven't always felt this way.

RE: World Cup watch

I wouldn't play Rooney anyway.

Hodgson should deploy 4-1-4-1 system, with Lallana and Barkley in the attacking midfield and Gerrard sitting just in front of the back four. Out wide I'd have Oxlaide-Chamberlain and Townsend and Sturridge as the lone striker.

If the shoes don't fit, change the horse.

Have you told him this?

And why does Gerrard have to sit?

Coz he's old.

RE: World Cup watch

Andros Townsend is ruled out of the World Cup with ankle ligament problems. Estimate 10 weeks. England are getting a bit thin when it comes to flying wingers.

RE: World Cup watch

I must say I'm looking forward to watching it, with a lot of good teams who could potentially win it.  I don't include England in this, but I just hope (pray maybe) that England for once give it a good go, and go down fighting unlike the last few World Cups. I've still not got over that 2002 QF against Brazil, where we were 1 up and they were down to 10 men, and we completely bottled it. I don't think we will get out of the group stage personally.

Yep he's to old for this world cup and should be at home with his feet up. To may mistakes this year that have been papered over with Liverpools run of form, poor tackles giving away free kicks in damgerous positions, to clumsy and slow.

 

I will follow Japan in the world cup as well as the dour England with there depressing great escape band, zzz.

I think you're wrong about Gerrard, I think he's had his best season for some time, but anything other than a holding position would be beyond him now, and I do worry about him in Brazil.

I will also be following Japan too, and I think they're a good bet to qualify from their group. Their first game against Ivory Coast will be difficult, but I fancy them to win the next 2. Good technical football, and with more of a cutting edge than before, a dark horse IMO, especially in the heat and humidity of Brazil.

RE: World Cup watch

This is the problem with English players. If the temp rises above 65 degrees they are knackered. The humidity will be too much, unless they retain the ball - first time for everything.
