England have the youngest and most inexperienced squad in the tournament, no one gives them a chance over here and I have yet to see and England flag ? I think the lack of expectation might do them good for once....I think they will get to the semis...Brazil to win it for me.

I like that.  ”lack of expectation”, “I think they will get to the semis”.  No lack of expectation there given that the semis would equal England’s best result outside of England in the history of the tournament.  Hope you’re right though.

You could be right , so many times the media have hyped them up and fallen flat , it will certainly give the country a lift if they do well , this from a welsh man !

It's only really advertised here on the ABC as they seem to be the only channel showing it. For some strange reason Foxtel sold the premiership rights to Optus last year. I think you have to sign up for some Optus streaming account to see it.

Don't know anyone that has one and I have loads of friends who still follow their teams.

Good get for ABC I reckon.

Actually it’s going to be on SBS.

They got to the semis in 1990 and although outplaying the Germans lost on pens.

We weren’t going to watch but the Crows are doing that badly against Hawthorn my OH couldn’t bear to watch and put the France v Australia match on instead.  So far Australia are doing much better than I thought they would.  Just a shame the French goal keeper is playing well.

Crows doing badly is good.  No idea or interest in the other crap!

Was it worth getting up at 4AM for - probably.

Was it more entertaining than AFL - oh yes!
