    Bad start for England but it could have been worse: think of Spain and always look on the bright side of life ;)

    That's the last time I eat ravioli. :smile2:

    I've drawn Germany & unfortunately Greece in the sweep-stake, so I'm rooting for the Krauts this time round. :thumbsup2:

    Personally I don't eat ravioli since the infamous 9 July 2006:

    However Italian were much more classy in their victory against England :hilarious:

    yes, they lost but it was hardly a bad start by their standards. they played well and there were plenty of positives they guys can use going into their next match.

    England deserved a 2:2 score IMHO. Tough shit, the Italians' catenaccio

    Loosing your 1st match in the WC competition is always a bad-start, not matter your standard.
    After it doesn't mean that UK cannot win the competition.
    Actually France did not win the 1st and 2nd match of the 2006 WC and they went until the final.

    Personally I think it is hardly the best team (in term of play) that win the World Cup but often the one with the "guts"(an a bit of luck).

    losing your first match is also a bad way to start...

    are you familiar with how poorly they normally start? i'm talking about more than just points here and it would be silly to ignore their opposition in these matches. i've spoken to loads of english about this so far; most are taking it pretty well and with optimism.

    what do you think is worse: losing to the italians while performing well, or drawing with the americans while squandering chances? i know what my english friends would say.

    england, not the UK. maybe england would have won another WC had they played as the UK. plenty of talent they've missed out on over the decades.
