It's the World Cup and it wouldn't be England without the odd drama or two.
That said, I can't believe that only 2 weeks ago we were all sitting quietly confident of our team's chances this summer. Then Rooney gets injured, Owen's comeback is less than impressive and finally Sven goes off on one.
I swear this is all a secret plot to wind the English media and the nation as a whole into a frenzy before the start of the tournament.

Rocco wrote:If Owen can play, this could work if Sven plays a 4-5-1, and turns Lampard and Gerrard loose to score goals. Hell, those two are better goalscorers than most English strikers these days. It might even work with Crouch standing there as a lamppost, letting the wingers bank crosses off him. However, that would be creative, and Sven hasn't shown any of that. If England lines up in a 4-4-2, with Theo and Crouch up front, Gerrard on the left, and Beckham coasting on the right...it's going to be a short stay for England. I'd clear a spot at the pub.
