10 England Team Predictions For Euro 2012

10 England Team Predictions For Euro 2012

Following the arrival of Roy Hodgson as England boss the following is bound to happen at Euro 2012 and the weeks after.



(1)England will struggle to score goals in the first two games with Sports commentators saying Wayne Rooney will be the saviour once his suspension is over.

-(2)Rooney will do nothing as per usual at a big tournament when he comes right back into the team following his suspension

-(3)Steven Gerrard the newly crowned captain, will limp off with an injury and be replaced by John Terry as captain once again.

-(4)Our goalkeepers will commit at least one stupid error costing us a goal/match.

-(5) Stewart Downing will continue his fine form into the Euros… Oh wait!

-(6)England will fail to get past the quarter finals. The FA Will fine Paolo Di Canio £25,000 for not reaching this objective and give him a 6 game touchline ban.

-(7)Players will blame the pitch, no Rooney for the first 2 games, no winter break in the Premier League, the heat for not progressing.

-(8)Narrow minded fans will demand Hodgson is sacked following the tournament.

-(9)Attendances at Wembley following the tournament will continue to drop.

-(10)We will be promised a youth movement that never happens.

Wake us when it`s over!
