>Today’s England Team

>There is no way England can play as badly today as they did on Wednesday…surely. We will qualify without much drama, and build on a slow start like the great teams always do…surely.

Well here’s hoping, this is the team I would have played:

James, Johnson, Terry, Upson*, A. Cole, Lennon, Barry, Gerrard, J. Cole, Rooney, Defoe

I am though hearing Joe Cole will not play which is disappointing. My prediction: England 2 Slovenia 0

Please feel free to post your teams/prediction etc in the comments box below.

*I obviously think Dawson should be in ahead of Upson but as Cappello confirmed this ridiculous decision a couple of days ago there seems no point fighting it!
