    Any team should be worried about playing England, they are a very strong team and have the capacity to go all the way, IMHO.
    As you say, much will depend on the night. England and France both have some excellent goal scorers and both have some weaknesses in defence. I am hoping Southgate doesn't keep his team sat too far back, the French will exploit that with long crosses into the centre. Multiple goals from both sides, I hope.
    (Actually I hope England win 3-nil. )

    I admire your optimism.Too many disappointments and false dawns over too many years for me.

    Have feeling Brazil could win it.

    Absolutely, they could. Others are still in with a chance and whoever of England and France comes out the winner should be a finalist.

    Brazil and France certainly play like world champions.


    Spain are there or there abouts, but possibly too young/inexperienced this time round.

    And their centre forward is Alvaro Morata.

    A step down from Richarlison, Kane and Giroud.

    Backspin, you didn't get david44's word play.

    Suomi means Finland in the Finnish language. He was making a joke (or a pun?) from your use of the word "finishers". He was referring to the Finnish/ Suomi people in his post.

    David44 likes to post using cryptic language.

    Korea providing the perfect example of how not to play against Brazil.

    That really should have been 7 or 8.
