It is almost here …
The World Cup starts tomorrow Friday in Germany and England will be playing their first match on Saturday against Paraguay.
The final piece of the jigsaw for the England squad was settled last night when our star player Wayne Rooney was finally declared fit for the tournament.
It seems that Rooney will be able to play later in the tournament – providing England qualify from the first round of course.
For as many World Cup tournaments as I can remember since 1966 (when England won the trophy) us English fans have always gone in to the World Cup tournament with optimism and sometimes probably unrealistic aspirations.
The squad of 2006 is the best I can remember and with a little luck I feel England can be crowned World Champions on 9th July.
My fingers are crossed!!!
