Why England will win the world cup.
The manager Fabio Capello is a born winner with a personality which makes him respected sometimes feared, unlike many of his predecessors, having won the league title with every club he has managed AC Milan, Real Madrid, AS Roma and Juventus also the 1994 Champions League.
England qualified for the world cup finals at a canter from a tricky group including Croatia and Ukraine whom they beat convincingly.
The players England have at their disposal, are in my opinion, the finest they have had since 1990 with Gazza, Linekar, Butcher etc. If Capello can pick his strongest team available then no-one will be able to stop England ending their now 44 years of hurt since 1966. James, Terry, Lampard, Gerrard and Rooney are the spine of the team and i do not believe there is a stronger spine to any other team in the world.
Finally the English press seem to be doing everything in their power mad little minds to disrupt and hinder some of the England players who will be carrying the hopes of a nation this summer, this is a good thing for the England squad, it will only create a siege mentality within the camp and make the players stronger.
