Re: World Cup Discussion Thread
Raw Owl -I agree that its more of a 4-4-1-1 with Rooney playing the Scholes role in the previous World Cup. However, I'm pretty sure thats what the English will go with first up. If it doesn't work the problem is that without a fit Rooney the squad can't really change around. Walcott and Owen are much the same kind of striker and as much as I hate to say it they should have left Crouch at home. Bent would have been the much better option.
The Aussies just announced their squad and no real surprises. Even with all the concern over Schwarzer and Cahill the one guy they need to keep it cotton wool is Hiddink.
