I honestly cannot see England winning it. sorry

Kluivert and Horse

Those two are playing excelently at the moment aren't they, and they make such a great partnership :roll: .
You say Stam in defence,m have you seen the players they will have playing around him. Going to be Hoffland and Melchiot playing I think. One is crap and one can't get a game for love nor money.
In Midifeld they play players such as Cocu and Overmars, who have not been good since 1998.
Plus they are always falling out with each other and players liek Van Bommel and Seedorf are sooooo over rated it is untrue. England have a stronger team.
Melchiot is a regular in the Chelsea side, so that is a wild exaggeration on your part. Hoffland is a very decent defender, and has been linked to all the top clubs in Europe.
That is because their best player, Davids, plays in that position. Would Hofland, Melchiot, Cocu have a prayer of getting in our team. No.Owen Hargreaves (who you rate) would not even get near the Holland side.

As for Melchiot getting in the England team, do you actually think Gary Neville is better? A player who you don't rate at all?
As for the attacking midfield position, Kluivert tends to drop back and plays in between Midfield and attack and links up the play - Very much like Sherringham. I agree that Seedorf isn't a patch on the players you have mentioned, but he's more adaptable, and he's more of an all round player.
As for Van Bommel, he plays in that anchor role in front of the back 4, so his job is just to sit and distribute the ball well. No need to be a 'big game performer' when you play that role. Just need to stay disciplined and perform the defensive duties well.

Sorry to say it but England - Quarter finals again.
