England’s first game in the Euro 2012 tournament kicks off Monday 11th June. One of the biggest questions hanging over England at the start of the tournament is will they knock themselves of the podium of most over rated team over the last 30 years of Euro history. The omens are not looking good.
England start the tournament with without key players (Rooney, Cahill) and are missing key mid fielders and defenders in Lampard and Ferdinand. There is a small chance that lacking Lampard and giving new strikers a chance might free up the team to play more free flowing football. Time will tell.
