  THE TAPESCRIPT

I’m absolutely positive this will be England’s year. Fabio Capello is such a great manager. He has put together a really good team. England is already one of the favourites to win. The last time they lifted the trophy was in 1966. They beat Germany 4-2 in the final. I know this team can also win. There are so many good players and they all play so well together. Wayne Rooney is on fire at the moment. He can’t stop scoring goals for his club Manchester United. There are also so many other world class players in the team and they can all score goals. They shouldn’t have much trouble getting through their group. They are in Group C with the USA, Slovenia and Algeria. I can’t see any of those teams troubling England too much. I really think England will score lots of goals.
