Although, yeah, the rest probably would. Ridiculous quantity of talent.
Martinez is as good as Parker, and Arbeloa and Montoya are both better than any English right-back. Obviously the left-backs wouldn't get in over Cole, but Capdevilla has been the first choice Spanish left-back over the past few years, and Enrique should make the Euro squad.

Well of course they are, but Lampard had banged in 20 goals a season for how many seasons in a row before last season when he was injured? Gerrard, one of the best EPL players of the last decade who's carried Liverpool to how many big victories, including a Champions League title? They're both proven world class players who couldn't perform alongside each other and have very rarely performed in general for England.

Probably.

He still has a way to go to catch up with Robbie Keane.

Well, he has one to go.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Interesting that Montenegro made the play-offs, and Serbia didn't. I'm pretty sure when they split after the 2006 World Cup, 22 of the 23 players in the S&M squad were from Serbia.

edit Just saw the own goal Ireland got. Massive facepalm for the Armenian defender, it was a cracker.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

How in the hell did Estonia finish ahead of Serbia & Slovenia?

Aside from Portugal & Sweden, and maybe Croatia, Ireland stand a strong chance against any of the other teams in the play offs.

Czech Republic
Portugal
Montenegro
Croatia
Sweden
Bosnia
Estonia
Turkey

For the sake of the tournament, Portugal have to go through and maybe Sweden & Croatia. I'd love Ireland to make it but I couldn't give two fucks about the likes of Montenegro & Estonia.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Sweden are through as best runners-up, Nige.

Are they doing the ridiculous seeding again for play-offs? Portugal, Croatia, Bosnia & Montenegro in pot 1?

EDIT: That was by FIFA rankings. UEFAs would be Croatia, Portugal, Czechs & Turkey I think.

Oh that's good news that Sweden are already through then, didn't know that.

The seedings last time were a joke but I'm sure they'll do it so their top countries will go through. All these teams have finished second, just make it a random draw. It's the fairest thing to do not these bloody organisations care about fair or promote initiatives like Fair Play.

Oh yeah and Capello can fuck off. If he goes about Euro 2012 like he did the World Cup there's no point us even going.
