What do the English press say about England's chances? Is it the usual 'We have a good chance of winning'?

Anyway, I'm rooting for Holland (as usual when Belgium's not there), but like most people here I believe Germany will be the team to beat.

I don't think confidence is too high, specially with Redknapp not being the man.

I can see that changing if they get a victory or two in the warmups, it is English media afterall and England are the best team in the world ...

If Ireland make it through the group then we will have a good chance of getting somewhere. I say a semi-final. We play well against the big teams and I think we will pull an upset against Spain. Beat Croatia, draw against Spain and beat Italy and we will go through. A quarter final against England and we can beat them. Then a semi-final against Netherlands and we could go to penalties and win it. Highly unlikely but it could happen because this is football.

This is not the FAI. This is the Irish national team.
