Still from a non-English and neutral POV in football. England are still a massive threat.
Arguably 1 of the best keepers in the world currently, Joe Hart. Can't go wrong.
Defence is very strong and the back-ups are pretty fucking good for England too.
Although midfield and attack are a little floppy currently with who we should be playing and needing someone to step up attack wise.
We should be happy with having 1 of the better defences.
Considering most players are premier league in this competition as well means we know what to expect from most.
Still. Whilst we won't be easy to beat France won't be either, Sweden aren't pushovers and Ukraine have host advantage.
Even if we get through we'll get Spain, Italy, Ireland or Croatia and none of those teams are easy. Even Ireland are good enough to steal 1st or 2nd.
