      Actually would like to see Argentina win it so Messi can have a World Cup in his locker, would be great to see one player really drag a team to victory. As it goes...France are my pick.

      I wanted that few months ago, but If Salah wins the CL, do we really want Messi or Ronaldo to win the world cup? :D But then again, Messi has been just as influencial (in La Liga) as Salah but with better stats, so with or without winning the WC , would we still see Messi get that 6th Ballon d'Or?

      Not arsed at all about England,I've only ever been interested in how well the Liverpool lads do like most reds I imagine & that is the only reason I will watch them play & I would go as far as to say I'm more interested in watching Germany & Brazil play.

      Messi and Ronaldo will share that until they retire. I’m pretty sure they both have huge voting blocks who will vote them no matter the circumstances.

      Depends. If we win the CL and Argentina don't win the World Cup, it would likely go to Salah.
      If Egypt do well in the World Cup then it will be even more likely.
      Salah scored 44 goals this season, Messi scored 45.
      If Salah scores in the CL final, 1 goal equals Messi and 2 goals would beat him.
      There is of course World Cup goals to add onto that as well.
      Ronaldo is on 44 goals, we can't write him off either.

      Argentina are dirty filthy cheats always have been . It would be a miracle if England get out the group and then past the last 16.
      Looking forward to seeing our players doing well and games in general really

      But Ronaldo could be an injured cheerleader for Portugal again like the Euro's and despite not being on the pitch, being the reason Portugal win and a worthy winner of the Balon d'Or.
      It's got to be fixed, there is no way they deserved to win it every year for this long. For a start Iniesta should have in 2010, an incredible season and got the World Cup winning goal. Ribery should have won it one year too, arguably Suarez 2 years ago(?).

      Pretty much who goes the furthest in the World Cup out of Ronaldo and Messi will win it, unless Madrid win the CL, then it will be Ronaldo.

      Anyone else think it's a c**t move by Southgate to announce and change captains days before the CL final? Could have at least waited until after and then spoke to Hendo about it.

      He could have, but he shouldn't really be captain here either. He's not confident enough.

      Harry Kane said that we can win the world cup. He gives us a bad reputation. A good answer would be we'll win every game we can and just see how we progress.

      I really wish people would stop perpetuating this bollocks

      Numerous managers have made him skipper.. and they all know better than you.. they see him day in day out, if he wasn't a leader he wouldn't be either made or retained as the leader

      Klopp has had nearly 3 years to change him.

      He's backed by plenty of ex players who have nothing to gain by saying anything other than the truth..

      He was taken by Mo out of reverence for him to the awards beacsue he's a leader

      Honestly none of us have any clue about behind the scenes truth be told, for you to say he's not confident enough or he's not a leader is utter conjecture and bollocks..

      If he wasn't what you think he isn't then wouldn't be it.. Jürgen doesn't leave him in the job because he doesn't want to hurt his feelings.. He leaves him in the job because you know what? He's obviously a leader

      Keep saying this but he does the job Jürgen asks him to do and he does it well. Protect the CB's and give it to the players who score the goals.

      I thought not having the US team make the World Cup was a pretty crappy thing...then I see England has made Harry Kane captain. Now I don't feel so bad about our boys missing out ;D

      What has happened to Nigerian football.
      Truly awful against Ingerland.

      England have been very good in that first half plenty of movement and some nice football, hope for the same in the second half 👍

      Probably because he chose to play for England instead of Nigeria.

      Choosing to play for the country of your birth...well I never!

      Sure it's all just a bit of fun. Clearly a proud bunch are these Nigerian fans!

      Amazing that this England supporters band continues to live on. They suck the life out of the universe let alone Wembley Stadium. Absolute racket.

      Has someone not told them?
