Yeah there are a couple teams in Dublin, Bohemians, Shamrock Rovers and Shelbourne are the big teams in the city.

They all have their own stadia....their capacities are that great though probably 15,000-20,000, don't know for sure but I'm assuming they are small.

There is Croke Park though which is the Gaelic Stadium, which at max is about 80,000 capacity I think.

Rooney is young, inexperienced and injured. What worth is the bloke's ability if he's not even on the bloody field!

All I'm saying is that the bloke's impact is gonna be severely hampered by his injury.

If Rooney was Australia's best striker, and if we were relying on him to lead us to world cup glory, then I wouldn't be getting too confident about our chances.

It's not as if England's got any truly enigmatic and match-fit strikers like Ronaldinho, van Nistlerooy, Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo, Crespo, and Drogba, is it?

The English attack leaves a lot to be desired. Crikey, I reckon our attack has the potential to be more lethal and fearsome in Germany.

But if Ibrahimovic was your best striker you'd be optimistic and confident?

you're not looking at the whole team though, sure without Rooney the strikers dont look brilliant. but the "attack" as you put it is not just the strikers, the midfield has Gerrard, Lampard, Beckham & Cole...all players who can score, especially Lampard & Gerrard who had 40+ goals between them this season. hell Gerrard scored 4 times in his last 3 games for Liverpool.

I dont think Rooney scored in qualifying for the WC & Lampard was the highest scorer...


that said, Rooney is fantastic, but if you take him out England don't become a bad team.

in the last friendly (against Uruguay) we were down 1-0 when Rooney went off and won 2-1, Joe Cole being the main hero.

Lampard has a superb goalscoring record.

I wouldn't be getting too confident about the aussie's chances if Jesus Christ himself was your best striker!

I am very impressed at how confident the English are... I like that approach, as it has proven to be the best avenue... to be back in the first round (believe me, I can tell, based on what happened to Argentina in the 2002 WC).

In any event, and in order to provide some entertainment, here is a selection of Argentina's best commercials for the World Cup (done by either Coke or Quilmes, Argentina's leading beer). The first one features the voice of Diego Maradona. Enjoy!

Quilmes - No Me Arrepiento de Este Amor (2006 WC):

Quilmes - Gol de Maradona a los ingleses (2006 WC):


Quilmes - Gol, gol, gol (2002 WC):
