England-Russia

It is amazing to see the whole nation getting so excited about England beating Israel. It shows you how much trouble the England football team is in. Just 5-10 years ago, they would have expected to score 10-12 goals against nations like Israel.

Everyone is expecting tonight's game to be a real test now. People are expecting a close game; perhaps England winning by an odd goal. People are accepting Hiddink as a master, which he is.

In my opinion, the England football team will get a surprisingly convincing win over Russia. Don't forget the game is played at Wembley and there is a good sense of confidence in the team after Saturday's game. Most importantly, don't forget that there is quite a bit of pace and fresh blood in the existing team with Wright-Phillips and Richards. Of course, Steve G is playing again without Lampard, which seems to be holding Steve back.

All in all, I just hope that it is an exciting game and there is a deserved winner. Looking forward to the kick-off.
