    The English and their long ball style are inferior, we are supposed to beat a low technical skill team like that.

    Only caught the highlights of this and the Brazil game, so limited data to go on. But, Gallardo and Wright seem very comfortable with the ball and composed in the box - good signs. Worth keeping an eye on this team.
