Steven Gerrard said: "The whole team is behind Rob Green." Withhindsight, that's a good place to stand. HAR HAR.
Predictions! (Sorry, Algeria-Slovenia).
* Serbia 2, Ghana 0. Trying to stick with this cold-blooded thing. Ghana may be capable of an Essien-less surprise, but not in their first game.
* Germany 2, Australia 1. Our first three goal game? Germany (in Euro '08 and the friendlies I saw) plays a much more open game than their historic reputation would imply. High hopes for this one.
