The World Cup 2006 has begun!!
And so has the countdown to England’s opening game…..
More than 30,000 England fans are there ahead of Saturday’s 1400 BST kick-off, with supporters back home also ready to cheer on Sven-Goran Eriksson’s side.
Steven Gerrard should start provided he has not aggravated a back injury, while Paraguay striker Roque Santa Cruz has declared himself fit to play.
Eriksson has said to the Press he wants a win “to send a message to other teams“.
So a good interest at the back for all United fans!!!
