Romania: Manager Anghel Iordanescu (at 66 yrs old, we hope he makes it through the tournament) It can’t be easy managing Romania!!

Players to watch:

England: Kane, Sturridge, Vardy

Group F:

Players to watch:

Portugal: Ronaldo, W. Carvallho, Pepe (not because Pepe is good, but because he is a player with an awful temper and will no doubt be sent off)

Hungary: (We are starved of info on Hungary, we have zero knowledge of Hungarian football and we are not about to pretend we do either)
