England lived up to forecast

I said a couple of weeks ago before the World Cup started that I didn't think England would win a game this summer.

It was just a feeling that I got and, while they have been a bit unlucky, that has proven to be the case and they crashed out at the group stage.

They had chances to take something in all the games, but I felt the balance wasn't right for them and it wasn't a good tournament for Roy Hodgson's side.

We are into the quarter-finals now and I am going to stick with my original tip of Brazil to lift the cup.

Neymar has really come to the fore and is coming up with the goods for them just in time for the quarter-finals.
