The only reason they defended Brasil so well was because they dropped 8 or 9 guys back into their defensive third. That's why they couldn't score.

So far England's defense has been good. And dare I say it, I like how Ze Roberto is working for the Brasilian defense, although the rest of the guys aren't doing so great, especially Juan and Lucio.

Ze Roberto played a fantastic game today. He made more defensive plays than the whole back line combined.

England on paper maybe, but not in the games we've seen(Sweden).

Italy also should be solid. Take away an own goal and they're clean at the back for goal's against. Although they only had one game that they should've been tested at all.

Brasil haven't been really tested, neither have the Argentinians.

Hard to say right now, wait for the round of 16.
