Michael Owen: 'I hope we haven't underestimated the Swedes'


Fingers crossed for England tonight. Not convinced if we are playing a straight 4-4-2. May get away with it tonight but I'm sure the


manager will change the system against a top team. Just hope we haven't underestimated the Swedes. The last World Cup proved that even


against inferior teams, if you get the system wrong and lose the midfield battle then you are in trouble at this level.

England expects Andy Carroll's big moment

Andy Carroll for the Ox - the only change from the France game. No big surprise as it was leaked on twitter about 24 hours ago.

Essentially, England will play with two strikers upfront - Danny Welbeck and Carroll. A rare sight these days. Roy Hodgson bravely changing tactics and going for a win.

Some people think Carroll has yet to prove himself as a big game player. He cost Liverpool £35 million and many doubt he's worth that price tag. But towards the end of this season he started to show some form again.

Many hope the tall striker will cause problems for the Swedes. That includes the two cameramen with me here in Krakow - they've both put money on him to score.
