Predictions for England - Mexico pre-World Cup friendly

Less than three weeks to go before World Cup 2010 starts and the friendlies are coming thick and fast. Here are my predictions for tonight’s game at Wembley.

England will put a 'really, really strong team' out, but, since none of the Chelsea contingent will be picked, we can be really, really sure the team will not be the best XI.

Rooney will operate as a lone striker supported by Gerrard for some part of the game.

The debate over the state of the Wembley pitch will continue when a mistimed tackle takes out half of Fabio Capello's coaching staff.

Jamie Carragher will be booed, whether he plays or not.

James Milner will cement his place in the first XI.

If selected, Glen Johnson will make a horrible defensive error.

There will be plenty of references to Man Utd’s new foreign signing.

There will be a Mexican Wave.

The clashes between Australia and New Zealand in Melbourne and Japan and South Korea in Saitama will be much more demanding. Watch out for some heartbreaking injuries as the tackles fly in.
