    Last 2 tournaments (WC 2010 and Euro 2008), I'd say they've been re-building. Nobody expected them to come 3rd at the World Cup since they had such a young team. But mark my words, that team will be one of the teams to watch next summer at the Euros, and at the next WC in 2014. They have a lot of good young players mixed in with experience.

    Nah Spain have clearly been the best Team in the World these past four years and cant see in changing for a while.

    Brazil before that.


    Maybe Germany should of won the world cup when they hosted it but an old team.

    If you wanna talk chokers look at Argentina

    no,their biggest problem has been inadequate coaches and horribly selected tournament squads.Look at FWC2010,cambiasso and Zanetti were worldclass for Inter in their treble winning season,Zanetti had Messi in his pocket in the UCL semi's,but get overlooked for Colocini and Jonas who were playing in the Coke League for Newcastle.

    Fixed for accuracy.

    I think England should get biggest chokers award.
    4 semi finals in 20 appearences (thats world cup and euro champs)
    and only 1 title out of those 4.

    Holland also choke quite a bit, as well as france

    Frances record:
    1998: won
    2002:didn't score a goal
    2006: final
    2010: did stupidly bad

    Fun Fact: faced Uruguay in 2002 and 2010 and both finish 0-0, also had an african team in both (Senegal and South Africa) and played bad against both. In short France up and down every world cup

    England's win was at home,plus with some controversy.England have 2 massive problems,1 being the media pressure and media that overhypes expectations and over hypes certain players,England's seconf biggest problem is Emile Heskey,what rubbish.

    1990 and 1994,France didn't qualify!Speaking of France,should NZ win the World Cup(rugby union),would the chokers tag be passed on to France?Numerous final four appearances for the French.

    2010 France was funny,at least it overshadowed the fact that we were the first host not to make the second round!


    Ramon Domenech should coach Newcastle,what fun that would be!

    More to it then that. If that was the case everyone would win their own world cup. We were the best all round team in 66 and YES Eusebio was the best player in the world but England had the best team.

    We should of won the world cup as well a few years ago if it wasnt for 'The Hand of God'.


    France had some MAJOR issues. I mean they had ALOT of injuries going in and ALOT of French players are overated.(well now they are but 4 -6 years ago or more they werent.)

    Well, The Netherlands have overtaken them in the FIFA World rankings recently, and they also lost an international match against Italy last month, and very nearly lost against Chile the other night! They were 2-0 down at one point in that match, and it wasn't until Fabregas came off the bench and scored twice that they started to play.
    I think the pressure is getting to them.
