TEAMtalk Deputy Editor James Marshment takes on the hosting duties and is joined in the studio by Football 365 Editor Sarah Winterburn and Sky Sports.com football reporter Adam Bate.

The trio dissect England's victory over Ukraine but fear a lack of cover in central midfield could still bite England on the backside. Winterburn is wholesome in her praise of Steven Gerrard, but Bate thinks Ashley Young has far more to give after another 'out-of-sorts' display.

Sunday's clash with Italy quickly comes under the microscope, with Marshment and Winterburn both predicting the game to go to penalties, while Bate debates just how the Azzurri can be beaten.

We also explain how we expect the other quarter-final ties to pan out, while we

also try to get to the bottom of the disappointing showing from Giovanni Trapattoni's Ireland.

There is plenty more debated in a half-hour chat, so have a listen, then let us know your thoughts through the comment facility.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
