Rooney & Roy: Hoping to plot a route past Italy

Rooney & Roy: Hoping to plot a route past Italy

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.

air play to the lad. I'd like to think I 'd have no fear of heading off to the other side of the world to coach, but in truth, I don't have the cajones. Hopefully he can make a decent living out of it.
