Steven Gerrard insists that he and his English international colleagues have a great chance of glory this summer at Euro 2008.

"The lads are confident", said the scouser. "We know we can beat anyone on our day".

"Individually, we're better than anyone", asserted Rio Ferdinand. "We just need that bit of luck."

"When I look at our squad and the kind of world class players around me, anything less than the final would be a disappointment", opined Michael Owen. "There are a host of nations who wish they had the players that we have."

"Germany, Italy and France can play all the football they want", averred a positive David Bentley. "It doesn't matter because we're England. We invented the game for goodness sake."

"We're not scared of anyone. If anything, they should be scared of us", declared a defiant John Terry.

"We've got a great chance. It's time for the golden generation to show the world what we can do", stated Frank Lampard.

I then left them playing the Euro 2008 video game on their Xboxes as I had to catch a plane to Switzerland.
