Spurs legend Graham Roberts says the loss of Steven Gerrard could well hamper England's World Cup hopes and insists that, with him, Eriksson's men had a big chance of success.
Our former enforcer feels that England do not possess a player to stand in for the Liverpool youngster and that the balance of the squad is not quite right. He does, however, believe England could still reach the second phase.
He insists that Sven Goran Eriksson must be given time to develop his squad as he has 'fantastic players coming through' and injuries have hindered preparations this time around.
As far as tips for the tournament go, Roberts says everyone must fear Brazil and should not write them off.
