Confident that England can still make it out of the group

7:30am Thursday 19th June 2014

ENGLAND fan Darren Bungay is confident the Three Lions will still progress to the knockout stages.

Darren, 42, from Grove, allowed his 11-year-old son Richard, and his two school friends to stay up late for Saturday’s 11pm showdown with Italy, which ended in a 2-1 defeat.

He said: “I thought England played well but left themselves a little bit open at the back. I can see us beating both Uruguay and Costa Rica.

“My sister-in-law’s husband is Italian and they live in Australia so were were in touch all of Saturday night on Skype – but we didn’t speak much after the game.”
