their year. Not is. This is the bit that you guys always seem to miss.
England go into tournaments trying to win them. Ireland should as well. Otherwise what is the point of turning up? If the expectation was to win then Terry Venables and Bobby Robson wouldn't have been national heroes after making semi finals.
England are miles behind Spain, Germany and Holland. But these are knock-out cup competitions. All 16 teams in the Euros have a chance of winning them.
