England's footballers play their first match in the World Cup tonight, against Italy.

The game takes place in the Brazilian city of Manaus where the temperature will be around 32C.

What do you think will be the result? Will England win, and by how many goals? Who do you think will score?

Or do you predict Italy will take victory and give England a bad start at the World Cup? Do you agree with Ronaldo the Newsround parrot?

I think that England will win 3-1 because they have really good players and I am sure Steven Gerrard will shoot a goal!

Tomas, Ireland

Personally I am very patriotic but previously Italy has won the World Cup four times. So if England want to win, they need to play hard.

Amina, Bradford, England

I think England will win because they have great young players and great old players and they have lots of pace so the Italians won't catch them.

Kaif, London, England

Of course they will! They just have to believe in themselves. GO ENGLAND!

I think Italy will win 3-1 or something like that.

I think England is in with a chance of winning because lately Italy hasn't been playing its best.
