THIS IS it - at last the speculation stops, and England's World Cup campaign begins.

Manager Sven Goran Eriksson will be looking to end his reign on a high note, but Paraguay, England's first group opponents, will not give them an easy ride.

BBC anchor man Gary Lineker has first-hand experience of the South Americans - he scored twice against them in the 1986 finals in Mexico.

Another old hand, John Motson, provides the commentary, while Alan Hanson, Alan Shearer, Martin O'Neill, and Mark Lawrenson, summarise.
