David James shuts down BBC’s Rachel Burden with brilliant Ukraine-England fact
Former England goalkeeper David James quickly silenced BBC Breakfast host Rachel Burden after she made a prediction about England’s upcoming Ukraine UEFA European Football Championship match. Ms Burden praised the England defence and insisted both regulation time and extra time would amount to no goals. She added she believed that England would ultimately win on penalties.
Mr James dashed this prediction and noted that Ukraine has only managed to keep one clean sheet in their last 15 games.
He said: “Listening to you guys talking about it, the way that Gareth and the team have been speaking, they know they have just got to win the game.
“I’m not sure if Rachel is right with 90 minutes, nil-nil and penalties.
“I have got a bit more faith in Matt’s prediction of two-one.

Ms Burden then went into greater detail about her prediction and why she expected the match to end in penalties.
She said: “The fact that England has got this incredible defensive record, kept the clean sheet, we know Gareth Southgate likes to close things down as much as possible.
“I think that because of what is at stake here it could be very cagey.
“But I am weirdly confident that if it went to penalties England would win.”
The ex-England keeper hit back: “Interesting, just for the record Rachel, I think Ukraine have kept one clean sheet in the last 15 competitive matches.”
The BBC Breakfast hosts relented Mr James was showcasing his in-depth football knowledge in his own predictions.
