Hi, Is Benzema career over at Real Madrid? I ask this because he has not been playing well since last season. Has this got anything to do with the position France find themselves in right now?
Apologies for being off-topic but unfortunately we’re unable to comment on the Rumour Mill*. I’m a bit concerned about today’s rumour that Berba might be sold to Barcelona. Do you know anything more about the deal? If it’s true? What the offer is? Is it cash or just a straight swap for Messi? I need to know.
*Do you have any idea why this is?
Do you think its counterproductive to talk about penalty shootouts all the time! The World Cup draw hasn't been made yet and the English media are already worrying about it. It's no wonder we never win them the players are probably petrified already.
Who are the perceived troublemakers within the France squad? I assume Evra given some of the comments he has had for others recently but am interested to know which other players are seen as those causing problems.
Amy, is anyone in the media calling for Tom 'The Hair' Huddlestone to be in the squad? His had a great season so far and is the only other Carrick type player we have in England which i feel we really need otherwise its just backwards and side to side
Baines or Cole at left-back – and why?
Amy, do you play football, for a women's team? If so how are you doing this season?
On a general level, what's the solution to France? If they fail to turn it around tonight, are we going to see a massive purge of the older stars in preparation for building a team for 2016? And who would take on the responsibility of managing them? I can't see Garcia or Girard taking the job at the moment. Whisper it quietly, but... could Wenger be tempted?
Do you think Dave Reddin will have an impact when he starts working with England after Christmas? He only has two days with England before their Denmark friendly. You can't surely hope to change a team's psychology in two days!
From a purely subjective point of view, who would you rather have at the World Cup? Ibrahimovic and Sweden or Ronaldo and Portugal? I suppose it's Ibrahimovic's last chance to perform at a World Cup, and it would be great to see him finally do so. On the other hand, Ronaldo is perhaps the best player in the world and in his absolute prime. I think there'd be the exciting prospect of one incredible player dragging an otherwise average team all the way to the final.
Hi Amy. I'd like to know what you think of Andros Townsend in the England squad. He's recieved a huge amount of praise this season, but I've watched a lot of Tottenham so far and I'm not impressed in the slightest. He seems incapable of actually thinking whatsoever, and just repeating the same "cut-inside" and shoot, and his shot-to-goal ratio is awful too. Surely if he's to go to the World Cup, any half-decent team would neutralise him with minimal effort. Is his useful period over now we've finished with the lower quality stage of this tournament?
How important are these friendliest so far in advance of the event?
I'll be watching the France v Ukraine game. Can't believe France are in danger of not making the finals with so much talent to call on.
Hi Amy. Do you secretly hope Lallana has a stinker and gets hammered by the press, completely destroying his confidence? I only ask because of Arsenal's tricky fixture at the weekend.
Who would be your ideal qualifiers from tonight's games? I think it's something of a loss to not have France at any major tournament; always good for a bit of drama!
Amy, has everybody who you think is likely to be included in the England squad been given a chance now? Is there anybody who you think will play themselves into the squad with an amazing second half of the season, like a surprise Theo Walcott from 2006?
If France get knocked out by Ukraine tonight, will that be a good thing?
Hi Amy. If France fail to qualify, does that necessarily mean Deschamps will get the chop? And if so, who could the FFF turn to? I doubt Garcia and Wenger would want to leave club football just yet.
These Germans have been incredibly gracious about England. They're a far superior team however so you'd expect them to win. HOWEVER it's a friendly, so for all those who got their knickers in a twist with their doom and gloom after the Chile match, need to realize that random results can happen. England did beat Brazil at Wembley after all. Just don't read to much into it if they do win.
What do you make of the reports saying Benzema will start in place of Giroud? Am I the only one who thinks they would make an excellent partnership? I know it would necessitate a change of their formation but... so what? Do France really need to play someone in the 'Nasri' position (making countless two-yard passes that go nowhere)?
After watching the first leg of Portugal v Sweden, I can't believe Portugal are again favourites to beat Sweden. Has there ever been a team that has been more reliant on one player than Portugal? The rest of the team were average at best. I'm fully expecting to see Sweden qualify now and it would be a travesty if they don't. The cameramen need something to focus on in breaks of play.

Good afternoon Amy. Don't you think England should play a high pressing style of football in the same way that Southampton do? I think it would unsettle and surprise alot of teams.
Amy! I've got a free day! What games should I be watching today and when are they on?
Tonight the Guardian will have streams of three matches:
Romania v Greece
Croatia v Iceland
France v Ukraine
And minute by minute coverage of three matches:
England v Germany
Sweden v Portugal
France v Ukraine
Do England fans actually think that Germany considers them rivals? Us neutrals do find it quite amusing when the national media try and talk England up as Germany's rivals. They're not even close.
Amy will be online from midday, but in the meantime here are some of our international football previews:
