8 March 2015 : England will “shut up a few doubters” if they beat Bangladesh convincingly in their vital World Cup match, says former spinner Graeme Swann.

England, who have lost three of their four Pool A games, cannot reach the quarter-finals if they fail to win in Adelaide on Monday.

Swann upbeat on England chances

“This is their chance to really put their foot on the opposition and stamp all over them,” Swann told BBC Sport.

“If you’re an England fan, this is the biggest game of this World Cup.”

He added: “This is their chance to say, ‘We’re in this, we’re for real, we’ve got a chance of progressing through to the quarter-finals’.”

England have been beaten heavily by Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka, with their only victory of the tournament coming against minnows Scotland.

Even if England win their final two games – they face Afghanistan in Sydney on Friday – they will go out if Bangladesh overcome Pool A winners New Zealand earlier that day.
