The Armada was to sail down the channel with some troops on board and it was supposed to pick up the main force who were in the Netherlands. The army was then to cross the channel and engage Elizabeth's forces. It is believed that Philip didn't think he would be able to take England but would rather force Elizabeth to negotiate so Philip could get the two things he wanted. 1 Her to stop helping the rebels in the Netherlands 2 Stop carrying out piracy on his ships.
