Haha, can't wait to see England vs Uruguay.
What I'm less looking forward to is the stupid ITV/BBC pundits expressing shock at how our amazing mighty team of talented players has been beaten by this small nation from South America. Or putting it all down to Suarez.
Anyway, should have thought that's England out. Playing against Italy and two South American sides in extreme humidity/heat? Good luck with that.
Yeah England are gone.
Australia got a fine group...
So who nobbles Suarez before the end of the season then?
We are toast, finish bottom of the group I reckon.
Belgium is the worse one as like Colombia their ranking is based upon only a recent upturn but unlike Colombia, Belgium were in a piss easy qualification group.

So football's coming home.
After 3 matches.
People being a bit over-pessimistic in this thread. Because of there being two qualification spots from the group you can be the third best team in the group and yet still more likely to qualify than not, which is exactly how it is on Betfair - England are 1.7 to qualify, which is still longer than Italy and Uruguay. Think this is still wrong anyway as the market tends to overrate Italy; they haven't been very good for a while now. Wouldn't even have them above England tbh, let alone Uruguay given it's in South America. Costa Rica at 12s to qualify looks the value to me.
Don't see how they are not above England. Final of Euros and had little trouble quailfying.
Looks like our pathway to the second round is easily assured then
Someone nobble Van Persie and we will smack Netherlands, can see a noble draw against Spain and we will flog Chile.
They had little trouble qualifying but in much the same way as Belgium had little trouble. They had a piss easy group and were pretty uninspiring in their way out of it. They had a worse record than England did in qualification (if we go down to seperating on goal difference) against considerably worse opposition.
Daniel Brettig: "Siddle is the vital glue for a bowling attack that needs experience and consistency to balance the talent of Hazlewood, Starc, James Pattinson and Pat Cummins. Hopefully Lehmann and company will now remember this"
Had been hoping we'd draw England this time around, if for nothing else then the massive rivalry, as N00fers said. Te draw we have is a nightmare. We'll be lucky to salvage a point.
I feel as though we are up against the best team from each pool. The killer is having Chile, if say it was Cameroon or perhaps Algeria, we play them first up and getting 3 points from that game would apply heaps of pressure on Spain+Netherlands. This way, its likely that Chile supporters will have those thoughts if they can beat Australia.
Haha just seen the whole draw. Australia's group is ridiculous.
