    Road to Brazil 2014

    European draw just taken place. England just avoid the French at the death:

    Group A: Croatia, Serbia, Belgium, SCOTLAND, Macedonia, WALES
    Group B: Italy, Denmark, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Armenia, Malta.
    Group C: Germamy, Sweden, R of Ireland, Austria, Faroe Is, K'stan.
    Group D: Netherlands, Turkey, Hungary, Romania, Estonia, Andorra.
    Group E: Norway, Slovenia, Switzerland, Albania, Cyprus, Iceland.
    Group F: Portugal, Russia, Israel, N IRELAND, Azerbaijan, L'bourg
    Group G: Greece, Slovakia, Bosnia-H, Lithuania, Latvia, Lichtenstein
    Group H: ENGLAND, Montenegro, Ukraine, Poland, Moldova, S Marino
    Group I: Spain, France, Belarus, Georgia, Finland

    England 16/1 to win the thing; as long odds as I can remember for it. Even the patriotic punters factoring in the "Harry" factor it seems.

    Groups E and G are ridiculously weak.

    Calling Belgium to win our group. Got a lot of talented kids at the moment.

    Hard to disagree. Switzerland probably favourites in E from pot three.

    That means the Oceania champions – this will be the All Whites barring a miracle from one of the Pacific Island teams – will face off against the fourth-ranked Concacaf team in a home-and-away playoff to qualify for Brazil.

    Honduras, who New Zealand drew 1-1 with in Auckland last year, are currently the fourth-best team in Concacaf at 51st in the world, followed by Costa Rica, Panama, El Salvador and Trinidad and Tobago.

    Interesting that the Philippines are already eliminated by the time the Euro draw for qualification is announced. Knocked out by Kuwait.

    ***Official*** Road to World Cup 2014

    Hadn't realised the World Cup 2014 groups had been drawn months ago. Looks like there's a big differential in the groups, some very easy ones and some very tough ones. Groups E and G are laughably bad. England's group looks tricky but it's the sort of one where there's a bunch of teams below that should all knock plenty of points off each other, so in reality there should be quite a margin for error. Scotland and Wales could have quite an interesting time, would be nice if one of them could really compete for qualifying. Ireland have another really tough group. - 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil?

    Elm, he do brood. And Oak, he do hate. But the Willow-man goes walking, If you stays out late.
    I swear England end up playing these teams every time they have to qualify for anything ever.

    Got to love Moldova though, one of the few states in the world which proudly claims crime makes up a considerable part of it's economy.

    Really think Wales will do well, their midfield looks particularly young and exciting, better than Englands potentially.
