Ok So.....will 2010 be as glorious a year as 1966 ?
In other words can England win the 2010 FIFA world cup ?
My view: yes they can and I have a funny feeling they will.
Always risky to read too much into the qualification process but England look pretty impressive and if their key guys can stay fit, I can't see them not making the semis at least.
And they actually have a decent tactician at the helm for the first time in yonks.
Challengers : Spain obviously and Brazil can never be ruled out.
Would be pretty surprised if the winner's other than one of those three. There's always a surprise packet in the WC but I can't really see anyone else going the distance.
