    England, Belgium, Tunisia and Panama. Should sail through in second.

    Disappointing lack of a Group of Death.

    Gropu E looks as close as we got. Wherever Serbia ended up would always look the stiffest one though.

    England’s R16 game against Poland Colombia Senegal or Japan. Serious opportunity for them.

    Aye, though having been in Serbia’s qualifying group they’re pretty terrible in practice. Group D is alright too if Nigeria get a decent side together. A and H are tight-but-shite.

    Yeah and a quarter final exit would keep everyone happy and Southgate would get time to bring more youngsters in in the next campaign.

    Argentina and Nigeria always get drawn in the same group.

    England always go on about bringing youngsters in, then gets to the World Cup and there'll be Joe Hart, Cahill, Henderson etc. stinking up the place. Although to be fair there'll be young players in the team by default.

    Not as bad as some draws we’ve had. Never easy for our blokes but there’s a bit of hope with this group I guess.

    Yeah it’s not the worst to have a decent third team because it means your rivals can take points off each other. If France beat everyone then one win and a decent goal difference might see you over the line. Whereas if you’re stuck with something like Spain, Portugal, Iran then there’s a decent chance you end up needing 7 points.

    Though really the big difference is whether you get Russia/Poland or anyone else as the first seed.

    Serious opportunity to get humbled and embarrassed with the world watching.
