Got this joke sent very quick

This World Cup is working out like WW2 - France have forfeited, the USA turned up late, and England are left to fight the Germans!

So one of Uruguay, South Korea, USA or Ghana will be a semi-finalist. And one of England, Germany, Argentina and Mexico will be a semi-finalist. Quite funny. Now wait for Netherlands, Italy, Spain and Brazil to end up in a quartet as well.

Not overly bothered who wins tbh, Germany are probably my favourite team in the tournament, but the fact that I am English means I will have to give my primary support to England...should be an amusing spectacle though. Am dreading the amount of 1966 references going through the roof though.

I'll actually be supporting England, as much fun it would be to wind up English fans...I really support England in most things, so go Rooney. Obviously delighted it's the English facing Germany instead of US, but how awesome would a US-England final be (not that I expect either team to make it but still)?

Argentina will probably beat the winner of England/German so they are through to the semis... Although if USA beat Ghana, IMO they have a very real chance of beating uruguay or south korea to reach the semis too. Obviously rooting for South Korea there...

Obviously I'm optimistic about us being able to score on Uruguay...

Nice draw. Two sides with totally odious support, one to go home early. Hope it's the Germs, they already celebrated winning the World Cup last night. Plus Beckenbauer might shut up for five minutes.

Yeah, it seems everywhere I turn in this WC Beckenbauer is going on about something or another.

Actually quite confident about the Germany game. They looked awesome against Australia but I've seen very little since then. 5-0 England.

I'm not sure GIMH, I thought England were still desperately poor yesterday, apart from that 15 minute spell where they actually passed the ball and created chances. I'm thinking Germany will go through...

As much as I love Ozil and this German team, the prospect of Diego against the Poms again is just too good to be true. This needs to happen.

I thought we were pretty good throughout the first half tbh. Second half was a bit flat and I don't think there was enough of a push for a second goal and with it first place. Definitely going in the right direction though and that's the main thing. The real business starts now and I can see us stepping it up.
