    Yeah, would be brilliant.

    Anyone got Mazhar Majeed's number? Let's get on this.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    If it's Ireland or the Netherlands doubtless England will cherry pick the cream of the talent and they'll be back to square one.

    It's an infintesimally small chance, but still a chance. Kenya made the semis in 2003 after all.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    They were quite lucky though, a number of teams forfeited matches against them.

    I don't know if you said this tongue in cheek, but how would England cherry pick Dutch players?

    Give 'em a passport and get 'em onboard. They already play here as non-overseas players (well RtD & Kerveezee (sp?) do) and once they've completed 5 years residence they qualify for a UK passport.

    It's already happened with the Danish-born Amjad Khan.

    Tongue was firmly in cheek, however.

    It would be amazing, regardless of what team even becoming runners up would change the landscape of cricket forever.


    it could possibly be one of the best things to happen to cricket as a whole.

    soccer realised this decades ago, build the game in every nook and cranny and they'll come and come to make a diffence.

    -1982 - In the World Cup, newcomers Algeria registered the second victory in the tournament by an African side, when they defeated two-time world champions West Germany 2–1.

    - 1990 - In the World Cup, Cameroon defeated the holding champions Argentina in the opening match 1–0, and became the first African team to reach the quarter-finals.

    - 2002 - In the World Cup opening match, Senegal defeated defending champions France 1–0. The French subsequently left the competition in the first round, winless and goalless

    and of course my favorite little ole NZ is undefeated after the 2010 world cup. in the process drawing 1 - 1 with world champoins Italy

    And in spite of all that "progress" no African side has even made the semi finals in world cups yet.

    Still reckon football is more prone to upsets as well as it is a shorter game (other reasons too but lets not turn it into a cricket vs. football debate) but what is the 'worst' team to ever win the football world cup?
    Direbirds FTW!
