World Cup draw.

There ARE other teams(we'd have no-one to play otherwise) and here's where all-comers can discuss the wider world of football......

World Cup draw.

Out of the possibilities I reckon best possible draw would be:
Belgium, England, Iran, Saudi Arabia.
It'd give some splendid international political value too.

Worst case:
Argentina (or Brazil), England, Sweden (or Denmark), Nigeria.

Calculations surrounding the continental allocation limits indicate that the worst case is twice as likely as the best.

Out of Pot 1 I'd rather have Poland, or Russia than Belgium

On the field I reckon they'd be easier opponents. However, I was taking into account the utter fxckin lunatics associated with them off field. That swayed my ranking.

I suspect for England and their manager those are the very worst kind of games!

You're probably right.
