England won't be playing Brazil (yet)

Writing about web page http://www.fifaworldcup.com

Well good old Uncle Sepp has handed England a boost before the World Cup, ranking us 2nd behind Brazil. That we are (on average) 6 places behind Brazil has not been touched on, but hey.

Holland has been screwed over by not reaching Japan/Korea, thus placing 15th overall for their WC points and sees them unseeded despite being consistently ranked higher than all of the seeds bar Argentina, Brazil and France (who don't count anyway).

All around this is great news for England as we shouldn't fear anybody from pots 2 or 4. Bad news for Serbia & Montenegro who know that they will face either Brazil, Argentina or Mexico in their group in June.

Finally, my dream Group:
England, Poland, Togo, Trinidad & Tobago.

    I wouldn't be worried about Mexico if I were Serbia & Montenegro, they're only seeded because they beat consistently rubbish teams all the time all year round

  2. This is why the US being seeded would have been a travesty too…

    We will draw Holland. It is inevitably inevitable.

  4. I suspect that we'll draw Holland or the Czech Republic and then be paired up with the group that contains Brazil and the other of those two…

  5. Well the draws tomorrow.

    Dont know what to expect really. It still seems so far away and I'm more worried about Liverpools champions league draw next week.

    If we can avoid Holland, the Czech Republic and the USA then I think that we'll at least get out of the group. After that is always a lottery
