World Cup 2022

So, on the face of it, a pretty kind group draw for England, with the added bonus of a possible rival.

Group H possibly the most competitive,?

I'm not sure there are any other faces to it. It should be a walk through. There really can't be any excuses for that being in any way difficult for England. It's pretty hard to imagine who you'd have picked instead.

True.

We'll still somehow bodge it and scrape through in second....

Oh absolutely - England can play down to any opposition level. Amazing flexibility in that regard.

A very un-England start with a game we'd classically huff and puff and draw 0-0. Although the goals conceded were sloppy even if the pen was far less of a pen than the one on Maguire in the first half.

Formation looked good, lots of players in form and goals shared around. Thought USA looked decent though, their speed will cause our defence some issues I think.

Oh and Bellingham :mygod:

I really really want Germany to get through now.
