Time for a thread on this since the draw was just completed ... Had a feeling that the draw would place the winners of Scotland/Wales/Ukraine into the same group as England ... let the fun commence 🙂

  • Group A : Qatar, Ecuador, Senegal, Holland
  • Group B : England, Iran, United States, Wales/Ukraine/Scotland
  • Group C Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Poland
  • Group D : France, Peru/Australia/UAE, Denmark, Tunisia
  • Group E : Spain, New Zealand/Costa Rica, Germany, Japan
  • Group F : Belgium, Canada, Morocco, Croatia
  • Group G : Brazil, Serbia, Switzerland, Cameroon
  • Group H : Portugal, Ghana, Uruguay, South Korea

And the potential Scotland/England game is the last of the group so could be a decider. What's the bets that if we get in, that we go into that game, able to get through as long as we don't lose by 3 or more goals, and lose 4-1 with a last minute goal. Of course we have Iran in the group, and we all know how games against them go :getmecoat:

OK so got 5 months to get this wrong ... but here are my predictions for top 2 for each group

  • A : Netherlands, Senegal
  • B : England, Euro-Playoff (unless Scotland, then Rasczak scenario above comes into force and USA scrape in instead)
  • C : Argentina, Poland
  • D : France, Denmark
  • E : Spain, Germany
  • F : Belgium, Canada
  • G : Brazil, Serbia
  • H : Portugal, Uruguay

Gotta love the media down south !!! Already picking who they might play in the final !

Quote

England will face the United States, Iran, and either Scotland, Wales or Ukraine in the group stages of the 2022 Qatar World Cup later this year as they were handed a dream draw on Friday.

After being drawn in Group B they will face either hosts Qatar, Ecuador, Senegal or Holland (Group A) in the last 16. 

England are on the same side of the draw as France and so could face the world champions in the quarter-finals should they win their respective groups.

They could then come up against Belgium or Portugal in the semi-finals followed by Spain, Germany or Brazil in the final.

Quite an additional incentive to win our play off matches.

Not only the chance to beat the Auld enemy in a World Cup finals but a real possibility of getting out of the group stages for the first time ever.

England will almost certainly top the group but second place is up for grabs.

That said, it is still a scandal that the finals are taking place in Qatar both for moral human rights reasons and for logistical footballing reasons.

2 obvious errors in that quote but hey, nothing unusual...

Only a week now until the postponed qualifer againt Ukraine.

Usually when football fans complain that the whole World is against them it's sheer paranoia. However, next Wednesday it will be literally true and I suspect that, even subconsciously, the officials will be inclined to give 50/50 decisions in favour of Ukraine.

It will be a hard fought encounter with Ukraine understandably motivated like never before but, whilst every single one of us has huge sympathy for that benighted country, we need to put that aside and be just as motivated.

Great compassion and support for them in the stands but, for 90 minutes at least, letting none of it flow onto the pitch.
