The 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification


#1790

Obviously England will get Poland as per fucking usual.


#1791

I actually wouldn’t mind any of those teams in pot 4, bar Australia of course - i’m quaking in my boots at the thought of facing King Jedinak :grin:


#1792

Fear the beard


#1793

Draw takes place today, any draw for Australia will be hard but hopefully it’s not to savage towards us.


#1794

I’ll be booking my tickets to Russia almost immediately after this is done.


#1795

In the rehearsal, England were drawn in the same group as Brazil, Morocco and Denmark. I wouldn’t fancy that to be honest.


#1796

I would be incredibly happy if we drew England.


#1797

I predict England will get Germany, iceland and Serbia


#1798

Brazil, Denmark, Japan.


#1799

We can’t. Only a max of two European teams in each group.

“Nobody can be drawn in the same group as anyone from the same continent (except UEFA, can have max 2 teams per group).”


#1800

Ah didn’t know that. Oh well will get some crap group then


#1801

I never actually knew this rule existed! Let’s hope the one European team is Portugal or Russia :crossed_fingers:


#1802

Could easily be Spain and France and England and Germany together. Image it!


#1803

World Cup draw live on BBC 2 for those in the UK


#1804

I like how the BBC have only scheduled an hour and a half for it. That’s optimistic.


#1805

Shearer talking crap yet again I see


#1806

Shearer thinks our group of death would be Poland, Iran and Panama :rofl:


#1807

i think most groups could be Englands group of death, considering how shit we have been recently not even been able to beat minnows.


#1808

True. Shearer explained his choice by saying that we are better against big teams and struggle against smaller nations.

I guess going out of a tough group is less embarrassing than losing to Iran and Panama.


#1809

An enjoyable group for you @SRCJJ man! In with Spain, Portugal and Iran!

I’ll settle with England’s group tbh
