The Big Event

Next summer the World Cup Finals will be held in Africa for the first time. In about two hours, the draw will take place. This will determine who England and the USA play in the group stage and who possible opponents will be in the knock-out rounds. I am in denial at the moment, still hoping for England success despite forty three years of hurt and evidence to the contrary. When reality bites and England go out, probably in the Quarter Finals on penalties to Portugal, Germany, or Argentina, I shall switch my support to ABG (anyone but Germany). Germany continue to have teams who over-achieve and do so playing dull uninspired football. This tournament I may go as far as supporting ABGoF, (anyone but Germany or France) after the nature of the French victory over Ireland in the play-off.


No European team has ever won a World Cup held outside Europe, so Brazil must start as favourites, although if Spain can reproduce their form of two years ago they could be Europe’s best chance.
