World Cup finals draw 13:28 - Nov 16 with 2656 viewsSuperfrans

Takes place on December 1.
Who do we fancy in the draw? One team from each pot.

Pot 1: Russia, Germany, Brazil, Portugal, Argentina, Belgium, Poland, France
Pot 2: Spain, Peru, Switzerland, England, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay, Croatia
Pot 3: Denmark, Iceland, Costa Rica, Sweden, Tunisia, Egypt, Senegal, Iran
Pot 4: Serbia, Nigeria, Australia, Japan, Morocco, Panama, South Korea, Saudi Arabia

For me, best draw would be: Russia, England, Iran, Australia.
Worst draw: Brazil, England, Iceland, Serbia.

I think we all know we're going to get knocked out by Sweden in the last 16, so it's irrelevant with who we get in the group.

Poll: If we was given the option to sign 1 of these permanently, who would it be?

Not sure I’d fancy Russia purely as on home soil. Plus I wouldn’t mind Iceland actually, you would hope lightning doesn’t strike twice

For me:
Best - Poland, Iran and Panama
Worst - Germany, Sweden and Serbia (not sure it’s actually possible to have 4 Euro teams in which case sub Brazil in for Germany)

I think the only team England could beat from pot 1 is Russia. So hopefully them.

Spain would beat us in pot 2. Uruguay are not the team they were so is winnable. Same with Colombia. Don't know much about Peru. That suggests we should beat them. The Swiss, Mexico and Croatia we can win but they could quite easily win themselves. 50/50 games.

Sweden would be a tough game and best if avoided. Denmark, Egypt and Iceland are potential banan skins. We should be beating Costa Rica, Tunisia, Senegal and Iran.

Pot 4 is full of sides that would sit back for a point and England should be beating. The only one I'd say could be tricky in a group stage game from that lot is Nigeria. They look a useful team this time around. I'd want the Aussies or Morocco if I had a choice.





Ideal - Russia, Costa Rica and Morocco


Worst case - Germany, Sweden and Nigeria

Whoever we get we'll scrape through to last 16, then fail miserably

Realistically, unless we get... on 14:16 - Nov 16 with 1252 viewsBloots

....Russia or Poland out of pot 1, then we are going to struggle to qualify.

Poland would still be a problem to be honest.

why are spain in pot 2?


Pot 2 looks pretty strong.. As does majority of Pot 3 for that matter.

There is going to be the "Group of Death" or whatever they label it as that will probably have the 'best' of the 2nd and 3rd pot.

I'd love us to avoid Sweden and would be happy to get the chance to beat Australia in any sport. Portugal, Iran, Australia if I could pick them myself

Didn't really clock that. That's bonkers, isn't it.

At least we won't play them... until later in the tournament.
Just weird not to have Italy there.

You fear way too many sides. Not saying we're world beaters but we shouldn't fear anyone in pots 3 or 4. There are better sides like Denmark but we should be beating them. If we can't then we have no business in the knockout stages.
