World Cup draw tomorrow (1st April) 07:29 - Mar 31 with 919 viewstractordownsouth

The seedlings have been confirmed, good to see England back in pot 1. Whatever the group is, they should be confident of getting to the top 2 but I’d say the easiest potential group would be:

England
Mexico
Tunisia
Saudi Arabia

Toughest

England
Germany
Senegal
Canada

Big thing is avoiding the Germans because they’re much stronger since they changed the manager. Looking forward to watching the draw though, I’m very much a nerd with this sort of thing.

Thanks for sharing - Qatar seeded in pot 1 for being hosts - guess everyone in pot 2 wants them.

I don’t think there’s ever been a weaker host nation. I can say that without fear of it biting me on the arse because England can’t play them in the groups.

It'll bite you on the arse if they beat us in the final...

I think easiest would be

England
USA or Mexico (have been watching them in qualifiers here in Canada and both are absolute garbage)
Iran
Saudi Arabia

Toughest
England
Netherlands
Senegal
Wales

Either would be manageable.

Yeah USA/Mexico could be easier than Croatia.

Thankfully your difficult group scenario won’t happen as there can only be 2 UEFA teams per group.

England's group is quite kind - Scotland/Wales will fancy themselves to qualify as well. If all goes to plan, it looks like an England v France QF which would be tough.

Funnily enough the toughest group actually looks like Group A, despite Qatar. Senegal, Netherlands and Ecuador are tough opponents and if Qatar get some dodgy FIFA refs they could be competitive too.

Really?

Group G or H look very competitive with all 4 in each group being decent.

Qatar and Ecuador are very average, Senegal could be decent, but were the best of a bad bunch at AFCON and Netherlands aren't great when Depay is their main player.

England have by far the easiest group, on paper and should qualify with complete ease. Their main danger is Wales/Scotland and that's purely down to the rivalry.

Poll: What will be announced first?

2 out of 3, not bad!

I said earlier today that England would get Wales/Scotland/Ukraine.

Poll: So what do we think will happen with MM and the Aston Villa job?
