    If there is a 'group of death' it's group b. Both finalists in 2010 and Chile with the runner up likely to face Brazil in the last 16 - OUCH!!

    I drew Argentina in my works throw a fiver in and pick a team draw... entonces VAMOS ARGENTINA!!!

    group D looks like death as well, I expect Italy and Uruguay to go through

    Agree it is a tough group... the thing they should be looking at is the seedings. Belgium and Colombia might be excellent teams but they haven't qualified for the finals since 98, their groups are laughable when you look at group B and D.

    Winners of the Copa America and runners up of Euro 12 in the same group along with another top 16 team is insane. Not to mention the two finalist of 2010 in the same group along with another top 16 team in Chile.

    Fixed to give some interesting group matches.

    What you are forgetting Robbie are England's secret weapons .
    Firstly, we have Norman Wisdom baffling the opposition's forwards with his tricks ( cunningly disguised as James Milner ), next we have Shrek with his sewn-on rug (on his head ) disguised as Wayne Rooney .
    The opposition have no chance , England all the way .
    As Alex Salmond said " I hope England win the world cup then the Scottish will hate England even more " ... Actually ,Roy Hodgson looks as though he just walked off the "thunderbirds "set .

    LOL, Rooney has lost his hunger and spends more time flapping his arms at the referee. Brazil were booed by their own fans after their 1-0 victory over Serbia! England may surprise us all.

    That's only if they both can win their groups. Easier for Argentina. Germany has Portugal.

    I should also add that if they both take 2nd in their groups that would work too.
