England in Group H with some 'regulars'

England came out in group H of the draw for qualifying for the 2014 world cup in Brazil, and we will face Montenegro, Ukraine, Poland, Moldova and San Marino as a result.



From Vital England:



The draw for the 2014 world cup qualifiers has been made, and England will come up against some familiar opponents...



With France failing to secure a spot among the 'top seeds' the media frenzy was that we could have been drawn against the 1998 winners?



Why worry though, if we had drawn them we had drawn them - simples! As it happens we did not, they went into group I with Spain...



Drawn into group H we will face Montenegro, Ukraine, Poland, Moldova and San Marino.



Of course this is not an 'easy group' at all although it is one that we would be 'expected' to top, thus qualify for Brazil automatically - and under a new, and hopefully better, manager we can make sure we do this as we seek to rebuild our reputation...

Until Capello leaves im not bothered , Im an England fan and will always watch them , but until an English manager comes in Capello will never have my full support , hes clueless ! , you want to look to the bench and have a passionate man there telling you to pull your finger out , not someone waving about like his pizza has turned up cold !

Capello was just the latst in a line of England managers,that found out how good the "Golden Generation" looked when they didn't have their foreign club-mates round them.As for the group, it looks like the group we're always in!

capello hasnt got a clue fullstop.one of the worst england managers weve had and thats saying something.would rather see sven with his big fodder and constant erection back in charge than that muppet.sack him now i say and let redknapp have his chance!!!!!!!

How boring. I have not watched a single England game since the last World Cup (when Jarvis played I was at work and settled for the highlights) and this draw does little to inspire. Initially after our dismal effort I imposed an 8 match ban upon myself which I think I extended by two further games when he played Carlton Cole. Should have gone the minute his Gucci sandles touched down in London. Harry indeed. Deserves it, and the way the game is going it will be a last chance for most of us to watch a proper manager in charge of our collective hopes. Black Daniels, you have just cracked me up: "would rather see Sven with his big fodder and constant erection back." Funniest comment of pre-season award sir.

At least players like Carlton Cole want to play for England, unlike the other lot who always pull out quickly (unlike in their social lives).

It's a bugger being a senior citizen for, apart from being 'one day closer to death' (copyright: Pink Floyd), one can remember the really good times. So, just as I can recall the glory days at Molineux in the 1950s, I can remember the 1966 World Cup final (but not how many pints of Banks's Bitter I drank). I do support the English soccer team (over the years the Welsh side has lamently failed to reach the heights it achieved in my youth) but cannot get that worked up about its fortunes. Apart from the the dashed hopes, the missed penalties, the poor performances and the worse managers, supporting WW drains me of all nervous energy. I would much rather WW survived, let alone prospered, in the PL than witness the national team have a good World Cup run, even to the point of overall success. Naturally, if the latter were to happen, I would be just as much involved in the action, heart in my mouth, as any other supporter.

Hahaha like it Akela , I think out of the so called big names Gerrard is the only one who always gives his all , Just never played in the position where he hurts other teams , in other words let him play wherever he likes ! , as an all round player Gerrard when fit along with Rooney ( who finally looks like the player we all know he can become ) is by far the best all round player England have , Lampard ohhh please , Wilshere has shown him how to play the role , Im thinking of a side with the an English manager for the World cup finals if we get there , As a 4-2-3-1 we could have Hart , Richards , Gibbs , Cahill , Smalling , Jones & Gerrard holding , Wilshere , Rooney , Young , Carroll , I include Gerrard as i think he still will have a last hurrah , and with his ability he will do the holding role with ease , I have been wanting us to play this formation forever but it took Capello god knows how long to get over 4-4-2 isn't the way at international level !!!

I don't think 4-4-2 as we know it is the best way to go regardless. I find it stale, flat and predictable. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed watching our national side play; the World Cup was a terror- then again, little did I know what my beloved Wolves would put me through! The game must come with a health warning!
