The defending champions must qualify rule did lead to a nice bit of irony for the next World Cup, what with the final of the last tournament being Brazil and Germany. I had a little chuckle at that.
Looking at the groups, I'd say the only struggle England face in their group is Sweden. Hopefully, we'll already be through to the next round before we play them, seeing how we ALWAYS seem to struggle against Sweden in major tournaments. I'll be happy with a semi-final finish, to be honest.
Heh. Honestly I didn't want to say much more because I can't remember any of these guys names and was too lazy to do the research. Thanks for picking up the ball. The Guida fight might be the closest we ever come to seeing a live action Street Fighter.
