As our footballers have no chance of progressing in next year,s World Cup, should we give up our place to Sweden who would seem to have more chance based on last week,s showing against Portugal .

They had no chance of winning it in 1966 and were we proved wrong.

We will have little chance of lifting the 2014 world cup but after our slim victory ( away goals ) against Burkina Faso we are going to compete. I do not understand the attitude of some who always look on the gloomy side. Yes your team may have little chance but it like ours they will be playing with some of the best footballers in the world. For those teams who did not get to the finals that is the nature of the nock out system.

Will you also scrap your rugby union and leauge teams. Bring home your cricket team from Australia. Stop all English from playing tennis and golf.

Watching bits and pieces of their last two game they spend about 60% of time passing the ball backwards towards their own goal.(maybe more than 60% just guessing). Now everyone knows that you can't score goals going back the way hence the complete lack of shots at goal in the whole match.

I think they have the makings of a good side but we will never know if they keep playing the way that they do.

Where will they finish in the world cup, my guess would be 8th the way they are playing just now. Step it up a bit and you never know.

Algerian peter, because, at times, humour can be appreciated. It's sport we're talking about not the end of the world.

I'm in the minority here but I appreciated your post for what it was meant to be iscanut2. A leg pull.

Don't bother again if I were you.

Thanks rdave. Surely anyone would realise that my suggestion would have been totally impossible. You do wonder about some people having had a sense of humour bypass !
