IF we beat Costa Rica
My local Coral bookies are offering a 200/1 that England will Qualify...In order for that too happen Italy will need to beat Uruguay by atleast 2 goals, and England will need to beat Costa Rica by 3 goals.
I stuck £1 down on that. If I lose, meh, if I win, Wahey!
IF we beat Costa Rica
I just read a classic tweet on the Joe Coral website (looking for that bet of @nephilim's)...........
England have waited years to 'play like Spain' and during this World Cup they've finally achieved it....
coral's online only offer 7/1 on England qualifying so something strange there? 125/1 to win the cup :-)

200-1, that cannot be right, the best odds I've found are 13-2..... There wouldn't be that big a difference
Have scanned the thread and don't think anyone has posted this up yet; I think Chris Waddle has hit the issue perfectly on the head
BBC Radio 5 live - In Short, Waddle on England: 'We never ever, ever learn'
We need the injection of some South American Flair / Spanish League Flair (Not Spanish National Team), less route 1/long balls that don't come off, more quick & short passes to build up the play with good movement, English football should be exciting not dull !

*edit* it was a typo, was not 200-1, was meant to be 20-1
However we are still a team of individuals; when these players go back to their clubs this season the majority will play great it's frustrating to see the lack of cohesion when they pull on the 3 lions shirt.
I was gutted to read a few weeks back about Josť Mourinho not going for the England job due to his wife's advice !
Yes he is not everything but that is a major figure to have in your dressing room/training pitch and on the sidelines
The trouble is, unlike the German Squad or the Spanish Squad or any other squad, England don't train enough together. The Germans and Spanish do 1 friendly a month in the down time (year after world cup or euros), England doesn't. In the run up, along side the qualifying games, they'll also throw friendlies into the mix. England rarely does.
GD: Uruguay -1, England, -2, Costa Rica + 2
If Italy beat Uruguay by one goal then Uruguay GD = -2. Therefore if we win against Costa Rica we won't be bottom (as we would have to score one more than we let in so England GD = -1). However to progress we need Costa Rica's GD over the Italy and England to be worse than ours, so what we need to win buy would depend on what Italy do tonight.
But its pretty far fetched anyway.
Edit: @foofighterjim posted the same while I was figuring it out
