Three groups settled till now and six teams have made it to the next round: South America (2): Argentina, Uruguay North America (2): Mexico, USA Asia (1): South Korea Europe (1): England Africa (0) More importantly, the teams eliminated are 3 European teams, 3 African teams and not other continents having any elimination till now!! May be FIFA needs to take note and give at least one more pick each to Asia and the Americas and reduce the number of entries from Europe. What do you say? Cheers! Ram

Think they should leave England at home, they're a load of garbage. And as for Rooney I wouldn't pay him in buttons!!!!

But in the first three groups decided till now, England is the one European team that has squeaked through to the next round!! Cheers! Ram

Yes, it was not very inspiring to say the least. Especially the way they were jittery at the back in the last 15 minutes!! Cheers! Ram

Yeah i agree with your analysis. May be FIFA should take a note that all the European teams are not performing. I felt that if teams like Croatia and Check republic would have qualified they would have faired well in the worldcup. I personally feel that the South American teams perform far better than Europeon teams and not to frget the Asian teams like Japan and Koreas who have shown to the world that they can compete in the Big stage.

Maybe even Republic of Ireland. FIFA's decision not to give them a play off chance now looks really stupid seeing the way France has sullied this world cup!! Cheers! Ram
