England should be afraid

By Steven Beacom

I got chatting to a guy in Heathrow yesterday and he was debating about going to the World Cup finals in Brazil next year.

He was an England fan mildly satisfied with the 0-0 draw in Ukraine this week which kept Roy Hodgson and his uninspiring team top of their group.

He said the only doubt he had about going to Rio was England being outclassed when they got there and whether he fancied watching that.

He was so passionate about the whole thing and I was deflated having watched Northern Ireland, I didn't have the heart to tell him that England HAVE NOT qualified yet!

England need to beat both Montenegro and Poland at Wembley to be sure of making it to Brazil.

I wouldn't go booking those flights too soon.
