England 2018 World Cup poll

So will England underachieve again or be more successful than expected.

I’m going to be positive and say they’ll reach the QFs.

Just anything but losing on penalties yet again.

QFs for me but a dismal effort with Kane once again looking a shadow of his real self and Sterling running down more blind alleys than something that runs down blind alleys a lot.

If we qualify from our group we will play either the winners or runners up of Group H to get into the quarters

Group H

Poland
Senegal
Colombia
Japan

Reckon we will get through the group, win our R16 against one of the above and then from the QF's onwards it's anyone, so I am saying QF

Last 16. Can see us getting Poland who will beat us reasonably comfortably.

IF things go according to seeding/reputation/some kind of footballing logic then I think we'd end up with either Brazil or Germany in the Quarters.

I think that's probably as far as we can expect to get considering their squads. Having said that, I'd still fancy us cause a bit of an upset and beat any side on their day IF we're on a good run of form (which is possibly unlikely!).

I think it would be Brazil in the 1/4s and Germany in the Final if, like you said, seedings dictate the results.

I think I worked out it would be Germany if we finished 2nd, Brazil if we won the group and everything else went as expected.

Yep, Hendo's got it back to front, unless he thinks England will win the group

I think he meant that if we win the group we'd play Brazil in the 1/4s and then Germany in the final. I was just putting Brazil and Germany out there as out two 'likely' quarter final opponents depending on where we finished in the group (apart from 3rd or 4th!).

Another +1 for the quarters. Not a lot to fear from Group H I don't think.

Definitely going to win it.

As for the group, the only way i can't see us winning the group is it the Belgium game is a dead rubber and he changes the whole side, as both may do, and then it could go either way. We aren't worse than Belgium. Biggest hype jobs in the tournament for me (Belgium that is)

Easy wins first two, probably lose to Belgium, flawed but comfortable win in R16, hammered by the first decent team they play.

Come on, this is England

Start poorly with a draw against Tunisia expecting an easy game. Scrape an unconvincing win against Panama and then lose to Belgium. Get through in second. Unconvincing win against the second round opponents and then get utterly outclassed by Germany.

QF - we should get past anything in Group H even if we finish second in our group.

We'll get a first tier nation in the quarters though and as we are pretty much second tier now that will be that.
