England Get Decent Draw For 2014 World Cup

England seemed to have had a decent draw in the 2014 World Cup draw, which took place in host country Brazil, tonight.

England were drawn against Montenegro, Ukraine, Poland, Moldova, and San Marino in Group H of the draw.

Scotland and Wales were drawn against each other in Group A, and will play Croatia, Serbia, Belgium, and Macedonia.

Northern Ireland will face Portugal, Russia, Israel, Azerbaijan and Luxembourg in Group F.

The group winners are automatically guaranteed a place in the Finals in Brazil in three years time, and 13 places are available for European teams.

The eight second-placed teams with the best records will take part in play-offs against each other, to go through to the Finals.

Ireland were drawn against Germany, Sweden, Austria, Faroe Islands and Kazakhstan in Group C.

England will be led by a new manager after the European Championships next year in Poland and Ukraine, and it could even be an English manager, what a concept!

The leading contender for the job is probably Harry Redknapp of Tottenham, and he is likely to succeed Fabio Capello, who will relinquish the England post after the European Championship next summer.
