FIFA Bombshell: England Could Land In Group Of Death



FIFA chiefs today ripped up their anticipated World Cup blueprint – and increased the chances of England getting a nightmare Finals draw.
 

After deciding to use the October world rankings to determine the
seven teams to join Brazil as top seeds, it had been expected the same
measure would be used in the draw on Friday.

 

That would have seen France, as the lowest ranked European
qualifiers, taken out of the nine non-seeded UEFA teams and placed
alongside Ecuador, Chile and the five African sides in Pot 2.
But
instead, FIFA general secretary Jerome Valcke today announced that
instead there will be a random draw of one of the nine UEFA sides,
including England, to go into the other pot.

The UEFA side, the
first team drawn out of the 31 to join Brazil in the schedule calendar,
will then be allocated into a group headed by a South American seed,
Argentina, Colombia, Uruguay or the hosts.
If England are the team drawn out, they could then face a horror group,potentially having to negotiate their way past Brazil, Italy and the USA merely to reach the knock-out phase.

It would also guarantee they could not face the two weakest seeds, Switzerland and Belgium.
Even if they remain in Pot 4, the toughest group awaiting Roy’s boys is likely to be Spain, Chile and Mexico.

On the other hand; Switzerland, Algeria and Costa Rica is still the kindest group that could await England in Costa do Sauipe.

Valcke said: ”We will draw one of the nine European teams at random and put them in Pot 2.
”That
will happen before the start of the draw to avoid the risk of mistakes
given that teams from three Confederations are in that Pot.

”Then
there will be a special Pot X containing the four South American seeds
and the European team will be placed in one of those four groups. It
means it’s a draw and all the balls are drawn.”
FIFA President Sepp Blatter added: ”The decision was taken by FIFA’s executive committee, all the Confederation Presidents.

”We are at a draw and we should have a draw. It’s easy to say it. Let us draw all the teams, and not pick one out.”
The
decision was a surprise for France, who feared Blatter’s personal
animosity towards UEFA President Michel Platini might see Didier
Deschamps’ side punished.

But the about-turn looked like a sop to
Platini, perhaps intendedto buy the Frenchman off challenging Blatter’s
plans for another term when the position of leading the world governing
bodyis up fpor election in 2015.
