England qualified for the World Cup by winning UEFA Qualifying Group 6. England went 9-1-0 to record 27 points and best five other teams. It scored 34 goals and allowed just six during the qualifying. The lone loss in the 10 games came at the hands of Ukraine, 1-0.

Betting Analysis:

England is part of Group C in the World Cup along with USA, Algeria, and Slovenia. England opens play with the United States in a game that should determine the group winner. Either way, England should make the round of 16. Heading into the World Cup, England is 6-2-1 in friendly play, losing to Spain and Brazil. Another big loss during friendly play was the loss of captain Rio Ferdinand to a knee injury. Soccer star David Beckham is also unable to play in the World Cup because of a leg injury. With the injuries and the poor results against teams like Spain and Brazil, we don’t see England walking out with the World Cup this year.
