It has the potential to be the worst World Cup match ever.
Im my book that "honour" currently goes to Germany against Austria in the 1982 World cup where with all the other games in the group complete a 1-0 win for Germany would see both teams going through to the next round and surprisingly enough the game ended in 1-0 to Germany with both teams more or less passing to each other for the 80 minutes remaining after Germanys early goal.
It was after this game that FIFA changed the rules so that the last two games in each group would be played at the same time.
Im not the only person with this memory judging by the title of a Wikipedia page that someone has created about this particular game. Disgrace of Gijón - Wikipedia
If England vBelgium is a draw,they will draw lots to decide who is top of the group,I think it should be decided on penalties myself.Having said that get ready for the English lions as they tear apart plucky Belgium.
Hang on Im getting confused now. The outcomes above were what I read in the press this morning.
Now looking at it for myself those appear to be the teams that Eng/Bel would be in line to meet in the quarter finals.
Looking at the tables now I see that in the next round the winners play Japan whereas the losers play Columbia. I think its definitely worth winning tonight.
to be honest I think that's the best result England could have hoped for.
It gave the fringe players a chance to play in a world cup, it qualified them in 2nd place so they have the far easier side of the group, and if they can overcome Columbia, Switzerland/Sweden then they are in the Semi-Finals.
