England have been installed as favourites for the upcoming World Cup after playing pretty well for almost a full game of football.   

England fan, Peter Thape is getting his regular three months before a tournament feeling that this might, just might, be our year.

Despite telling everyone this afternoon that England are shite, Thape found himself checking the wallchart after the Holland game, to see who England might meet in the next round if they finish second in the group.

‘I’m not saying we’re going to win it; but if we get to the quarters, well then – who knows?’ said Thape.

‘I definitely didn’t say this 3 months before the last four tournaments,’ added Thape.
