Can England end 44 years without any silverware and finally triumph as world champions in South Africa?

Yes because... No because...

Should have been out at the group stages

They are now out. And in a pretty dismal performance as well. The defence practically seemed not to exist during their game with germany while the attack and midfield were pretty average at best. What is worse is that England may actually have played better than they did in their group stage games. They were just so bad in those games that they should have been out much earlier. If England had not had such an easy group then they would have been.

If England had really been going on to do well at this WC they would have won the group and had a pretty easy route to the semis, as it is they came second to the USA and that meant going the hard way. Were they ever really likely to beat Germany, followed by Argentina in the quarters and then a semi against who knows yet, probably Spain or Portugal?
