    hey all, just wanted to see what people thought about this. i'm ecstatic, but i'm not sure if they really deserve it. apparently they have changed the rules in point scoring so that now it only covers the last 2 world cups (japan/korea, and france) and not the 94 cup in the US (which england did not qualify for, hence their lack of seeding in japan...) which is the reason that england placed so high, over germany and argentina.

    anyway, i was just curious to see what people had to say, especially after the set the groups for the first stage on friday (at least i think it's no friday...:-| )

    reason was that gazza is coming out of retirement to play for England. He was looking for work after he got sacked as coach.

    the FIFA formula for seeding has got to be one of the worst methods in sports.
