    With who England had in their group they should have made it through.

    Heard a stat that American teams(N/S/C) had a MUCH higher win % then every other country, and the rest of the world had WAY more losses. I don't remember the exact #'s but it was like 13-6-3 for Amercias and like 9-13-6 for the rest of the world, or something absurd like that.

    As of yesterday the exact# are American Teams, 10-2-3 vs the Rest of the World,: 9-6-16 (w-d-l)....yeah, 16 losses kinda jumps out, however, remember there at only 10 American teams vs 22 rest of the world (RofW) teams...furthermore, the RofW teams have played head to head 11 times so far...that's 11 losses/draws that must occur...in contrast, American teams have only played head to head twice....

    I know but it's still rather striking. From what i'm hearing is that European teams have usually struggled in southern American tournaments, and most hypothosize it's b/c of the heat and humidity that they just aren't used to. Which makes what Germany is doing that much more impressive.

    I think Germany stands a good chance of changing that though, but England is going to be lucky to even make it to the 2nd round.
