World Cup Draw: England face a rumble in the Jungle after tough draw.
England have been paired against Uruguay, Costa Rica and Italy in Group E for next years World Cup in Brazil with the first game to be held in the Amazonian city of Manaus, over 1,000 miles from their training base. Earlier this week Hodgson described Manaus as "the place to avoid" because of the climate - temperatures reach 30C and humidity is about 80%. This could be described as the dreaded group of death within this years tournament with 2 time winners Uruguay and 4 time winners Italy with star-studded squads within the group. So what do you make of England's group? A good challenge or will we be heading home early?
The other groups are as follows-
Group A: Brazil, Croatia, Mexico, Cameroon.
Group B: Spain, Netherlands, Chile, Australia.
Group C: Colombia, Greece, Ivory Coast, Japan.
Group D: Uruguay, Costa Rica, England, Italy.
Group E : Switzerland, Ecuador, France, Honduras.
Group F: Argentina, Bosnia-Hercegovina, Iran, Nigeria.
Group G: Germany, Portugal, Ghana, USA.
Group H: Belgium, Algeria, Russia, South Korea.
