BR - When you say it out loud, it's fairly obvious. Roy Hodgson's England are not genuine contenders for the World Cup.
No matter how you slice it, even if England win their two remaining qualifiers and secure qualification for Brazil 2014, they have no hope. A last eight spot (if that) is optimistic. A last-16 one may be also, considering that only San Marino and Moldova have been put to the sword in qualifying.
