With the draw being made I thought it would be okay to start a thread for this?  Image attached below of the draw.

To say its a little lacklustre is an understatement.

Nice draw for Denmark. Group F looking like the group of death

IF England get through, second round is someone from Group H which is a positive....

Germany or Brazil in the QFs though!

On the plus side, can’t meet Iceland until at least the semis!

What’s wrong with naming a group of death? Admittedly it’s quite mild, but most groups are quite tough except A. Uruguay must be made up with theirs..

If England can't get out of that group, they truly are hopeless.

In fact, all the groups look pretty straight forward for the big countries. Maybe group F is the trickiest.

Quite a setup. One team with a manager who doesn’t think about defending, another team that just can’t defend in tournaments.

As an English Evertonian seems fairly safe bet that we’ll be knocked out by Martinez and Lukaku.

To think the World Cup literally used to be the thing I was most excited about in life.

The state of it now.

So it's Königsberg, Nizhny Novgorod and Stalingrad for England.

The Germans already failed once on that route.

Only group H stands out for me as a proper old school world cup group to look forward to - Poland, Japan, Senegal, Columbia.

Maybe, but we won’t be sending half the squad while the other half plays in Western Europe so it might be ok

No worry on the roof as Björn Borg once said.
Its in the group of death we excel ourselves...

Its in shitty groups, like 2006, we dont do well... 😝

Really looking forward to this. Thought it was an interesting draw. Always wanted to visit Russia, and very interested to see how the tournament goes.

Portugal were my tip but they've defo got a tough draw.

Variously scattered between 11am and 8pm I think.
