England will travel to the World Cup in Brazil with very little realistic expectation—at least of winning the tournament.
There will be the usual jingoistic pressure from those who don't watch an awful lot of football, but those who pay attention to the game will know there are at least half a dozen teams a long way ahead of Roy Hodgson's side.
A quarter-final appearance, especially given the tough group England face—they will play Uruguay, Italy and Costa Rica—would represent a respectable performance for Hodgson and his players.
However, this does not mean that individual players will not have a point to prove, be they veterans looking to create a legacy, former fringe players trying to cement their places in the side or youngsters trying to make an impact.
