What do you think about when I say South Africa? ...

Nelson Mandela, the Springboks, Table Mountain, Desmond Tutu, Safari, hot hot hot, Ernie Els, that girl runner that looks like a bloke ....

And now England winning the World Cup.

The three lions have won 8 out of 8 world cup qualifying matches this campaign. The latest one being the battering they gave the Croatians at Wembley,winning 5-1. This was payback for the 3-2 defeat they got back in November 2007.

With two matches to go, England have booked their place in South Africa next summer. Hopefully they can pull off the unthinkable by winning all ten matches (especially the last game at home to Belarus with me and fellow BR creature, the amazing, unbeatable Yoosof Farah supporting the boys from the stands).

The English side has had the old player moved around, but overall they have performed at a world class level.

Even though England are flying through, manager Fabio Capello is determined to keep his side's "feet on the floor". They don't have to win the next two games but if they succeed it will show the rest of the world that they're here to do one thing and one thing only ... to win.

The team seems to be doing well with 11 players on the pitch, but the 60,000 fans cheering them on from the sidelines act as the twelfth.

Come on ENGLAND!!! :)
