A Writer Imagines What Would Happen if England Actually Won the World Cup

 

BuzzFeed staff writer Tom Phillips imagines what would happen if England actually won the world cup. You can see the original post here and read more articles by Phillips here.

Who are you rooting for in this year’s World Cup? The international tournament features 32 national teams and is scheduled to take place in Brazil from 12 June to 13 July 2014. It will be the second time that Brazil has hosted the competition, the previous being in 1950.

Spain is the defending champion, having defeated the Netherlands 1–0 in the 2010 World Cup final to win its first World title. The previous four World Cups staged in South America were all won by South American teams. [source]
