England has some of the most passionate soccer fans in the world, but the national team has never fulfilled the dreams of those fans. Every World Cup is a new chance, and I think this is the year England can bring home the trophy. Sure, they're not in the top five of FIFA rankings, but when it comes to matches that matter, they give it their all. As long as they stay away from penalty shootouts, I think they will go far this summer.

England was drawn into the same group as Uruguay, which is lead by Liverpool's star Striker Luis Suarez. Unlike players like Neymar and Messi, who they only play during Champions League, Suarez is not a stranger to England. The players are familiar with his skill and style and will be ready to face him head on.

During its last World Cup run, Robert Green missed an easy shot from USA, and this is a moment that will not be forgotten. This is mistake that cannot be repeated, and I'm certain Joe Hart is the man to make sure it doesn't happen.
