England is one of only seven nations to have won the FIFA World Cup since the competitions inception in 1930. The FIFA World Cup Finals in Germany will be England’s twelfth appearance at the Finals since making their competition debut in Brazil 1950.

England is one of the favourites to lift the 2006 World Cup after a dream draw that has seen them pitted against Paraguay, Trinidad & Tobago and Sweden in the opening round of matches.

Sven-Goran Eriksson is the man charged with leading England to a second World Cup success. Sven is far from being the most attack minded manager in World Football and this would be the teams biggest obstacle to overcome.

Eriksson is at his third major championships as the England Manager. The one game he has given his players freedom to attack they managed a 4-2 win over Croatia (Euro2004), and this after the Croats opened the scoring in the 5th minute.

If Sven can show the confidence in his players as the England fans will no doubt show in their team with World Cup bookmaker Canbet.com then a successful World Cup campaign is in the offering.
