Here's an interesting article from some English fan.

  Numbers don't lie. Or do they?
 
  A bit of world cup fun :
 
  Brazil last won the world cup in 1994.
  Before that they won it in 1970.
  Add 1970 and 1994, it equals 3964.
 
  Argentina last won the world cup in 1986.
  Before that they won it in 1978.
  Add 1978 and 1986, it equals 3964.
 
  Germany last won in 1990.
  Before that they won in 1974.
  Add 1990 and 1974, it equals 3964.
 
  Here's the scary part:
 
  England last won the cup in 1966.
  Add it to 1998...
 
  IT EQUALS 3964!!
 
====================================================

 Lets have a look at who lifted the cup over few decades:
 
   1966 : England

   1970 : Brazil

   1974 : Germany

   1978 :Argentina

   1982 : Italy [as median]

   1986 : Argentina

   1990 : Germany

   1994 : Brazil

   1998 : ?
 
 Taking Italy at the center, every other team has lifted the cup twice;
so don't you think its England's time to do the same this year?
