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.

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?
