London, Sep. 13 (ANI): One out of two British nationals believe that England can win the 2010 Soccer World Cup, a Sunday Times poll has revealed.
According to the YouGov poll, 49 percent of people believe England’s chances of winning are “excellent” or “good.”
The survey also revealed 20 percent nationals think the team’s chances are “poor,” while 12 percent say they are “hopeless.”
The new found confidence reflects the team’s 5-1 victory over Croatia this week, which sealed qualification for next year’s tournament in South Africa.
Times Online quoted England’s Italian manager Fabio Capello as saying that his minimum target is to reach the World Cup final on July 11 in Johannesburg.
And his dream final would be between England and Italy.
England’s success is being attributed to the discipline Capello has imposed on players, which includes limiting the attendance of WAGs. (ANI)
