Infographic: England’s group stage guide, and beyond?

The 20th FIFA World Cup takes place in Brazil, the home of football, and unlike other World Cups, this particular one doesn’t have the usual “we can win it!” aura about it from England supporters with quite possibly the lowest expectations ever. Could this work in their favour?

Maybe. But England first have to navigate an extremely difficult group stage with Euro 2012 runners-up, Italy, and defending Copa America champions, Uruguay. CONCACAF side, Costa Rica, are the other side in Group D. Below is a guide provided by Hertz for any of those fans travelling to the South American nation for England’s fixtures. Two quality group games are guaranteed and an supposed simple victory over Costa Rica. Despite the lack of expectations, there is the possibility that England might just get past the group stage. They may be travelling to Recife or Rio for that potential Round of 16 game. Rio’s Maracana is the stadium for the final as well, and that remains the unlikely dream, but this infographic should help you out, if the near impossible does take place.
