Gary Lineker took part in a practice World Cup draw, and revealed England’s hypothetical opponents
There was a group of death too, sort of.
On the first day of December, 1986 Golden Boot winner Gary Lineker will conduct the 2018 World Cup draw in Moscow – but before that, it appears there’s been a practice draw.
During what Lineker described on Twitter as a “production and logistics meeting” for next week’s draw, the former England striker revealed there had been “a quick run through” as well.
And despite being just a practice run, people were keen to find out how England got on – Gary obliged.
Just had my first production and logistics meeting for next week’s @FIFAWorldCup draw. Had a quick run through (it’s complicated) and England ended up in Group B with Belgium, Senegal and Japan.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) November 23, 2017
Belgium, England, Senegal and Japan – sounds like a fun group, no?
We'll take that.— I’m President (@KramReklaw) November 23, 2017
Lineker also revealed the group of death, although later admitted he was joking, as Argentina and France, both in pot one, cannot be drawn together.
Argentina, France, Mexico and Nigeria – now that really would be a tough group.
