Can England win a World Cup? They have a small chance but have an easy road to the semis.
They are in the same group D as Argentina with Japan the only potential hurdle in the group. In the quarter-finals, they will likely face either Australia or Wales.
Their first real test will therefore likely only come in the semis.
Few teams have snatched defeat from the jaws of victory as successfully as England in the past 18 months but it would be stupid to rule them out.
They only won 7/17 games in this time with a draw against the All Blacks probably being their best result.
They are building up aggressively to the World Cup and still boast a lot of the same personnel that took them to the 2019 World Cup final.
If they become a cohesive team by then, there might be some fireworks.
That is however a big if.
