There's some fantastic and scary games in prospect, if we finish second and France win their group then we get the current champions in the second round—it only gets better. It's also been confirmed by FIFA that from now on tournament champions will have to qualify for the next World Cup Finals. It's an interesting idea which will probably make no difference in the long run, it will however help the champions get a proper warm up rather than play a succession of meaningless friendlies.
