Of course expectations of England winning will be lower than in previous World Cup campaigns with the difficulty of going beyond the group stages this year.
(PRWEB UK) 26 February 2014
DSG today announced that it will be providing unrivalled coverage of this summer’s World Cup on its site Football.co.uk and on the wider DSG network. The announcement comes as the countdown to the World Cup in Brazil approaches the 100 day mark and as Roy Hodgson tours the England teams first base in Manaus where they play their first game against Italy. Expectations are lower than usual for this England team given their extremely difficult group which includes South American giants Uruguay with the likes of Luis Suarez as well as Italy who both generally do well in international tournaments. England however could still spring some surprises and the World Cup will offer the opportunity for new England stars to establish themselves as well as perhaps the last opportunity for Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard to impress on the international stage.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Of course expectations of England winning will be lower than in previous World Cup campaigns with the difficulty of going beyond the group stages this year. That said a draw against Italy in the first match could be a good result and with a bit of luck and someone having an inspired tournament anything is possible. Group stages of modern era World Cup’s tend to be cagey defensive games but England will need to start with a higher intensity early in the tournament. We will be there to maintain your need for World Cup news,fixtures, results, live scores, video, interviews, features, analysis and a whole lot more.”
Jason Hope, Content Manager of DSG believes that Football.co.uk will be the perfect venue for World Cup 2014 News “Football.co.uk has been the favourite venue for the World Cup for the past decade, providing a second-to-none section with the best features and most in-depth stats and analysis. This year will be no different and if anything our ambitions are to do more than ever this year. Brazil will be a great host and we can expect the venues and crowds to generate an amazing atmosphere for this carnival of world football. Join us as we follow the World Cup like no-one else.”
