Football: No problem for sven.

SVEN GORAN ERIKSSON has plenty of critics, but none of them would question his record in World Cup qualifiers.

England eclipsed Turkey and Germany in previous qualifying campaigns and the Three Lions have got it even easier this time.

Of the competition, Wales are poor defensively while Poland are too inconsistent. And Austria are nowhere near as good as the late 1970's side which featured current boss Hans Krankl.
