A lot of (English) people seem to forget that after crashing out of the 1962 World Cup in Chile, England hosted and won it in 1966, therefore took part as winners in 1970, but then didn't actually qualify for a World Cup again until 1982! - To be honest, for a so called footballing giant, that's shit!!
