Football fans around the world have picked England to be champions of the ongoing 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia during a poll on Tuesday, July 3.
In a 24-hour poll organized by Sky Sports on Facebook, 117,000 fans cast their votes to ascertain whether England will take the trophy or not.
Out of the survey, 54% of the soccer fans vouched for England to win the tournament.
They were upbeat about England winning the World Cup following the team’s seemingly insurmountable performance in the ongoing tournament.
A soccer fanatic, Daniel Laird stated emphatically that “it’s coming home, haven’t felt a wave of positivity like this since Euro 96” with another fan, Rose O’Hare believing “all the big teams are going out so Englands [England is] gunna go far it seems”.
“If there was ever a year to do it, it’s this one, majority of the so called big teams out, take it a game at a time but I’m hopeful”, a soccer enthusiast advised the English team.
England proceeded to the quarter finals stage after beating Colombia yesterday in a penalty shoot-out. They will play Sweden on Saturday, July 7, 2018 in the quarter finals stage.
The last and only time England won the World Cup was on home soil in 1966.
