England has been bitten by the World Cup bug since the draw last week. Fans are furious, the England manager is planning and strategizing and the FA are have started issuing statements denying stuff.

FIFA’s  allocation of 55 per cent of the event’s 3.7m tickets to favoured corporate groups could see many of the expected 50,000 England fans miss out on the World Cup. While VIP’s and sponsors will get 2 million tickets, England were given only 15,716 tickets, leaving the England fans absolutely furious.

The England manager who doesn’t need to worry about his ticket and has been busy planning England’s warm-up games. England will face USA, Algeria and then Slovenia in Group C, a group being dubbed by many as the ‘Group of Joy’ however, the England manager, Fabio Capello has been quick to warn his players against complacency. Fabio’s strategy is  to play against teams with similar characteristics as the teams in England’s group  to better prepare his team for the tournament. Since, USA are the main threat to England’s ambition of  topping their group, Capello is trying to get one friendly match against either Mexico or Honduras.

While the FA are denying the use of Viagra to help England players rise to the occasion in South Africa!

The Football Association denied that Fabio Capello’s side are considering the use of Viagra to help players cope with playing at very high altitudes at the World Cup.

A report claimed, that the anti-impotency drug could improve the team’s lung capacity. The team’s base camp in Rustenburg in South Africa  is 5000 feet above sea level .

However a FA spokesperson said today, “The England medical staff are conducting detailed research with a variety of experts ahead of next year’s World Cup. However, there has been no discussion with regard to Viagra and certainly no plans for the players to take it in South Africa at the tournament.”

The World Cup is in the air, how could the fascinating, absurd, ridiculous, insane, speculations and inspiring headlines be far behind?
