More South Koreans believe their side can win the World Cup than English people think England can, according to the Independent.

Only 4% of people in England think Roy Hodgson's men will win the World Cup for the second time, compared that to 8% of South Koreans, despite the fact there are 45 places between them in the FIFA rankings.

Of all the respondents, Brazilians are the most optimistic, with 64% of their fans hoping that they will win the World Cup as hosts. England fans mainly share Brazilians optimism, with 26% saying that the hosts will lift the World Cup for the second time this century.

17% of English fans polled said that Spain would retain the World Cup and become the first European side to win the tournament in South America.

Unsurprisingly our least favourite team is Fabio Capello's Russia, some fans clearly not ready to forget how the Italian manager handled England's last World Cup and blame him for under performing.
