ENGLAND On Rampage!! F1 Is Near To End!!

This Summer, the England made a disappointed season when they failed to qualify for the European Championship or Euro. They missed the sparklight, the glimmers and the news publicity they desperately needed. Euro Champion eventually was won by the Spainiard armada which proved poisonous and retained their performance throughout the game.

Anyway, Euro 2008 had drawn its curtain. The attention and stakes are now on the World Cup 2010 which will be held in South Africa, the first African nation to host such an event. England was again in the same qualifying group for the second time with their own archnemesis during the Euro qualifier - Croatia. Group Six in which England is in also comprised of Ukraine, Croatia, Belarus, kazakhstan and Andorra. Earlier, England won 2-0 against Andorra with both goals scored by Joe Cole. England then had their sweet revenge over their nemesis Croatia 4-1, including a hatrick by Theo Walcott and a strike by Rooney. Last Saturday, England triumphed over Kazakhstan 5-1, surviving a hairy first half and the heroes were Jermaine Defoe, Rio Ferdinand, two goals by Rooney and an own-goal. Therefore, England stayed atop with 9points followed by Ukraine 7, and Croatia with 4.

Turning to F1, Fernando Alonso made it double in what looked to be the bullish improvement from Renault in the final part of the season. He won in the inaugural Singaporean GP and yesterday won the Japanese GP too. On Sunday, the podium for the last weekend race was filled by Alonso, Kubica and Raikkonen. With third place of 6 points, Raikkonen is out of the championship driver title, meaning that he will not defending his  Driver title he won last year. The race for the top driver is now down to the showdown between Lewis Hamilton, Felipe Massa and Robert Kubica. For the constructor champion, Ferrari lead McLaren with 142-135 and BMW Sauber is 128.

That's some short update on England and F1...
