Les from Hull,
frankly, I don't believe the 122 players who play for English teams. The recent figures for the seven teams (except England) in the quarter finals is 12 players left from the English leagues. That would mean that the more players from the English leagues a team had the more likely it was to fail until now. Not very probable.
BTW, which league right now has still most players in the world cup (own national team exempted)? France, of course, 25 left, 21 of them playing for Senegal.
