England look a new team under Capello and they cruised through the qualification section to book their place in South Africa with ease.
The same can be said of the USA who face very little competition over in central America but they will fancy their chances of knocking over England on the back of some good form. They showed their potential in the 2009 Confederations Cup when they went to the final which included a shock win over Spain in the Semi-Finals which England will need to be wary of.
