So, we couldn’t resist seeing how well England would do.

Just like in Career Mode, you’re able to sim or play the games. We chose the former, as our FIFA ability is questionable to say the least.

Can Gareth Southgate’s men make history? Or, as we’ve come to expect, will they buckle under the pressure of a nation?

The group 

It’s not the hardest group in the world

As in real life, England have ended up in a semi-decent group.

Tunisia and Panama are certainly winnable games, with the only sticking point coming in the form of Belgium.

If we don’t get out of the group, it’ll be seen as a huge missed opportunity.

Game 1: England v Tunisia

Nooooooooooooooooooooo

Nooooooooooooooooooooo

It’s a nightmare start from Southgate’s boys who lose their game first game of the tournament 2-1.

Captain Harry Kane gets his name on the score sheet but it’s not enough to fend off a tenacious Tunisia.

This could get ugly…

Game 2: England v Panama 

That’s more like it

Seriously, a loss here would have been one of the biggest upsets in football history.

A decent show from England, showing plenty of character – but worryingly still concede a goal.

(Yes, we know Joe Hart is in goal for us but EA Sports has since updated the squads).

Hopefully England can take this momentum in to the next game – their biggest challenge – against Belgium.

Game 3: England v Belgium

LOL

LOL

You’ve got to be kidding.

England lose 2-0 against a fired-up Belgium team and with that get jettisoned from the tournament, without even making it through the group.

Tunisia and Belgium go into the next stage while England and Panama are left licking their wounds.

*cries*

So, there you have it.

According to the FIFA 18 World Cup update, England won’t even make it out of the group stage.

Yay…
