Now I’m hunting out my flag of St George ready for 2014

Reaching boiling point!

ZELLA COMPTON: Too many cheery reminders of just how special I am ...

Have your say

Phew, what a relief – England have qualified for the World Cup in Brazil next year.

Cue happiness for men and relief for the non-football loving women who would have had grumpy, moody men in their lives if we didn’t qualify.

So, time to hunt out my large flag of St George to fly off the front of the house next summer.

Once again, we await the highs and lows that come with supporting the national team.

I wonder what the odds are for coming up against former England manager Fabio Capello and Russia, or those pesky Germans again?

At least we can now dream and look forward to summer 2014.
