So, congratulations to the England football team in preserving their 100% record and securing qualification last night with a 5-1 victory against a team that they lost against a mere two years ago.

It's interesting to note that not only have they won all their games in the group, but they're one of only three teams in the European division to have done so. Of the others, the Netherlands and Spain both have slightly stronger defences, having conceded a mere two goals each as opposed to England's 5.

On the other hand, the Dutch scored 19, the Spanish 21, and England scored 31, giving England by far the best goal difference in the entire division.
