With England drawn into one of the toughest groups in World Cup play, it’s no surprise the morale around the country’s media is…well…not so good.

But it would appear even the officials around the Premier League’s home country aren’t too optimistic about England’s chances in Brazil next summer.

There’s cameras everywhere these days, and one of them caught FA chairman Greg Dyke reacting to England’s selection into a group with Italy, Uruguay, and Costa Rica.

Seated next to national team manager Roy Hodgson, Dyke made a throat-slash gesture while laughing the moment England were picked into Group D. Click the image below to watch the quick video.

    Wow! I am not English, but it’s a shame to see an FA representative to be careless like that. Mind you, England might not be Brazil and their Premier League, the most watched football league in the world, might be affecting their own national footballers production at the national team, but you still must show a good face or else you are passing that negativity down to the country, mediia which it ends up affecting the footballers who must face the music on the pitch.
