With the World cup kicking off tonight, we look ahead at England’s chances of getting through Group D alongside Italy, Costa Rica and arguably their biggest challenge; Uruguay. Below, is a fantastic info-graphic from leading car hire firm Hertz showing the venue for each of the fixture and the nearest car rental spot, which is great for those who will be travelling to Brazil this year to support England.

The fixture in Manaus ahead of the Italy game will really be a test for the lads. Situated in the Amazon rainforest the Manaus climate will add to the challenge of facing the likes of Andrea Pirlo and Mario Ballotelli. However the training in Miami for the last month must help the England squad adapt to this.

England then play Uruguay in Sao Paulo (20:00 BST) which sees the return of Luis Suarez to the Uruguayan national team. The Liverpool forward has struggled after an operation on his knee and has been working tirelessly to get fit for this match against England.

Finally a must win match against Costa Rica in Belo Horizonte to conclude the group stage. Arguably the easiest game for England in Group D, will Costa Rica have a final sting in their tails?

The Infographic also details which stadiums are  hosting the quarter finals, semi-finals and the final in Rio de Janeiro for any football fanatic! Let’s believe at least for now that England can go all the way!
