    England - for plenty of reasons, not least the spin off benefits for every Club in the country that are gained by the national side winning a major trophy. This is the World Cup, the most important, significant and celebrated competition in our sport.

    To put it in some perspective, I've seen England win 1 title in my 62 years and be persistently disappointing for most of them. I've seen Notts win a couple of titles, gain several promotions, wins at Wembley & in Italy etc - and we will doubtless win a few more during my lifetimeNx have plenty of opportunities. England will probably never get close to winning a W Cup again based on the last 88 years. So, absolutely no brainier IMO, national team (and country) has to come first, every time.

    Agreeing with Elite again mmmmmm

    This question has been asked on here during nearly all of the recent tournaments, the majority of responses are usually Notts and not England.

    However the further we progress I think a few more may go with England.

    This ^^ except I have never seen England win a major tournament or even reach a final, to do so this year would be amazing. Also when Notts are doing well I have a handful of people I can truly share it with, when England win at the World Cup you can celebrate it with just about every man and his dog.

    Tough question.
    Would England winning the world cup affect the Brexit end game? Have any bearing on the result of a second referendum if there was one. i.e. a lot of the nation going to the vote still on a high, thinking we're World footy champs, we don't need anyone!?

    If 'both' are an unacceptable answer... can I say that I'd be happy with either?

    i was also wondering: if a mystical figure could be brought to life, would people prefer the easter bunny or the tooth fairy?

    I'd definitely go with the tooth fairy.

    I've seen Notts finish as the 4th tier Championsr 3 times already. We shouldn't even be in Division 4. On that basis, the World Cup is a far bigger thing. Now if the choice was Notts top be 3rd tier champions, I would take that over the WC because it would mean the end of our sentence in the lower leagues.

    England for me. The feel good factor of our national side should not be underestimated and I really enjoy the highs of successful tournaments, which there have been too few. Watching England is the only time me and my mates have an emotional attachment to the same team so at the moment we are having a great time with lots of debates about the side, performances etc.... We are already planning for the WC in Mexico/USA/Canada should we get there.

    Although I always claim to be dissolutioned with football at the top level, I donít think Iíve ever experienced more stress and anxiety in a football match as I did last night. It made me realise how desperate I am to see a successful England team in my life time. So I have to go for England.
    The thought of winning the World Cup and the buzz that would create across the nation would be amazing.

    I think along similar lines, but I still find it hard to forgive the pitiful capitulation against Iceland, where our millionaire Premiership prima donnas were outfought by a limited team who simply wanted it more. I can't believe how little interest I had in the group games, I had to miss most of the first two for various reasons, but it didn't bother me like it once would. I only really started to get involved last night, I cheered the winning penalty as much as anyone. I'd still go for the Notts option, but victory over Sweden might just cause a rethink.

    Easter bunny without a doubt. Now as for Notts vs England debate, Notts every time. Just because I cannot stand to see those ch imps above us

    Notts every time for me. I'm enjoying this WC and really hope England can do it, but I find it hard to relate to the players. Notts, on the other hand, are a massive part of my identity and history. It just means more to me. To be honest, I'm more up for the opening game against Colchester (on iFollow) than I am for the QF on Saturday. I was far more nervous watching us play Coventry than I have ever been watching England.

    But yeah, it would be a wonderful thing for England to do it. I think the nation needs something like that to bring it together.

    Never thought I'd say this, but it has to be England.
