I guess we are different then. I'd rather win all our other games and lose the world cup than lose all our games and win the world cup. (I'd like to win everything but if I was to make a single choice).
I don't see this loss doing us any harm.
One thing is that if you pick purely on form, you lose team culture. A good team will manage the players who aren't at their best, give them support and space to improve and reap the benefits.
Our culture and team spirit is the difference between us and the rest.
i don't care who wins or loses, as long as the ref has nothing to do with it, and as long as no cheating was involved. which is why i can't bear FIFA world cups.
