I am glad that we are not going to face Germany in the WorldCup.
I think this means you already knew that you will not be playing against Germany in the WorldCup. Right?
However, if I want to rephrase this so that it sounds like I am not sure what will happen in the future and the fact that I just prefer not to face Germany. I wrote:
I hope that we are not going to face Germany in the WorldCup.
Is that correct? Does it mean the same thing?
