If the rankings stay the same, no. England will go through.
However, the final rankings will depend on how many points each individual player amasses during the qualifying competition. In MAS and ENG's case, the 2nd singles and 1st doubles ranking are very close to each other, could easily go the other way if MAS players win their matches and ENG lose theirs.

Still, I give MAS only about 60% chance of getting any position in the top four.

In a difficult situation when I also like the opponent country, I ought to be diplomatic and keep neutral and not cheer openly for the opponents for all to see. It will be a great embarrassment if one did so.
If one does not support one's own country and be proud of its achievements, who will readily take one's place? Then one might as well be a citizen of another country that one feels proud of.
It is different when one's own country is not involved.

I remember in 2000, Agus Haryanto, Njoto, and Wang Chen all played for HK in the Thomas/Uber Cup. Wang Chen was in HK for less than a year. Haryanto and Njoto may not have been in HK for 2 years as well (at least Njoto was not allowed to play in 2004 Olympics 4 years afterwards)

Olympics is very strict. You have to be a citizen AND (if you have converted citizenship) you must also have lived in that country for a number of years.
BWF is not that strict but there are still some requirements.

If ZM is indeed not allowed to play, I hope to see Mong Kwun Yi playing HK's 3rd singles and get more international exposure. I thought she did OK when she played against Tracey Hallam during last year's HK Open.
From your other post, I will say it's very interesting that Wang Chen and Yip Pui Yin will play 2nd doubles. Chan Chi Choi must have enough faith for Koon Wai Chee/Chau Hoi Wah to be able to get some points from the 1st doubles. Koon Wai Chee/Wang Chen have won many key victories in doubles during team events, and this the reason why HK did well in Uber Cup, Sudirman Cup, and the Asian Games back in the early 2000's.
