I think the Spain-Ukraine game is going to be interesting since Spain always has a ton of talent but never delivers. (See Jason Whitebird) He was wearing a Spain Soccer jersey when he visited NY last month.
I can't see Poland playing to a draw with Germany. We will see!

Yeah alright! Looks like Poland is finally getting some respect in here! (I'm Polish BTW both my Parents are from there)
So anyways on to my predictions:
Spain 2 - Ukraine 1
Tunisia 1 - Saudi Arabia 1
Germany 2 - Poland 2 (As much as I want Poland to win, I think they will settle for a tie)
Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

Quoting Sabena332 (Reply 13): No wonder that the company which invented it went bust, they deserved it!
They didn't invent it. They were merely mass manufacturing it. Goleo was actually created by the Jim Henson Shop in LA, and Nici got the licence to mass manufacture it.
Quoting Sabena332 (Reply 13): What the heck has a lion to do with Germany? Nothing! Lions don't live here, lions have not the slightest to do with Germany, so why did they choose a friggin' lion?
I beliebe the Lion is part of some of the region's coats of arms (if not the Lion, then at least it's a feline in general), though I agree, an Eagle would have been much proper, since it's our National coat of arms.
That being said, does anyone have a picture of the German World Cup mascots from 1974?
