I'll back my country on this one and pick the US (in the case of this thread I'm not French  Smile )



Yes, you people may laugh but we have a great team and will at least make it past the first round.

Where are the Nigerian A-Net members?  Smile

I'll pick Togo to be the Turkey/South Korea of the 06 World Cup and make it out of the first round. They seem to have stolen some Nigerian magic (and a great Nigerian as head coach)

Everyone said the same thing about Greece and look what happened  Wink From what I saw, while they were playing in the Confederations Cup, they have a strong side. Plus they usually play very well against big football nations.

I was talking bout Mexico. whilst they do really weel in qualifyers(not very had to we'll admit)they've only been once to quarter finals and that was in Mexico !

I'll back up Argentina though they need a new Maradona to win .Thta's what they needed last time with Sweden's defensive game .

I looove spain but now i'm realistic ..

and Germany, had an almost B team in Japan/korea and went to the finals....my bet is they have all chances to win it!

We all know how south Korea was given gifts by the referees. a country that never before won a game in a world cup that goes to semi finals.... yeah right its because they are really good!

Well anyone that gets thrashed 1-0 by Northern Ireland won't win.

France won't win.

Holland won't win.

Italy won't win.

Spain/Argentina I'd like to see win but they always seem to get bad luck.

Germany, probably get far by bribing the officials :P

My bet is on Brazil or Scotland  Smile

As I said some time ago, the beauty of watching Scotland start to win games again in recent months, was that you knew when push came to shove they'd make a mess of it, thus devastating the hordes of Scots who'd unaccountably got their hopes up. They didn't let me down. Big grin
