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!

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

The Brazilian team is amazingly far better then any other in the World.

Imagine yourself as an international player. You're about to face Brazil in the WC. You're lined up in the tunnel and you look at the Brazilian squad....there's Kaka, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Adriano, Zé Roberto, Roberto Carlos, Emerson (terrible player - fine, he defends well - but respect in Europe), Cafu (very old, Cicinho is a far better player today, but still very respected).......then you take a look at the bench, there's Juninho, Cicinho, Robinho, Ricardo Oliveira, Júlio Batista.......its an amazing team.

This actually worries me. Never has Brazil been so favorites, and usually when we're heavy favorites, we don't win.

All the tackling and smacking of asses....oooh I think a "Tight-end" would a great position..to..um...play. Its so...manly.  wink  "They do a lot of huffing and they make a lot of noise. Those great big cuddly gridiron boys."

There was a recent report that stated that most NFL "athletes" are grossly overweight. Most couldn't run up and down a field for 45 minutes straight take a 15 to 30 minute break and the come back for another 45 minutes of hard play if they wanted to. They would suffer from heart-attacks. Luckily the networks provide them with commercial breaks which can act as extra time-outs.

As for the World-cup....Say what you will but... Ganbatte Nippon.
We have more players getting Euro-time and coming back to teach the locals how to really play. Having a great coach doesn't hurt either. We may not win but we will put up a great fight.
