Although I'd like to see England win my early prediction is going on Spain; Messi, unsure.gif Torres and Reina in goal - at the very least I think they'll reach the final.

The US team is good enough to have a place in the championship, but common Americans doesn't know much about this sport. And they surely don't know what football is. tongue.gif

Norway didn't qualify this time, but the upside is we won't risk embarrassment there. I'm neutral for this championship, I just hope neither Italia nor Germany wins.

Yeah I noticed that too, but I just assumed he made a random glitch. Everyone knows Messi is Argentinian....

Anyway, I think either Argentina or Spain will win.

Portugal used to be very good, but are they that good now?
I don't have any favorites, all I ask is that we get a worthy champion. If that is Portugal - fine with me.

I support this. As long as England get put out in the most painful way possible, hopefully at the quarter final stage. A group stage exit would be good too, but even England 2010 are unlikely to drop out of this group.

The rankings aren't perfect. To my mind, Spain are easily the world's best team, but they lost to the USA in an unimportant match a while ago and had an imperfect qualification record, so eh.

I'm not a supporter of England but I almost feel sorry for them if they perform bad this time. Last time they did won the world championship was before I was born and that is a long time ago. The English team has not accopmlished much the last 40 years or so. Isn't it time now? I'm not going to celebrate an English success but I'm certainly not going to complain over it.

My biggest wishes for the championship is an early German exit and an early Italian exit. And Argentina... I always liked Argentina but thanks to their coach I don't want them to get far this time. Maradona is a ****.

Not just sports -- news, adverts, anything topical, chat shows...on Mars bars, bottles of milkshake, tic-tacs, crisps; on the radio.

and Reina? wtf? I know he is from Spain but hes going just to watch the games and MAYBE play the 3rd match if Spain is already qualified for the next round.

BTW, i wouldnt consider Argentina as a possible winner... they are playing bad, Messi doesnt even touch the ball if hes not playing with Barca and they almost didnt qualify for the World Cup...

I say: Spain, Brazil, Germany or Netherlands.

Scottish channels are shit and can't possibly compete with the BBC or newscorp, or even the partially independent channels like channel 4. It'd be like me starting up a drugs company to compete with GSK. Plus, the BBC is really good otherwise (the rest aren't really).
The Awesome One
Heres my Predictions:

Winners: Spain

Runners Up: Holland

Most surprising: USA (Englands still gonna beat you on Sunday though!)

Shocking display: Brazil

Top goal scorer: David Villa (Spain)

And England will reach the quarter finals and get knocked out on Penalties by Holland.

Might as well get in the mood:

I just hope France will lose tonight because they qualified to the world cup by cheating. I hope they'll not advance from the group play. Ireland should have had their place.

Excited for seeing Brazil and Spain kick off their campaigns over the next few days. I'm still rooting for the Netherlands (after England) though.

Greens howler was pretty unfortunate but it doesn't surprise me that England failed to deliver as usual. I'm guessing we'll pick up 6 points in the next two games but past the group stages I have no clue how we'll do. Hopefully we improve as we get into bigger games but Germany are looking like a pretty formidable team that we could potentially face (even though Australia were shocking).

England quarter finals
Spain or Brazil vs Netherlands in the final I think.

It would be a refreshment if Spain and Netherlands met in the final.
