Football World Cup

Postby Ingo_Zachos on Sat Jun 10, 2006 8:04 pm

Now after, the first matches here in Germany have been played, who do you think will win the World Cup ?

I would put my money on either the Czech Republic or the Netherlands, as these team r a mixture of talented players that no other country possesses at the time.
And I would not underestimate the team from Switzerland.
They were lucky with a lot of referee decisions at the Qualifing stage, and that was always a good indicator of the prospects of the teams.

I can't vote against Germany. Host countries always seem to shine and they have a pretty good team as it is.

The most talented team IS Brasil - Holland and Czech will reach quarters at most. Czech will probably get bumped in the first round.

Germany is the team to your money on. I can't stress how much home soil plays a factor in the World Cup.

I almost guarantee a Brasil vs. Germany finals rematch.

Yes, today was a day of great surprises, and we saw to Top-Favoites struggeling.
looks like Spain, Argentina and Germany r the only teams with two conving games, as Netherlands, England and Ecuador were kucky, but not strong.

Looks like the cards have been shuffled anew
