Before the world cup started, I was rooting for Paraguay. I was actually very confident with them until their best striker, Jose Cardozo, got injured. My fears were proven correct because they played terrible against England.

I also root for the spanish speaking countries, since I'm hispanic and I feel closer to them than with European teams.

England didn;t play that great, but a win is a win and an important three points in the bag. And Wayne's almost ready to come back!!

I bet that's Argentina's turn!! My country is confident about the team's capacity!! I think Brazil as always is the antecipated winner of WC, they have the best players of the world but I think that argentinian team is more united, they have that group work not only individual abilities. The English team may surprise for the player's quality. I don't believe Germany will be the winner even being the host country with all their supporters, I couldn't feel confidence in that team.

those three goals were in the last 8mins... :shock:

It's a pity the score was 2-0 in Brazils favor though.

Australia only needs a draw against Croatia to get through to round2.

Australia is a big favourite to do really well i think, if not, get lucky and actually win.

They had so many missed opportunitys against brazil...

I am NOT knowledgable in this sport, but from what I've seen, feel and think, its England vs. Brazil in the final!
