The football (soccer) world cup kicks off on friday, and as there wasn't a thread about it I decided to start one. Who do you think will win, and who are you rooting for?
I'm rooting for Denmark, who have a good team, but don't really have any realistic chances to win the world cup. I think Spain will win as they are really strong in every department, and finally got over their curse of not winning anything in 2008 when they won the European championship. Other strong teams are of course Brazil, Argentina (Maradona is a huge problem for them though IMO, as is their defence), the Netherlands (defence is a question mark here too), England (they always lose on penalties, will they go all the way this time?). Serbia also has a very good team in this tournament and could go far, and Italy, France and Germany are always forces to be reckoned with, though I don't really see them as favorites this time.
Or maybe USA wins it all.
Since I work with a lot of football fans in our London office, I hope the USA wins this Saturday. It will make for a great four years worth of visits to that office.
