    FIFA World Cup 2010 thread

    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.

    I pity North Korea...first time qualifying since 1966 and the group they're in is going to pretty much annihilate them: Brazil (their first match), Ivory Coast and Portugal.

    I'm obviously supporting England and will obviously be getting drunk, fighting and throwing patio furniture around because of it.

    I'm also following Ghana, Nigeria and Ivory Coast. I have a soft spot for African teams (but not all of them) - I think they just play great and are very consistent.

    ! But seriously anything is possible, England could walk into that game thinking "Well, it's the USA, they'll probably pick the fucking thing up, spike it on the goal line and do an elaborate celebration"...and for that reason get completely outplayed because they underestimated their opponent.

    I don't have much hope that it will happen, just saying how awesome it would be if it did happen.

    Finally a thread where Sebastian knows what to write - something that's not bullshit
    or at least thats what he thinks

    It's hard to tell who will win the tournament...

    I really hope England will win with the USA
    England had a hard time though.. had some injuries...

    And a really interesting thing is that a lot of Chelsea players (representing different countries) have injuries, that's what you get after a tough season, was it worth it ?


    I plan to watch as many games as possible

    Friday:
    Republic of South Africa - Mexico (Sebastian says RSA will win)
    Friday Uruguay - France (Sebastian says France will win)

    Saturday: 3 games
    England - USA
    Argentina - Nigeria
    Korea Republic - Greece

    BTW, I am for Holland. The nicest football, very dynamic, very creative. Brasil is the other cool team. Germany sucks this time, but German football is always survived till the finals.

    I hope France gets a ass kick from England, and England get's it's ass delivered by Holland.
