I reckon Brazil v England final with England just getting it
Well I voted for Brazil, but Latin American teams rarely win in Europe.
England ? Well potentially they have a wonderful team, but they are perennial underachievers. Will be surprised to see them reach semi-finals.
I voted for spain to make it.
i just saw that italy is on the same group with C. Republik........yeah!!!!!!!!! thats a match worth to see....although the godwant be there...
Italy, Czech Republic, USA, and Ghana.
How do you say "Group of Death" in German?
Some would argue that Group C with Argentina, the Netherlands, Serbia and Montenegro, and Ivory Coast is the Group of Death, but if you consider it from a rankings point of view and just add up the rankings for both groups, Group E adds up to 72 while Group C adds up to 95.
If the U.S. can get out of this group alive, this would definitely prove they deserve their No. 8 ranking. If pigs fly and they actually win the group, then that would signal the U.S. arrival as a perennial powerhouse.
i voted for holland (my country:) )
if they can get to the next round they wil have a good change to get into the final
but i even think that will get hard to get to the next round we are in group C
they get into the group of death (so they call it already)
i think if marco van basten make a real group of holland (not every game a few new players picked) they can be strong and get true the group fase. but else i think it is to bad that we go the WK.
Er, why don't you have the 2nd ranked team in the world currently, the Czech Republic on there? Too many threads are started by people who know nout about football on this forum.
If England and Brazil win their groups the can't play in the final, they would meet in the semis.
Brazil gonna take the world cup.. she has the most good players..
she surrly gonna take the cup
Brazil is 75% sure to get the cup! I mean .. they have the best team that's clear for everybody and i do not see any other team capable of beating them anyway! expect maybe germany who will play at home and who's always there for the big competition!
I think our national team-Czech republic will go to final:).Now its very good team,best of all czech nominations in czech republic history.Our group is one of 2 groups of death at world cup 06.
Nedvěd is back,its great,I hope Koller will be healthy.We will take cup,Czech rocks
Hey Im missing Czech Republic choice to vote.Its your big mistake
If u dont know,its second best team of the world in actual ratings.
We arent communistic state already many years,we are in european union ,nope
i think england.. i mean like who could possibly go out in a group with paraguy, sweeedon, trinadad and tobago (no offense to you guys who support them )
I beleive the US Will shock at least their own bracket and beat Italy in a hard fought match. We are already hated in Europe and by winning this will make us even more hated if thats possible. Soccer is not an American Sport and despite that the talent level is surprising here.
GO BIG RED-WHITE-BLUE!
Hum...I Believe on Brazil..I Think that they take that..
Or in all the cases, Italy or the Home Team, Germany, wanna win the World Cup
It is so hard to say, I think it is going to be interesting though!
The poll should be, "will germany have enough beer"
i think germany will win the wm2006
because i live in germany
but they will give their best because they play in their own country
and they have some good players like michael ballak, lukas podolski or miroslav klose
they have a very bad defence but the goal keepers are the best
oliver kahn and jens lehmann
so i think germany will win it
I hope this is the time for Spain. I really think soccer has a historic debt with spanish supporters. We reach always quarter finals but we never can go forward.
Our manager, "El sabio de Hortaleza", best known as Luis Aragones will lead our team to victory in this edition. At least we were lucky with the draw, let's see what we have later in the knockout part of the tournament :S
What about Ukrain???
What about Shevchenko!?
Brazil gonna take the tournament..
They have the better players in the world..
maybe Argentina or England may do something.. but Brazil gonna take the Cup..
i think France :d
I From Turkey
I'm Brazilian. I hope we will win the 2006 World Cup. Our players have been showing great football in the european championships, so i think we can win our 6th title next year.
England has a good midfield, but that's not enough.
Apart from Brazil, the competition is quite open, so if Brazil somehow get knocked out relatively early, then things will be very interesting. But Brazil still have to be favourites.
why isn't Belgium in there?
Oh wait, I thought it said 2060...
If one of the European teams can contain the Brazilian attack (and this will happen at least once in the world cup) then Brazil will not win. Their defence is too weak. The most exciting side though for sure.
I think Sapin and England are the two teams that stand out from Europe as far as Talent goes, but never underestimate the French and Dutch. Both are due a good World cup in my opinion.
I'd say my Last 4 will be
I really fancy Argentina. Despite being beaten by England recently, they played some good stuff, in what was a cracking game. In the end Michael Owen's finishing was the difference.
Brazil 'll win this World Cup.... but my fawourite national teams are Italy Ukraine and Poland (of course) it 'll be great when one of this teams win the World Cup. But it seems to be unreal... maybe Italy
Brazil or Argentina !!!
Well I'd have three things to say:
1. in german you would say "Die Totsgruppe" for group of death
2. FIFA Rankings means shit really .... It just gives an indication about the recent performances of the team so that if you have team number 2 that plays against number 150 you'd be able to be all your money that the first one wll win. If you just look at them they are completely unlogical.
3. The group f death is by far the group where you got "Argentina, the Netherlands, Serbia and Montenegro, and Ivory Coast" because of the qualities of all teams. Italy's group reall doesn't compare although it's a completely passionating group.
France really did get an easy group ... hope they'll manage to qualify this time we've been pretty hungry since 1998
I think Brazil vs England in Final.
hey.....where's Australia??? I reckon will be Germany vs. Australia. How bout that??
What about Portugal? They should also be in the pool.
But I voted for Brazil
England will beat Brazil in the semi and then go on to win
3. Trinadad & Tobago
4. Sweden (I hate sweden)
^^ Group Stage
Dream final would be England and Brasil but i dont think that england will come to finals. they will lose in semi or quotar finals. Brasil hase definatly the best team and best individuals but who knows. I think Ronaldhinio will beat the shit out of everyone!!!
it has been a good year for England sports in general
