I fancy Italy. I honestly think they have a really good team this time around.

Don't want to get my hopes up. But I'm hoping for a good run

Just think that a S. American team will win this thing this time around.

I am sort of expecting an implosion of sorts from Spain though. I think there time just has to come to an end sooner rather than later

Germany and France were great. They're the only World Cups I've seen that I thought were great. Japan/Korea was decent.

Well it can't get much closer now as we're only a few days away (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)

Yep, don't want to sound biased but I think they're organised better in European countries because they actually know what the sport is all about

Can't wait for this. A football-based distraction from the hell of Milan and Rangers right now.

My picks for the last 4 are Brazil, Germany, Uruguay and Belgium.

I'll also be watching out for Croatia, Portugal, Ghana and USA.

Argentina will flop, Spain will go out at last 8 and England won't get out their group.

Bring it on.

I actually really liked 2002, even with the time zone and the bizarre Spain - Korea game. Germany was great though agree.

Anything, anything, ANYTHING will be an improvement on South Africa though, that was a horrible tournament in many ways.

Interested choices Danny

But my guess is that the US won't get out of their group

I understand the home support will get brazil through group stage and round of 16. beyone that i just seeing them flopping. i really don't get why everyone else thinks they're so great but i guess we shall see.

Italy would be my pick for this one.

So, how's Brazil gonna play? I assume:

Cesar
Alves - Luiz - Silva - Marcelo
Ramires - Paulinho
Hulk - Oscar - Neymar
Fred


Meh, it's not that great. Defense looks good, but no-one in that midfield is a world beater, not even Neymar. And they don't have a world-class striker. Fred and Jo FFS?!

I guess their performances in the Confederations Cup really helped along in hyping up their chances. Still I think the home advantage will be huge for them, as well as the other S. American sides

I read somewhere that Paulinho is out due to injury with Ramires taking over his spot. Don't know if this is correct though...

Agreed about the striker situation which is abysmal for them, the same country that fielded the best striker of this generation a decade ago now relies on this.
