    I am not sure if this will interest Americans (Do you like Soccer?)

    but anyway, who do you think will win?

    I would start a poll but I would probably cut out someones team and they would get mad with me :)

    Anyway, I hope England (Svengland) will win, I am not sure if we but if we go out my interest will drop in football till the Euro cup in 2004 :)

    Well this morning was a major disappointment :( Was that the best we could do?

    I'm not sure england will qualify from the group we've got, so you may find yourself losing interest in the WM pretty soon ensign. I'll still be rooting for spain though (my adopted second country :)).

    Argentina are my favourites to win it this time round. They're a class team, and will take quite some beating.

    Neither. England drew 1-1 with sweden... :mad:

    In the other match in our group, argetina beat nigeria 1-0. That was a close one!

    Well, the US doesn't play its first game till later this week. There's been a lot of press about the US team (relative to the others, but that should be expected). I'm just hoping they make it through the first set of games and clinch their group, and they only have South Korea, Poland and Portugal, not exactly heavy hitters (what's up with that?)

    Ouch for England this morning, but its better than loosing to Senegal, France is really hurting and their next game with Uruguray should be really intense, both teams need the win to stay in. And don't count England out, if they can win all the rest of their games they sould have no problem securing their group.

    I'd like to see the US make it to the next round. I think we can take Poland. But the S. Koreans are gonna be pumped w/home field advantage. And Portugal well... Hopefully there'll be some underestimation of the US squad and that'll give'em the edge they need to make some upsets.

    EDIT: Dukestreet, Portugal is ranked 5th in the world by FIFA. US is 13th BTW.

    BTW I don't care if I live in America or not IT'S CALLED FOOTBALL DAMNIT, NOT SOCCER!!! ;)

    Italy

    It wouldn't shock me at all to see Italy win it all. They've got the best goalie in the world. The Ireland-Cameroon match was pretty good on Saturday. Both of those squads looked good, and will probably advance from their region. Cameroon has been on fire lately. Still, I'd like to see the English win it. Premier League started me on soccer (MAN U FOR LIFE) and it'd be nice to see them do well just for nostalgia's sake.

    Re: Italy


    I think you're forgetting that germany are in the same group as those two, and won their first match 8-0 (ok, saudi arabia aren't exactly a major force in football, but hey, 8 goals is good!). It's a shame ireland have sent home Roy Keane... (you should know him, being a fan of the dreaded red devils and all :D)

    Re: Re: Italy


    Oh my, you're right. I did forget all about Germany. I suppose I should pull for my homeland and all. As for Keane...heh. Damn shame about him going home. Ireland made a bad decision there. Oh, and do I detect a bit of distaste with my Premier team of choice? If so it's quite alright...as long as you're not one of those damned Arsenal fans. ;)

    England are still on a high about 1966...... :rolleyes: :p

    It pains me to say it, but personally.... I don't think England have a chance........ :(

    I reckon it'll be either Italy, France or Argentina.........

    But hey... what do I know about football....... I support Coventry City....... :D

    Whoo hoo, I'm sorry I missed the game, I forgot about it and found out at work. If we can beat South Korea next we can probably make it into the next round, but they might have home field advantage, and a crazy crowd to cheer them on.

    Knowing I would miss "both" US matches (live and taped) I set my VCR to tape it in the AM. Well... my dumbass tape ABC, not ESPN2. Perfect end to a perfect day.

    I can't be to upset though, since the US f**king won baby! I know the US isn't a world football power yet, but it's only a matter of time.
