      2. Poland

      Group B:
      1. England
      2. Paraguay

      Group C:
      1. Argentina
      2. Netherlands

      Group D:

      2. Mexico

      Group E:
      1. United States
      2. Czech Republic

      Group F:
      1. Brazil
      2. Croatia

      Group G:
      1. France
      2. South Korea

      Group H:
      1. Spain
      2. Tunisia (Should be interesting group since 3 of the teams are evenly matched)

      Im not gonna guess on the knockout rounds since half of that ^ is probably wrong. But the final will be between Brazil and Argentina with Brazil winning it.

        Brazil almost always winns. I think that they actually own the original World Cup trophy because they won it so many times.

                England will win it, yeah how many times has one said that.....well over here anyway...


                i am loking forward to the world cup... but its still football not soccer... the FA is the football association :)


                i will never count the germans out.... they suck at world wars but they always manage a good game and tend to win... saving grace is they have pretty much sucked these last 2 years now... although with talent such as Michael Balack, you can never rule them out..

                the least said about brazil the bettewr we all know their attacking capabilities, and lets face it any team against brazil is an underdog... however, the defensive capabilities of my home team, with both terry and rio in the center and nevile, cole in the wide areas... plus the amazing robison this year between the uprights.... i am excited... saying that, Wayne Roney injured Michael owen, just recovered and has not had much play time... and a coach who is on his way out after the cupp... this ones going to be a good one..

                i am hoping the germans go out early.... my heavily bias prediction.... England Brazil final..... :)

                    I'm pretty much on par with you lot, although I think:

                    Group B:
                    Sweden
                    Paraguay

                    Sorry England. You just don't have the talent. When the big news is whether a 20 year old wil play or not, you are sunk.

                    Group E:
                    I'd love USA to get through, but I'm thinking

                    Czech Republic
                    Italy

                    It all depends on how Totti does.

                        Crikey! Ireland didn't qualify? That's a new one on me.

                        Definitely vice versa. England will go out in the quarter finals. Had Ireland qualified, I predict they would have continued their noble tradition of going out in the first round.

                        I predict the english football commentators won't shut the hell up about 1966. In fact, I reckon every other word they say will be 1966. It always is.

                          All of you that dont think the US will advance are insane. We are seeded 9th going into the tournament. Italy is ranked 8th, and the czechs are ranked i think 16. That means we have a very good chance of at least getting second, and Italy is very closely matched with us so we might be able to squeek by with a first in our group.

                          Or im just hopelessly optimistic.

                            He might be 20 years old, but dam he is a excellent player. Voted for pfa young player of year and won, 2005. I personally dont like him (because he plays for Man U) but he is a the one to watch out for.

                            I think ENGLAND have a exceptional chance of winning this world cup, bar no silly mistakes or injuries.

                            We have a mixture of youth, experience, loads of pace, great crossers, fantastic strikers and some of the best defenders.

                              I'm not up on the teams or players, but I'm somewhat interested in the fact that they're using a radically redesigned ball for this World Cup. Anyone know of any good articles on the science behind this football?
