My prediction is Italy. Its long overdue. Although Germany being the host nation may have a strong run. I hope they don't have any bullcrap shananigans that happenned in South Korea this time around.

I like Argentina as well. They have much better chance in the Latin American world however. I'm with you on Brazil. I'll give them a bit of credit though, they always bring the ugliest team. smile.gif

any predictions as to who will win next wc?


I was really amazed on the Czech republic's talent, they played extremely well! But unfortunately, they don't seem to be part of the WC this year sad.gif

Anyway, i don't like germans, i am completely fed up from Brazil, France used to be a good team now they suck..

So i'll go for Italy (unless they end up in a penalty shoot, they are cursed biggrin.gif )

Italy is my first choice too, but I really want England to win. Germany also has a chance and the Czechs are amazing.

(Down with Argentina though...!)

The Germans are usually calculated, and boring to watch. I'd much prefer a more exciting team win....

I do agree. Germans have the world's most machinistic football.

I read a joke a while back about which style was more modern. The German kick and hope or the British kick and chase.

But Holland is clearly the best historical team that has not won a WC.

Have you seen that movie "Victory" with Pele and Stalone? The Germans players were portrayed exactly like those soldiers. LOL.

I love the Spaniards, the Italians, the Argentines, they are always fun to watch for me.

A few days ago, the prestigious and world renown (sic) United Arab Emirates football team invited Brazil for a friendly match in here..

I swear it was funny like hell watching those brazilian players mocking the UAE team during the first half-time.. They scored a little 1-0 and just kept playing woth the ball around the field..

Second Half time, they started to play seriously and the match ended with a simple... 8-0 biggrin.gif

Boy does the UAE team suck !

Yes, it was a festival of goals. Funniest thing was that besides Caca's goal, the rest of the 7 were scored by substitute players.

Speaking of a goal fest, Spain pummeled Slovakia 5-1.


Other games this weekend were:

Germany 0-0 France

England 3-2 Argentina (friendley)

Czech Republic 1-0 Norway

U.S.A. 1-1 Scotland (friendley)

Sweden 2-2 South Korea (friendley)

Turkey 0-2 Switzerland


I also just found out that the Euro 2008 games will be held in Switzerland.

Breaking News: Turkey fails to reach the finals..

Switzerland came back from a 3-1 Turkish lead to finish the game at 4-2 , thus getting their ticket to Germany with an agg score of 4-4.

And finally the last team to secure their place is Czech Republic, defeating Norway 1-0 on the second leg.

The 32 list is now completed.

Faith in youth
Wisman put his faith in local youngsters after foreign stars Mamadou Diawara, Apoula Edima Edel Bete and Karl Lombe did not report back for duty after going on holiday. Several players from the youth academy were handed debuts, including Hayk Chilingaryan, Georg Nranyan, Norayr Sahakyan, Rafael Safaryan and Andranik Gasparyan. Those players form the core of the country’s Under-17 and Under-19 sides.

I have never had much faith in foreign bought "Armenian" nationals.

And now some development from the European Champions Leauge:

Barcelona 3-0 Real Madrid

Juventus 4-1 AS Roma

I also just read that long time Manchester United capitain Roy Keane has left the club on "mutual agreement."

He gave us some good memories with the Red Devils.

Cheers Roy!

I was at the UAE game and they played pretty well, it was only 1-0 at half time, and they were apparently reduced to 10 men. THey certianly played better than Suadi did against Germany back at the world cup in '02, i think at least.
Heh, i was close to Ronaldinho that day.
