    Always a strong team that should never be taken lightly.

    Like my German team though, always disappointing in the end.

    Don't fancy the U.S. chances as I feel this is the Group of Death and not B or D. One year my sad little Canadian team might once again venture into the fray and dare I say it, they might occasionally stray into the oppositions territory. Apologies ALder for posting the other thread. I only searched through the Off Topic threads and not the Sports section. Feel free to nuke it.

    Although the Germans didn't disappoint last time, that was one great game against Uruguay. Enjoyed that.

    Dutch team will not go far this time, unfortunately.

    I voted Belgium because I'm happy they finally managed to get in the cup again after so many years and they have a nice, fresh team. Don't really think they will win, but well, I guess they deserve some support :)

    What I mean by dissapointed is that everyone expects so much more and then they fall flat.

    Germany this year has too many injuries.

    I had to vote patriotically sorry.

    I will say though, if England do win I will live stream me eating my own left testicle on YouTube!

    Back to reality my Money is on Spain and I'd like to think Belgium have a sneaky chance of making the final.

    Cheers Chris

    count how many times Germany won the cup in the past and how many times the Netherlands and it doesn't look that way anymore for Germany.

    Spain is just kicking butt everywhere. I think they are in a very strong position to take it this time around.

    I don't think Spain will win it. I don't think they will make the final. Injuries as well as you can't win them all.

    My hopes...

    Germany over Brazil

    Ah, the worst final ;)
    For the Dutch, the tournament would not be complete without beating the Germans, which would not be the case if Germany reaches the final. But if this would be the finals, please beat the Brazilians for us as I just plainly dislike the Brazilian team.:)

    NO ONE saw that coming, great result for Netherlands. Having seen the Brazil game they have a hand on it already the ref was shocking.
