    Germany for sure. They would kick ass all the way, but Brazil is also a good team.

    Pfffff, Australia.... No way...
    I think it'd be either Brazil, Germany, France, England, Holland or Czecho.

    Czech and France are my european favourites. I believe France is better in the moment. Wonder why you overestimate Germany- If they reach the quarter finals they can be lucky...hard to think about
    I suspect that Brazil will fail this time, probably the best team around now but it is hard to defend a title and ubelievable hard to defend it twice...

    good lord the aussies are joint first in the poll :shock: and the Czechs don't stand a chance, it'll be one of the major players, France, Brazil or Germany, although Italy have a small chance, England wont make it any further than the quarters.........

    I think Germany will win it. They are a much better team than they were in the 2002 World Cup and they made it to the finals against Brazil and put on a good game against them. Besides Klinssman is doing a great job with the team and they are filled with youth that want the victory. I think they will surprise the world, just like they did a few weeks ago when they beat the USA 4-1 in Germany.

    Brazil is falling apart. Yes they are a good team but they rely too much on individiual strenght and not team unity. They are getting old and they are hurt easily. In the end I think they will suprise the world by being eliminated early.

    My guess for a World Cup final will be Germany 3 - Czech 2

    Well nobody knows.... I remember that in 2004 EU Championship Czechs won all games and in the quarter finals those shjitty playing Greeks beat them...

    Or remember Korea and Senegal at WCS 2002.

    I know crap all about football, though I find the world cup mildly interesting as I can relate to countries more than commercial teams. Australia are lucky to be there and have no chance of winning, that I am sure of, I still remember when they lost to Iran despite having a huge lead of like 3 goals.
    They are in the same group with Brazil and Croatia who will be the two progressing out of that lot I think.

    I would probably rate Brazil to win, you can never discount them, Germany also as they have home ground advantage and tend to usually do ok.

    UK won't win but will probably do ok, Italy I'll rate about the same, two countries who never seem to do quite as well as they should.

    No idea about the other teams, I'll leave the real predictions to more knowledgable people.

    So if we see a streaker we know who has been slacking then...

    (Although watching the game is much more interesting)
