Serbia & Montenegro
usa and ghana are wank. and italy actually
i'm going to tip usa for a quarters place
and italy too
and ghana have got a seriously amazing midfield trio
But no-one to stick the goals away.
I stand by my claim that Italy will win the World Cup.
i hope. i hate italy
are really bad. any team with players in our 2nd division dont stand a chance
are always dark horses!
on Saturday being very annoyed about that!
I refckon they'll top their group!
Holland have lost a few players to injury as well.
i think ivory coast will go through. i really do.
although serbia are a pile of wank.
7mil for Vidic, man u are fools.
mark my words.
i did think pauletta would top-score last time tho
Argies and Holland!
the second one is very tight though. I can see whoever gets out of the Argentina/Holland group going all the way to the final, potentially.
as my office sweepstake teams... what chance do I have of winning? GO!
i laughed at the girl that got greece in our euro sweepstake. i laughed IN HER FACE when i pulled out france.
you can guess the rest
I was pleased with that.
I know their history and write essays on them and EVERYTHING!
However they are ranked 5th in the world. They also fucked up Portugal in 2002...
but the only reason them and Mexico are ranked so high is because they play such awful opposition in World Cup qualifiers and the Copa America, surely?
brazil! argentina! uruguay! colombia! PAH! EASY!!!
the North American Cup, obviously, not Copa America. But the World Cup Qualifier argument still stands.
moldova? faroe islands? liechtenstein? azerbaijan?
hell the europeans have got it tough!!!
In CONCACAF there are two big nations, who qualify for every W/C.
That is not the same for UEFA.
A bit of research shows that to get to the World Cup England played Azerbaijan, Poland, Wales, Austria and Northern Island. The USA played Grenada, El Salvador, Jamaica, Panama, Trinidad, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Mexico.
Mexico aside, all those teams are probably worse than Poland, Austria, Wales and Northern Island.
Anyone who thinks 'yanks can't play FOOTBALL', and plays expecting to win, will receive a nasty surprise.
Germany were so close to losing as well...
are probably better than england though!
are better than Half Englands group...
they are such a fun side to watch.
they were ace in their test game against holland, deserved to win. 2-1 did not say it all at alllll.
Second of those groups is a pig. Italy have got the match-fixing allegations, Czech Republic can be brilliant, and I think Ghana will have a really good World Cup. I don't think America will get through, but nothing else would surprise me in that group
