The World Cup Thread


Recommended Posts

Fabio Capello has declared that he knows the team he wants to take to South Africa...



...it's Spain!



Incidentally, when John Terry was injured during England's match against Japan, the commentator said that he wasn't 'someone who went down easily.' Could Vanessa Perroncel confirm that?

Great link Integer, thanks.


Looking at the groups and the draws for the second round onwards, there could be some pretty tasty games as early as Round 2. Potential for Argentina v France, England v Germany, maybe Holland v Italy.


The the group of death, group G (Brazil, North Korea, Ivory Coast and Portugal), the two thorugh from that will play the two from H, with Spain in that group. So it highyl likely that we'll have Spain v Portugal / Brazil in the second round.


I've worked out my winners / runners up and I end up with and England v Holland and Argentina v Spain semis. Spain winning the final against Holland, with England winning the 3/4 play off.


Off to the bookies......lol
