    Brazil, Brazil, Brazil! I also can't see England getting out of the group, unless they beat Italy, and we have a poor record against them!
    Looking forward to it regardless, can't wait to watch the Dutch game tomorrow night.

    I'm not sure Brazil will win it, I think there's far too much pressure on them, I'm going for Argentina.

    Unfortunately I can't see England winning a game, I think we'll lose to Italy and Uruguay and draw with Costa Rica

    (TONGUE IN CHEEK)

    Its a pity that South Africa are not fielding a team, as we normally beat Australia in most games (Cricket, Rugby etc.):mad:
    Truth is our soccer is so bad at the moment we could not beat anyone to get in.
    Guess it will have to be Holland for tops:)

    Is the World Cup something to do with football?

    I ask because the guy 5 doors down has hung a St George's Cross flag out of his bedroom window, and last time he did that, it was a football thing.

    If so, I don't want to worry you, but the flag disappeared after about a week, so I don't think England did very well.
