With the start of the football World Cup only a week away now, this is a thread to discuss everything about (*puts on American accent*) the greatest football competition on the planet (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
Here are my predictions as to what will happen (feel free to make your own) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
Teams to qualify from the group stages
Group A: France Mexico
Group B: Argentina Greece
Group D: Australia Germany
Group F: Italy
Group G: Brazil IvoryCoast
How will England do?
England should top their group. The USA match will probably be tough but we should beat Slovenia and Algeria. If we do, then we will most certainly avoid Germany, Italy and Spain until the final as they will be in the other half of the draw. Potentially the cup run will involve a match against the Group D runners-up, which will probably be Australia, Ghana or Serbia. Then we could face France, Argentina, Greece or Mexico in the quarter-finals and then probably either the Netherlands or Brazil in the semis. I think England have got a really good chance of reaching the semi-finals this time around, but certainly their quarter-final match won't be easy.
Hard to say really. I think the USA and Japan have both got a good chance of causing an upset somewhere. The USA will be no pushovers, having beaten Spain and nearly beating Brazil in the Confederations Cup last year.
Who do you think will win the World Cup?
Hopefully England (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif). But realistically I think the final will probably be Brazil/Netherlands v Italy/Spain (whoever wins their respective quarter-finals). I'm going to go for Spain to do a Euro-World Cup double.
