Brazil will win. It will be boring to watch.

But here's hoping Czech Republic make an impact, they have an excellent young team led by a true superstar, Nedved.

I like the Czechs. :) Nedved is strong and determined, but technically (and overall) my favourite Czech player is Poborsky, although he's getting close to retirement now.

Apparently, Messi has recovered from his injury and he will probably play in the first game against Ivory Coast. Of course, in football you never know...

It would be a good idea to post the players that have been chosen by the coaches to play the world cup. You guys should post your favourite teams or whatever you want. :)

Ok, here's Argentina's list:

Keepers: Abbondanzieri, Leo Franco, Ustari.

Defenders: Coloccini, Ayala, Heinze, Cufré, Burdisso, Milito, Scaloni, Sorín.

Midfielders: Maxi Rodríguez, Lucho González, Cambiasso, Mascherano, Aimar, Riquelme.

Forwards: Messi, Crespo, Tévez, Palacio, Saviola, Cruz.

Fucking Pekerman!!! He left out Zanetti and Agüero!!! :x Agüero is VERY similar to Messi in attitude, style of play and even physical complexion, although he's one year younger than Messi. And the first keeper should be Ustari and not fucking Abbondanzieri!

Well, Borgetti and Kinkin are not that bad. :)
But you're right, they shouldn't have left Blanco outside the team....well, it's a family thing...isn't?

Last time I checked, it wasn't official. Extraofficial results show that the votes in favour of independence have reached about 55.3% (they need at least 55% to become a separate state). If Montenegro becomes an independent state, I will have a good excuse and I'll be able to justify Argentina's elimination from the world cup. :D I can see it clear now:

".... they overpowered us; there were just too many of them... too many Serbians AND Montenegrins!!!"

Today I watched something very great...
The Mexicans saying "Sí se puede!" ("yes, it's possible", or something like that)

It was beautiful!

Whoops, I should have said.
I watched the England vs Hungary game earlier, England won 3-1 but I don't think they were up to a good enough standard for the worldcup yet, they must improve as a team and only one more friendly left before the finals!

I've discussed this in a cafeteria, and concluded that maybe Spain will be the surprise. If they win, I'll post a pic of mine the next day! If not, then in August!
