The biggest event is almost here. Matches start tomorrow and I've got a pocket TV not to miss anything while in the bus.  ;D  

Who do you think will win the World Cup?  Will Brazil reach its 6th triumph?  Will Maradona walk naked in Buenos Aires to celebrate the victory of the Argentinians? Will Spain or Netherlands finally succeed? Will God's hand work again for France? Or is fate on the side of the Italians and their Dolce&Gabbana suits?

This is not about who will you cheer for, but who you think will win.  The nine teams above are the top ones in the current FIFA ranking.

I usually dislike football but a such great event can't be missed! For a month I'm football (and a lot of beer) fan! As I'm romanian, my favourites are Italy but I'd like to win the team who shows us the best show, best football and has the best skilled players.

I live in Pretoria, South Africa and the soccer (we call it that) fever is running HIGH. On every car flags are flying, my own too, from every lamp post flags are flying and the sounds of vuvuzela's fill the air...My kids are having HUGE soccer parties at their schools today.This is a great event and even though I've never been a soccer fan I'm pretty sure that's gonna change within the next couple of weeks.
T minus 5 hours and I'm gonna plaster myself in front of the TV....
As to who will win I know too little to make a prediction. My only hope is that Bafana Bafana (what we call our national team) will do reasonably well ;D

Yes - the England vote was mine, we can all dream..

I would have been supporting Ireland, had a certain handball incident not happened in Paris.

Anyone know the name of an English football team with a Scottish football name who play in Irish colours with a Welsh emblem?

Apologies to everyone else around the world who won't have a clue what I'm talking about.

I hope we (the Netherlands) will finally win it for the first time in life. Very exciting. Wish I could be there in South Africa now. For the games but also the country

I'm with you.

Made the mistake the other day in Dublin to ask a cabdriver if Ireland was attending.
The poor man almost broke out in tears :)

The Dutch would have a good chance, if they ever perfomed as a team! You should have won it in Cruyff's day. The Portuguese are an outside bet, but I'd rather they didn't because of Ronaldo's presence.

Agrentina have class, but a very poor manger, while Brazil have the strength and depth to go all the way.

Given England will at some point lose on penalty's, in my ideal world we'll have another repeat of the European championships where Denmark and Greece won in the past. I'd like a rank outsider, preferably from Africa itself.

One major obstacle will be the Germans (again).

The Irish would never have won it, but would have drunk more beer per fan.

An interesting start today.  More coming tomorrow!

I don't follow football much, but I LOVE world cups. I'm taking part of four betting contests! ;D

 Hi All,

 Got to watch the match from a party at the Guinness brewery last night to close out Cepic here in Dublin. We are very lucky to have tied that game. Being the fat headed person I am I placed 50 Euro on the Americans to win. I'll take the tie even though it didn't pay. We really played terrible football last night, we never controlled the mid field we had no use from the outside on the attack and pretty much played with only two men up. That won't hold up long in the cup, I do hope we start moving the ball better. I have 3 12 year old keepers on my team  that would have stopped that goal, I'm glad the Brits don't have my keepers to support them: ) Green will never see the pitch again. Enjoy the matches, looking forward to Australians and Germans tonight.


Cheers,
Jonathan

Hi madelaide,

 You are here in Dublin I wish I had known. Yes they have t shirts that say Anyone but France here in Dublin after a terrible call made in a game last week. My wife is out buying the kids the England Kit. We'll see how well their friends feel when they wear them to school. We leave Dublin tomorrow. I am putting my money on Spain this cup.

Best,
Jonathan

I've seen amazing players shut down in WC before but I think this Messi will NOT be denied.

ARGENTINA!

It was Opla who was in Dublin recently.

Sorry for any ozzies here, but I had bet Germany 4x0.  I've scored many points in that match, as well as in Slovenia 1x0 Algeria.  

Tomorrow we have interesting matches, unfortunately everything is during working time.  :(  I will be able to see the second half of Italy x Paraguay at the bus.

PS: I'm curious about which teams got votes in "others", as the nine teams in the poll are the top ones in the current FIFA ranking.

So it seems we already have some surprises. France, not likely the champion. It seems the leprechauns made a revenge!  :D Spain was a deception, but has still room for recovering.

Look like France are heading home - England need a win tonight to avoid the Germans in the next round. Argentina are playing attractive football, and the Spanish flatter to deceive.

I hope the US quailify....

All I see in the Uk papers is a picture of a South African soccer ball at the top of most pages in the colors of the flag.

Someone must be earning good money.

Happy birthday Fabio Capello!

So Germany fell today, after a beautiful start.

This is getting interesting. And now, even with a lousy team and a lousy coach, expectations have risen in Brazil.  Not that we may not succumb to Ivory Coast on Sunday...
