Brazil to win it or at least reach the final.

Germany, Spain, Uruguay are the other contenders.

Biggest Disappointment: Argentina

Biggest Surprise: Colombia and/or Belgium

Regarding my country, i don't think anyone is expecting much and neither do i, Ronaldo is injured, will play but never at 100% and other players are also not fit. I will be happy if we pass the group stage.


World cups that are not played in Europe always have plenty of surprises, so we'll see what happens, hope Brazil doesn't go out early or there will be riots on the streets  violent

I can't really make a prediction, I am just excited to have something good to watch leading up to American Football. Normaly only having that sport where you hit a ball with a stick this time of year kills me.

Can't wait for the World cup to get started. What a Face Love it that the season has really only just finished but we get another month of football over the summer.

I think England might really struggle to get out of their group...  pale 

I can see Belgium doing really, really well...

Should be some great games.  cyclops

Yeah England has it tough... so does the US and Mexico. One thing is for sure it will be great games after the first round. I love the "win or go home" games.

Yep, Mexico v Croatia match will definitely be key in their group. As for the USA's chances of getting out of group G....  Well that group must be this years official 'group of death'. You never know though...

It will be a grudge match for sure against Ghana, after Ghana have beaten the US in the last two consecutive world cups apparently:

What a half!! The pressure definitely got to Brazil, but looks like they re-grouped.

They definitely showed they can bring it

Wow!  Shocked  just finished watching the Spain v Netherlands game. What a match! Who would have seen that final score!

Could easily see a Brazil v Spain quarter finals down to that result. Huge win by the Dutch.  cheers

Reaching the quarter finals:

France vs Germany
Brazil vs Colombia
Argentina vs Belgium
Netherlands vs Costa Rica


What do you guys think so far?


It has been fun to watch, specially the group stage.


Regarding my earlier predictions, Portugal going out in the group stage was sadly almost expected, things didn't worked out for us this year at all.

Spain was by far the biggest disappointment, Argentina is still holding on.

My darkhorses are holding strong, and hoping for an upset, let's see how Brazil will react after the penalty shootout.

Semi finals starting today, no surprises in the quarters, so we have:

Germany - Brazil and Netherlands - Argentina

Anything can happen at this point
