    For those who don't know, this is the world's most popular sporting competition(right next to the Olympics), which means you should know it!! Its the FIFA World Cup (British = Football, American's = Soccer).

    Ok, the host nation has been chosen, the qualifications are over, the draws have been made...all that's left now is the action. Basically this is the thread where we discuss EVERYTHING relating to the competition(including the international friendlies from now till then). Here's a link to th groups list.

    Thanks Spiro for this interesting thread. First of all I wish the one who win the WC is a team that never have won WC. I will be straight forward, I wish if Spain or Holland could win WC. They are in my favorites team's list. Beside Argentina which is in the top of favorites list because of Maradona, with all due respect to Pele, Maradona is the best Century player ever & because of Messidona. And Beside France which is the second in my favorites list & that because of Zidane, who is best player after Maradona. But Argentina had won WC 2 times and France had won once before so I wish non of them will win WC. However, If neither Spain nor Holland couldn't have won WC, then I wish for Argentina or France to be the winner.

    Regarding Spain:[
    They are the best National team right now. After they have won Euro 08, they have never failed amazing me. With every a single Match they are better than before. They have a good team work, amazing player like Xavi, Fábregas, Villla, Torres, Alonso, Iniesta who I think he the best in Spain and a spectacular goalkeeper Casillas. As we know from the history of WC, Spain always do very well in Qualification but after that in the Finals that they always disappoint every one. latest example,in 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup they have defeated from from USA 2 - nil, WTF?? with All due respect to USA team but Seriously WTF? . But I hope that will not happen again.

    Regrading Holland:
    What I can say about this team? They are UNLACKIEST TEAM I've ever seen. They should have won WC 2 time before in WC 74 & WC 78 or maybe 3 times if we remember how did they knocked out in Semi- FinalWC 98. They always do wonderful game with a spectacular tactics & they have good player like van der Vaart, van Persie, Roben, Schnider. But again in finals, they disappoint everyone like what had happened in Euro 08 when they'd knocked out by Russia 3-1 in Quarter-Final Again WTF? I know Russia history in football game they had brilliants players when they under the name of USSR but Right now They are nothing in front of Holland. May be that due to the arrogant attitude of their Manger Marco van Basten who have refused to call up an expert player like Seedorf or that also due to Russian manager Guus Hiddink's strategy ( who BTW is Dutch & the smartest manger I have ever seen & I wished if he is the current manger of Holland)

    Finally, I wouldn't be SURPRISED if an African team like Ghana , Cameroon or Côte d'Ivoire win WC

    though holland or some outsiders(like mexico,serbia etc.) would be fine too

    with all due respect to your thinking ,but pele is the best

    to come to ur two fav. teams france and argentina
    i wouldnt count on them
    france plays terrible football and not just this year
    they need a new coach,cuz domenech has no effect on them

    about argentina,
    well they have a great team of individualists
    but as team they dont play good,like u have seen in the WC-Q
    they try to force it everytime through the middle,there is no variation in the game play and also though i like maradona very much
    he is no trainer-kind-of-type

    edit: nothing against spain but they have already wont the EC so i want someone else to win the WC

    I agree with you in regarding Argentina & France. Both they have good players but they need a new talent coach.

    Regarding Pele, Ive reviewed his all Video clips, nothing special about him beside he had played at a time when there are no professional players in contrary to Maradona. & I see Ronaldinho during 05-06 better than Pele. But right now he just a ghost ,TAKE A LOOK IN MY AVATAR, YOU"LL UNDERSTAND WHAT DID I MEAN
    FIFA just had chosen Pele over Maradona for the best century player just because Maradona had a bad history.

    Regarding Brazil, they had won WC 5 times, & that far enough for them.
    BTW, Brazil should have never won that WC 02, they have good luck in that WC. In Front of Belgium, the Referee had canceled a goal for Belgium.

    I don't think Brazil will get far in this WC. They have the most difficult opponents in their group.
    And thus the Spain play good football, I just can't forget the EC-final. :(

    For me it is Germany all the way, because they continously play well in the WC. (2nd in 2002, 3rd in 2006 and 2nd in the EC 2008)

    EDIT:

    Nothing will stand in Brazil way & that because they have damm luck. Since WC in USA 94, All their wins were just by luck.

    Well they have Portugal and Cote d'Ivoire in their group, that's why I think, that it would be difficult for them.
