Anyone else besides me excited out of their pants about it?! I can't wait! Was rooting for Russia since I'm russian, but we didn't make it :( I think Spain might win it all, they looked real good in the euro. Any thoughts?

For me it's
  • England
  • Spain
  • Messi
  • then the African teams: Ghana at the top.

He's alright, but I dislike the team in general for the following reasons:
 
1. They knocked my favorite team the last World Cup.
2. They're sore losers and crybabies.

England have an easy first group so they'll do well. 
They'll lose heart towardthe end and disappoint though. It's what thye do.

So you guys hink the Greek will be a Dark Horse? They got good D and are hard to score on, but besides that, I dunno. Plus they are playing in an African climate, so Ghana, South Africa and Ivory Coast got home field advantage.

First game tomorrow. South Africa vs Mexico. Prediction? Scores? 
 
I say a draw. 1-1.

@The WeatherMan: 2-1 mexico they are a strong footballing team with very skilled players, it will be clsoe thou since south africa played well in the confedirations cup last year and impressed me alot.

@lazystudent:
See, I know Mexico is a stronger team, but the African climate and home team advantage I think will even it out.
#42 Posted by EdwardWindsor (14425 posts) - - Show Bio

south africa havea gerat work ethic and run every inch of grass but they do lack big game experience where a mexico have to play argentina and brazil in every qualifing tournement so i expect then to be able to grind out a hard fought win.

#43 Posted by Chane (539 posts) - - Show Bio

If England can win their group and Germany win their group then England have a relatively clear run towards the semi final imo. Which scares the absolute beejebuz out of me.

They robbed a goal from Mexico. It wasn't an off-sides. 
 
I agree, though. South Africa held in good.
