Bit slow on posting this I guess, but who do you think will win the World Cup?

Holland.

Our opening game on Monday (12.30pm kick-off !) is against them and with the current state of my national team I fear the worst. If we don't lose too massively I reckon a draw against Cameroun and a win over Japan might just see us through to the knock-out stages. But Holland in my eyes is the side to look out for this year.

I have Denmark getting through the opening group stages (beating Cameroon and Japan), but then losing to Italy. I've taken Spain to beat Brazil in the final.

Its Brazil for me. Can't see a European team winning it this year.

It's only our fourth time at a World Cup and the previous three times we've reached the knock-out stages so here's hoping, eh. I'd like us to beat Cameroun as well but I know very little about the team and if they've already beaten Japan in their first game they will be up for repeating it against us am sure. I don't expect us to get anything against Holland but Japan is the weakest side in our group so pretty much everything could hang on our last group game against them. May come down to who beats them with most goals, Cameroun or us. If you're right, though, and we reach the knock-out stages again and end up playing Italy am OK with that. We seem to have a good grip on the Italians and I'm more confident in beating them than us beating Holland.

The only way my country can play you guys is if we both reach the Final itself. As much as I'd love that I can't see it happening but it's a very charming thought.

Funny you should pick the gilder crew, dark horses indeed. Spain have had the run of form coming into this world cup winning 45 out of 48 previous matches (I Think) but it must be their turn to loose a match or two.


England to beat Spain in the final.

The first game was always going to be the toughest as far as i was concerned. England and USA should qualify from the group from here.
