Winners of groups..? Over all winner..?
Who do you like..? Who wins the 'no points, no goals scored' award.. (otherwise known as the 'Thanks for coming out" award?

group a: germany & costa rica or ecuador
group b: england & hmmmm.. sweden.. or maybe trinidad & tobago with Beenhakker as the new trainer.. dunno
group c: argentina & netherlands
group d: portugal & mexico
group e: italy & czech republic
group f: brazil & croatia or australia
group g: france & ??
group h: spain & saudi arabia or ukraine.. or maybe tunesia!

it's kind of hard now all the "underdog" countries such as south korea, trinidad & tobago, ghana, togo, etc have a trainer from another country. they might actually do well this tournament!

I like that. Makes for a more interesting tournament and there's always some really shocking upsets...

group A germany poland
group B sweden england
group C holland argentina
group D portugal mexico
group E italy czech
group F brazil australia
group G france s.korea
group H spain ukraine

aussies + ukraine as plucky outsiders
saudi arabia + t&t as whipping boys
holland vs argentina + italy vs czech all time classics
argentina to win (or brazil, depends on their mood)
holland, spain strong, italy, france, portugal, germany disappointing.
england - heroic exit via penalties in quarter or semi finals as usual.

Steven Gerrard gave England an injury scare ahead of their World Cup opener against Paraguay by declaring himself only "50-50" to feature in Frankfurt.

Interesting... from the BBC:

"And so it was again today, with another rash of Rooney speculation ahead of the game against Trinidad and Tobago.
Every hint and whisper at England training on Tuesday was that Rooney would be involved, not as a starter but certainly as a late impact substitute."

Leo Beenhakker will get a bonus of 247 liter of rum if Trinidad & Tobago beats England tomorrow

reminds me of what gary lineker said..

football is a simple game, 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and in the end the germans win..

The whole game played down by Poland's goalie, and only one goal!

amid the fireworks last night jj went into a tirade:
'how can they celebrate beating ten men with a goal in the last minute?
they should be ashamed! isn't it enough to invade them twice?!'

see, americans can get it too.
