True. Australia are miles behind most countries in the football stakes, I'm not digging you aussie folks but you have to admit it's not your countries first sport. Where as in England it's religious to most people. But I would love to see you get one over Brazil, definitely be supporting The Socceroos.

I think our group (Englands) is a fair enough group, we always seem to get Sweden must be a Sven thing, if only our manager was from Ivory Coast lol. And Trinidad and Tobago eh, they have a few English based players, they'll be well up for it.

Should be good, I might do a bet on Ivory Coast to get through their group. It's a tough one indeed. The odds wil be fairly nice :shifty:

It will definetly be a stepping stone in Australias footballing history, but it will be a long shot to defeat Brasil, they are the best footballing nation ever :p if they get one over Japan, it will be a nice milestone, but it will take more than strength and speed to overcome Croatia and Brasil, its just not Australias passionate sport..................yet..

Very happy with the draw for England. Looks like we'll be having a go at Sweden again though. Trinidad & Tobago have a couple of good players which might do well. And Paraguay are a good upcoming side.

Australia's stuffed. Croatia and Brazil. Hell, even Japan could probably beat us :(. We should've taken Germany's spot, we'd have half a chance then :).

I was about to say that, i think that is the hardest group, Croatia and Japan are very tough teams, and well, we all know about Brasil.

I'll be impressed if you Aussies make it through group stage, i hope you do, but i can't see it happeneing.

Good luck.

*edit* ^Paul - that's what made me stop watching it.

England should win this time. Even Pele has said that the only team looking to challenge Brazil is England. Go England Go!!!

Stop being overly opiniated towards Brazil. Practically every single post you make says that Brazil are better than England, England and Europe suck etc.

No one has said that Brazil are not a good team, we respect Brazil, but people like yourself really tick me and other people off with what you say.

STOP IT AND JUST ENJOY THE FOOTBALL!! :angry:

Oh hush. If you know football at all ... which you probably don't since Brazil's national league is so poor ... you'll know that any team can beat any other team on it's day. England have some of the best players in the world in Beckham, Owen, Rooney and Lampard.

Personally I think that England will play Brazil in the semis and the winner of that game will go on to win the World Cup.

So, yet again, Brazil got an easy group.

The US also got a fairly challenge less group of opponents.

As for Costa Rica (Who Im rooting for the most), first game of the cup is with them vs. Germany.

GO COSTA RICA!!

....Oh and US too

That does it, stop being an ######!

I must remind you that Brazil and Portugal were part of the World Cup 66's group C:

Group C:

Portugal

Hungary

Brazil

Bulgaria

Do you know why the team list is like that? Because we won all the games in our group and you were kicked out of the competition!

The tournament got underway with England and Uruguay playing a goalless draw at Wembley.

England qualified from their group as winners without conceding a goal.

The new top team in world football was Portugal.

They won all their three first round games and even knocked out twice winner's of the cup Brazil. Pel? just as in 1962 got kicked out of the competition.>

Another surprise was North Korea's contribution to this World Cup. Their victory over Italy is one of the all-time greatest shocks in world football. The defeat sent Italy home as well.

England beat Argentina in a match England coach Alf Ramsey described the South Americans as "Animals".

He refused to let his players swap shirts with them after the match!North Korea led 3-0 over Portugal at one stage and looked like reaching the semis, but then Eus?bio knocked in four goals and Portugal eventually won 5-3.

b>

The semifinals saw the Germans beat the Soviet Union 2-1.

A young Franz Beckenbauer scored West Germany's second goal.Bobby Charlton stopped Portugal and Eus?bio's run in the World Cup when he scored twice to send England to the final. Eusebio scored his ninth goal in the bronze match when Portugal beat the Soviet Union, and that was some consolation./b>

The final produced lots of drama as England faced West Germany at Wembley. England eventually won in extra-time and became the third host nation to win the World Cup.

TOPSCOREEus?bio (POR) 9 goals

Helmut Haller (GER) 5 goals

Geoff Hurst (ENG) 4 goals

Franz Beckenbauer (GER) 4 goals

Valeri Porkujan (SOV) 4 goals

Ferenc Ben? (HUN) 4 goals

We are proud of our team and we'll always be proud of them! And I don't need you to bash other people's teams and countinents! Kthx.
