We do have a decent team this year. I think soccer/football is starting to more popular here, which is good. Heh aren't we in the same group as the Czechs?

Sigh...

Come one now... we don't need 32 threads for every official squad list in the World Cup.

I set official in italic because they are not actually official.

The guessing came to an end on Monday with the deadline for coaches to confirm their squad lists for the 2006 FIFA World Cup™.

Some national coaches had already named their definitive 23-man lists prior to the deadline, while others, like England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson, confirmed the provisional squads they had announced previously. The official lists will be confirmed by FIFA on Thursday at 12.00CET.

And even the teams listed on Thursday can change (and some probably will).

What we really need is a Neowin's Official FIFA World Cup 2006 thread.

So Howard joined Everton on loan, I wasn't sure if the deal had gone through.

I would have taken Utd's young defender Jonathon Spector. He's been on a season-long loan at Charlton and has played quite a lot of Premiership games for them. If you wanted players playing at the highest level, then you should have taken him.

Take Adu too, the world wants to see what he's got.

Gavin: So what its called a different name in other countries. The fact that the word Soccer of Football isnt prevalent in the title "Neowin's Official FIFA World Cup 2006" makes your post even more pointless. No point in igniting an old flame for such a dumb issue. Get over it.

I stated ?World Series? as refering to Baseball, Basketball and American Foolball. Those American Sports. That was a jo;). ;)

So I think I did have a point. Do you want me to cry you a river, build a bridge and then get over :D. :D

i see... might hvae taken it a bit out of context, but world series only applies to baseball.

And believe it or not, World Cup is pretty big in the USA. Soccer is the most played organized sport in the US and even Canada. The US has a lot of south americans and Europeans so the World Cup isn't another wacky euro sport on TV. In Canada soccer is even bigger... this is my home town of Montreal, Quebec after Greece won the Euro Cup in '04. Almost every bar in Montreal will be televising WC matches.

Don't feel so bitter, Canada never makes the WC but we watch it with a passion

anyways, this is Montreal after greece won

Why not have add a 'soccer' photogallery.

Those who have been lucky to see a football match can post pics or after show pics like bayrider.

Theo Walcott, and i think he's 17 now. But yeah, good point.

I saw a clip on the internet of Walcott, he looked awesome. But it was Division1 football, not the Premiership
