I normally think England will do well, get up to semi/quater finals before getting kicked out, for for the past few world cups we havent really done so well. But i think we can get to the finals in the very least this time.

We havent had a team this strong for ages, Rooney will be back striaght after the group stages, which we should walk through, and i cant wait to see what Theo Walcott brings to the game if/when he plays

The only strong contenders i see are, Italy and brazil, but the problem with italy is that they they are relying on one player which wont work, so who knows

Spain will win and Iran will be the biggest surprise !

If Israel had qualified would Iran have turned up?

I will naturally be gunning for England.

I think Ivory Coast could get to the 1/4 finals.

Golden boot, well you need to look at a good team playing a poor team for plenty of goals

and if one particular player score 4 in a 7-0 drubbing, then they may get a couple more on the way to the 1/4 finals.

The ones listed I doubt will feature, however, I will say Peter Crouch has a good chance of being #1.

As an American, I have no clue about Football (soccer to us Yanks) but i am going to try to support our Team (and our English Cousins-Nevada Smiths in NYC!!!) this year and have a question. I am clueless about the offsides rule in Football. The Fifa site doesn't have a rulebook or i am just not finding it, can someone point me to it? I am figuring that the rest of the world can't be wrong about a sport.

Right... :whistle:

Costa Riccans lost to a pub team 3-2 the other day.

It's Germany, Germany playing a team that got drunk under the table, so hence the score.

This aint Argentina v's Cameroon of 1990.

I doubt even the linesmen (assistant referees) and the ref know the off-side rules.

Is he passive, was he active, did he think about passing the ball or not. Some of the lame excuses they come out with.

The Worst I have seen is a linesman giving someone off-side from a throwin. :no:
