I say Germany or Brazil will win. The other teams are not as good as they are. Besides, Germany's already kicking butt in her division.

Go Germany, go!

Oh, I'm surprised that Turkey's not in FIFA this year.

Yea, I am suprised Turkey isn't in this year's World Cup. In my opinion, they were one of the best teams that played football in 2002 in S. Korea. I must say, Brazil was very, very lucky to get past them in that semi-final game.

I'd like to see someone else in the final besides Brazil and Germany. In all honesty, I don't see Germany going to the final with that mediocre defense they displayed against Costa Rica.

Abou Turkey, they should never be able to participate in any world championship anymore after what they in the match against Switzerland.

Damn stupid players. One of the swiss players almost died from hemorragy.

Argentina, hmm as brazilian im not a big fan of Argentina but as a good football fan i know they have a good team....they show during the last match that as soon as they want and start moving they get the results wanted.

Imo, they are a strong candidate to the title.

Go BR !!!

:-D

Argentina's 2nd goal was offside. I have it on my DV-R, and no matter how many times i replay it, and not matter how many different angles I watch it from, the goal was offside.

The goal scorer was not off-side.

The england match for me died when the ref was just giving it to the other team.

Sure we missed own and the subs were very strange but how can you expect the likes of gerrad and terry to put in awesome tackles when a ref is giving stupid little things like throw ins. 3 bad throws in a match, jeez i've never seen anything like that in my life.

And when Paul Robinson hit the big screen he gave a drop kick to the other team and they were able to get an attack out of it.

Me i would of just made the goal keeper re take it!!!!!!

The ref was a disgrace for that much, his greasy gelled hair made him look like Dracula...

The most pathetic decision he made was when one of their players fouled Gerrard, and Paraguay got the freekick :blink:.

Wasn't my type of game, per say. Nonetheless, the best player in the field, without a doubt, was Robben.

reminded me of the England match, Holland dominated the first half (/Serbs didnt turn up) then both seemed a bit tired in 2nd half and serbia got back into the game a bit

We won!!!! awesome second half by mexico.

Iran`s style is weird. They charge strongly and the oppossite team`s players doubt not because Iran`s technique but because they fear to receive a hit.
