I'm rooting for Togo, because they are probably the longest shot, and because I once got lost in the mountains there without realizing that I had accidentally left Ghana.

If not, then I don't care.

When does Germany play Italy? Because it will be the Czechs and USians advancing.

I think it was CNN that did a report recently of the influx of racism and skinheads with swastika flags and the like in the stands of soccer games in Germany.
Scary ****.

Germany is not in the group with USA and Italy. The rest of that group is Ghana and Czech Republic. Tomorrow's match will decide a lot, my pick is Italy to win that group and one of the US and Czech Republic to advance in second spot.

And of course, Germany is going to win the World Cup. I would love to see them defeat and knock the US out again, but the draw doesn't see it likely. Possible Germany:England matchup in the Quarterfinal round, though...

no italy... totti just came off of injury and they play too defensively to make it into the later stages. I love them but they are just to good at dissapointing.
no england... I hate them
no germany... balak is just getting off of an injury and they looked pretty weak against costa rica.
no usa... at least not yet, but I will cheer them into what I think will be a semi final defeat
maybe portugal... they have figo and his prodigy (the other) ronaldo... but I missed their game today so I'm still not sure if they're in good form.
My vote for the win is ARGENTINA, they have a young hopeful squad and have looked strongest in the first round of the group stage. or trinidad 'cause that would just be awesome

Brazil will probably win... again... But you can't go for brazil unless you're from brazil because well that's just too easy.

Australia made it in after 34 years!
Go Australia!
Since no one gave a **** about soccer before qualification, its crazy to see how many are now supporting Australia and watching the world cup.

Our first match is tonight it sucks arse that Ive got a end of semester uni exam tomorrow.

australia just kicked ass. if you missed the last ten minutes, too bad for you. ronaldinho is the new derek jeter, even though he used to play for
<--------------psg a few years ago. finally, we're ranked number 5 in the world, we can finally cheer for our own country in the cup, damnit.

That was a great last 10 minutes against Japan...

Can't wait for the US/Czech match in an hour.
