    Argentina have Messi, and they're solid in all departments now...
    But Spain could also win, they haven't lost a single game for ages, they won the European Cup (2008) pretty easily. They have an awesome team.

    First 4 should be Argentina, Spain, Brazil, and hmm the 4th one? [england/portugal/italy/france/germany]...

    I changed my mind:
    Argentina
    Brazil
    Netherlands
    France
    Germany
    Either one of these these teams better win or else.
    I hate Italy now since their people are *

    Exactly, I too think Spain will win this.
    They just have multiple world class players on every position, that's what makes them so strong.
    Just look at their goalies. They have like 4 keepers that are in a world class teams!

    Brazil and England are some of my other favorite teams and maybe they will win it, but their team aren't as good as Spain.
    So Spain ftw!

    And France? Knocked out in group stage I think, so weak since Zidane left, unbelievable. Although they have quite an easy group, I wouldn't be surprised if they were knocked out very early on.

    And for some general Soccer chatter, check out this thread.

    The best strikers are easily Rooney and Drogba, but the rest of their teams suck [​IMG]

    Going for England though. *biased*

    I'm going for England, but then I'm biased [​IMG]. Really don't want Spain to win though.

    I'm hoping for the Netherlands, England or Spain.

    I bet it will become Spain tough. They're good

    I have to say................Italy.......but that's just the heart speaking, not my logic .
    Because...well the world cup is the only thing that makes me feel my nationality every 4 years...........other then that I couldn't care any less ( I've been living in the Sates for ages now ) !

    I think England have a chance this year, I was looking at the matches they will have to play up to the semi finals and and taking into account the two best teams winning each group and England topping there group then they have a great layout. I think that England will win their group ( Sorry USA but to be honest you suck at Football, not soccer but football, soccer is a stupid name [​IMG] )

    So come one England

    England vs Spain is my bet

    Portugal...as much as it is my country, I don't think we have nearly as half as the quality we had 4 years ago when we reached 4th place. We'll barely manage to cling on to 2nd in the group stage (Brazil will get 1st), and then go down in the quarter finals after a win in the round of 16 against a weaker team. At least that what I think. Figo and Pauleta were one of the world's best players, with then gone, and Ronaldo absolutely sucking (Ronaldo = Maradona - they both are amazing, one for R.Madrid, other was the best player in the world, but now they both suck at national teams playing/coaching), we won't go far.

    Italy is my choice, once again (ok, probably biased since I'm half Italian). The team is strong, focused...ultimately, a powerhouse. We have tons of difficulties, sure, with the story of defending the title, and winners curse probably is going to knock us out like it did in Euro '08, but I believe that we can at least reach the semis. Would be awesome to reach the finals and win again, though.

    Possible candidates to win (apart from those mentioned above):

    Spain - awesome team, really got stronger.
    Germany - cold-blooded, focused consistency of a "sniper" team
    Brazil - ain't 5 time champ for nothing, plus great players and natural dominance
    Argentina - if Maradona doesn't go crazy with bad tactics
    France - good team, not the best, but still very focused
    South Africa - the host will go far, trust me. It happens like that every time (though not WIN, but like..quarters)
    Holland - like Germany, although their football is a show to watch. Nothing can stop them when they put their hearts into it
    England - if they get their heads together and realize that it's not a walk in the park
