Well as long as neither Brazil, Germany nor Argentina win it, I don't mind. And I want to see Portugal go out early too.

Brazil, though technically exciting to watch, would be too boring as winners. They've won it 5 times already and are the holders, FFS! Rolling Eyes

And being British I naturally can't support the Argies... Laughing Same goes for Germany too, of course... Wink

As for Portugal, after the cheating ref gave them the game ahead of England in the Euro 2004, I don't want to see them go far in this years' WC. Razz

Obviously I'd like to see England go all the way, especially 40 years on (time to burst into singing "40 years of hurt..." etc Razz ) but I don't really think we can win it unless Beckham, Owen and Rooney are all fully fit and firing. Though making the semis should be possible. Smile

Apart from all that - may the best team win, whoever they are! Very Happy

lol - yeah I know, he's pretty lame these days. Too much celebrity status and "bling" and not enough delivering the goods on the pitch.

And Walcott is a good fine and a promising young'un, but too new and unproven IMO. Crouch could be firing just in time though.

As for the hosts usually winning the Cup - that's not true. According to the winners' list only 6 of the tournaments have been won by the host nation out of the 17 so far.


Only seven countries have won the World cup Championship since it began in 1930.
BRAZIL x5
ITALY x3
GERMANY x3
URUGUAY x2
ARGENTINA x2
ENGLAND x1
FRANCE x1

Year / Winner / Score / Runner-Up (Host)
----------------------------------
1930 Uruguay 4-2 Argentina (Uruguay)
1934 Italy 2-1 Czechoslovakia (Italy)
1938 Italy 4-2 Hungary (France)
----
1950 Uruguay 2-1 Brazil (Brazil)
1954 Germany 3-2 Hungary (Switzerland)
1958 Brazil 5-2 Sweden (Sweden)
1962 Brazil 3-1 Czechoslovakia (Chile)
1966 England 4-2 Germany (England)
1970 Brazil 4-1 Italy (Mexico)
1974 Germany 2-1 Netherlands (Germany)
1978 Argentina 3-1 Netherlands (Argentina)
1982 Italy 3-1 Germany (Spain)
1986 Argentina 3-2 Germany (Mexico)
1990 Germany 1-0 Argentina (Italy)
1994 Brazil 3-2 Italy (USA)
