I'm from the United States so i'm hoping we'll place higher than in recent cups but i'm going to have to go with the Netherlands winning the Cup.

But if someone does win it'll be us yanks

England have a better team, and traditionally football is the one sport that unites the whole country pretty much, i dont think it has the same following in the US.

If you guys win I will forever pronounce the game as 'soccer' :P but nevermind, it will be an interesing match

it's an european thang, same goes with europe not giving a shit about american football.

anyways, i think spain will be in the final, with hopefully the netherlands accompanying them. that's going to be a clash of the titans considering both spain and the netherlands play some aesthetically nice football.

Replace Netherlands with Germany and it would be a great finale. Not only the exact same finale as in the last EC, but hopefully this time with a better turn out for Germany. :D

Well yes us Europeans love it but you can't pretend that a lot of countries in South America, Africa and even Asia don't love it, because they do. Certainly your Brazil, Argentina, any country in Africa really and with Asia it's usually in countries where the biggest football clubs in Europe go and play mini tournments before the season starts.

But yeah it's the worlds favourite sport you know.

France to topple out at the group stages. North Korea to beat Brazil. Ledley King to get golden boot.

Where have you been hiding old chum? I thought you would have started this thread just like the majority of the World Cup / Euros / Champions League topics over the years.

Anyway, my predictions for today. A comfortable victory for Mexico V South Africa, quite possibly 3-1 I think. Uruguay V France should be a good game on paper, I rate young Suarez very highly, I hope the little fucker can put the French to the sword right from kick off. That is of course if Tabarez plays him ahead of Abreu. Quite possibly a 2-2 draw, but I hope for a Uruguay win.

It's finally upon us, I cannot fucking wait. Oh and that Waving Flag song by K'NNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN! was pretty ace.

I hope it isn't comfortable and I'm not so sure it will be. South Africa are unbeaten in 12 games I think (or somewhere around there). Hopefully they'll put on a good show.

Haha, it's an awesome song, and a pretty good mood setter at that.

Especially looking forward to the Group G matches.
Also this'll be a 2:0 for Mexico.

I am actually interesting in watching the World Cup this year, seems very promising.

Response to 2010 Fifa World Cup Thread 2010-06-11 10:00:29


I'm not into football at all, but I'm considering giving some of the world cup a watch. I see South Africa and Mexico is about to kick off, so I'll watch it for a bit and see if it keeps my interest.

If things get a bit dull I always have TF2 on my Mac to keep me amused now.

I was thinking the exact same thing when I heard it. It's so annoying, and I hate bees.

I do hope the crowd is gonna stop blowing their horns soon. For the past 25 minutes all I've been hearing is a constant *PWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP*. It's getting really annoying.

Anyway, I'm betting for a draw in the first match. I think both Mexico and South Africa are gonna be a little too careful and do not wanna go all out yet. 0-0 or 1-1 maybe.

Bunch of useful links:

LiveScore

Also, LOL@a liner flagging an offside during a corner kick. Mex deserves to lead at the half-time. They seem to be favouring their right side, i like how their forward right is rotating, but their left defense seems slow and brittle. If i'm SAf, i'd like to exploit that area.

Bah, SAf pushed forward maybe 3 times in all of 46 minutes. Mex spent so much time in the SAf box they might start having to pay rent. For great justice, Mex should be leading.

More interesting stuff, i wish this replaced the vuvuzelas.

Just put 10 quid on the USA to beat England. Not because im a bitter Scottish Bastard - that is a mere coincidence. I believe England has been pretty weak in the warmup matches and that the USA is a heavily underated side. Theres also the excessive pressure that always piles up on the England team prior to any major tournament so for them tow fuck up in their first real match is a genuine possibility.

My other coupon is for Uraguay to beat France.

Mon the underdogs!
