So.. Anelka is possibly banned from team France.. forever!
The team moral really is real weak, that sucks!
I hope the new coach can bring the team together, it seems very necessery after Zidane's departure.

France imploded today, England is teetering, Germany loses a man and the match and Italy has to flop for a gift goal tough times for those Euro teams so far.

If England can shake off all the home country pressure and just the game with their talent they should be fine. Germany had bad luck and should right the ship. Italy could win and still miss out and France is just SOL.

Tomorrow I'm looking forward to Chile making a bid for the group with a win and Spain will rebound and take it out on Honduras.

Mexico and Uruguay should be a great match and though it will tough I think Mexico is looking good for the win and to advance in 1st.

And then comes D-Day on wednesday- man oh man, USA v. Algeria to advance for us and going on at the same time England v. Slovenia. Talk about a pressure cooker for the whole group. Then Germany v. Ghana to determine which one advances depending on the Serbia v. Australia outcome.

Wednesday should be epic my friends- freaking cannot wait!

Well two interesting games so far. Portugal absolutely demolished North Korea and Chile edged out an 'Anti Football' Swiss side. Looking forward to Spain now in about 30 mins.

England and France are completely falling apart, although Italy aren't exactly impressing either, its England and France that are really surprising, the French are clearly cursed [heehee], Anelka's gone home, as has the director of football, whom also resigned, Patrice Evra and one of the coaches nearly came to blows in public too, and I simply don't know what's going on with England. Capello said if they lose against Slovenia then he'll quit.

While the whole France situation looks abysmal, they arguably have their easiest game ahead of them and chance to advance, though I wouldn't bet on it.

England and Italy, as poor as they have been, still have a chance of topping their group.

In the World Cup is doesn't matter how good or bad you look at a certain point in time, as long as you survive.

Spain, interestingly enough, garnered less points for their latest performance, but looked better doing it than the other European giants.

Out of Europe I see Spain and the Netherlands as the ones with the best chances to advance to the late stages.

Spain v. Portugal is an epic match and one I wish came later on down the line. The Netherlands have the easiest 2nd round match-up IMO. Japan is my pick as the biggest underdog to win against Paraguay. England v. Germany is another classic match-up and one that should see England break out of all the pressure they are under and actually just play instead of worrying about playing. That being said- I'll pick Germany as I still think England cannot play while trying to shoulder the massive boulder that is the pressure the homefans put on them- plus their goaltending is their achilles' heal.

USA will avenge the crap loss to Ghana from 2006- hate having to go against the sole African team left but this team just doesn't quit. We'll face Uruguay in the Quarters and *I hate saying this and will be pleased as punch if I'm wrong* and lose.

Argentina will face a stiff test in a game Mexico but prevail to wipe Germany and the stain of 2006 off the books and advance to the semis.

Brazil will beat Chile to set up a fantastic match with the Dutch- that game will be naughty to watch.


Thems my thoughts. To advance are:

Brazil
Uruguay
Spain
USA
Argentina
Netherlands
Japan
Uruguay
