    Yeah I know what you mean, they were my tip to win it until I pulled Brazil in the sweepstake and now I'm backing them all the way ..... I was reading an article on lionel messi http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/08/ma...=worldcup&_r=2 really interesting read

    I dunno, there is a lot of pressure on Brazil to deliver and opening games can give us some interesting results:

    1982: Argentina 0 - 1 Belgium (Argentina being reigning champions)
    1986: Bulgaria 1 - 1 Italy (Italy being reigning champions)
    1990: Argentina 0 - 1 Cameroon (Argentina being reigning champions)
    2002: France 0 - 1 Sengal (France being reigning champions)

    I wouldn't underestimate Croatia with Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic and Mario Mandzukic all having great seasons.

    I saw a stat this morning, the Host nation of a world cup have apparently never lost their opening game.

    I'm sure there will be nerves and a few squeaky bum moments, but I think they'll win by more than 1 goal.

    EDIT: also, Mandzukic is suspended for this game.

    Who do people think will get the golden boot.... I think Aguero is a decent shout as I think Argentina will get pretty far

    Croatia were 29/1 to win 1-0 so had a little flutter on that aswell!

    Less than 48 hours to enter our World Cup competition be in for a chance to win a ASUS ME173 or a Samsung ATIV Tab 3! Bonus appreciation for football related jokes and puns!

    Deep joy. With my daughter at uni, I am outnumbered. I guess it's football that I will be watching from now on. It's my fault; my wedding date date was dictated by the 1990 world cup!
