    World Cup!

    Hi everyone, as the football world cup is a week away I thought I would see who everybody thinks is going to win it..... Safe money would be on Brazil, but does anyone think that any teams are going to surprise us. I personally think Argentina will win it and I think Uruguay will do well

    Well they are guaranteed to get out of the group unless Costa Rica pull off a shock!

    Argentina appear to be a good bet for Semi-Finals at least. My money is on Spain though.

    With our group I think we will lose to Italy, beat Costa Rica and trip up on Uruguay by the skin of our teeth. I am awaiting the normal dreaded knock-out stage penalty shoot-out.

    Spain are a decent shout because they'll keep hold of the ball and in that heat and humidity that could be the difference, having said that I would never count out Ze Germans.... Saw an interesting bet today Aguero to get the golden boot and argentina to win the world cup 33-1, worth a few quid

    I am a man of many bets in the world cup (and clean up nicely usually). My bet for the winner is Germany overall, the rest I will do on the day (every day) I will post up my tips, including scorers / final score and winners

    My son's 6th form farewell party has had to be rearranged. He is at a boys' school. The Pastoral Support Managers arranged it for the evening of June 19th when England are playing.

    Im not sure on who I think will win but as my team (Preston North End) has a couple of players playing for their country it will be nice to see them play at international level and do well.

    I'm bored with the thing already. After this, there will be TV will be taken over with Wimbledon, which might give me a chance to get through the ever growing pile of DVDs.

    I'd be bored too if I knew what was happening...

    Argentina are my fav's to win. Also think Spain are in with a shout even though the pundits seem to keep writing them off for some reason! If England get out the group stages then it will be a good World Cup!

    I'm with you on that one. Bleh. Football. Dull. I can't really do with sitting there watching any sport, really. Except maybe E-Sports. Sometimes. I'll make an exception for The International.

    FYI this thread is for opinions on who will win the World cup, not for people to say they hate it, it is boring etc

    Safe bet would be Brazil... outsiders Argentina, Spain & the Germans. Wildcard could be Belgium.

    Like someone else said, if England get out of the Group Stage will be a good World Cup
