Really? As a good German I always cheer for my team, but I'm feeling worse about things this time around than in a looong time. We're relying on an old striker and a good number of players have recently been injured. But hey, I'll take your guys' optimism!Germany is definitely up there, as is Spain. However, I think Brazil has a good shot at winning -- but this is a crazy sport, many surprises await. I'm looking forward to watching the games!
Now to find out how to wiggle out of work to watch games. Really excited!
They should make the entire cup just in Manaus...
France & Argentina are in weak groups, so they are likely to win their group & their first knockout match should also be easy. England & Portugal are serial under-performers so it would be a surprise to see them do well.
Even though the USA coach says our group is tough, Spain's is worse with Netherlands & Chile & Group D with Uruguay, England & Italy is also rough. Belgium looks good to win Group H as does Colombia in Group C.
Let the games begin.
