World Cup Winner

My guess is Argentina, with a 2:1 win over France at the final.

Spain usually doesn't do well on World Cups, so they're not very likely to win.

My bet is on France, I think they'll beat Argentina in the finals (if that's possible with the schedule).

You mean countries which have won the world cup outside their own continent? Brazil have in Sweden 1958 and in U.S.A. '94.

I don't think France and Argentina can meet in the final. They'll meet in the semis. Or any round before that.

I want England to win, but we have too many injury problems in the midfield... so I think Italy will win it. They're probably the best European team at the moment. They'll beat France in the final 2-0, and get revenge for Euro 2000

¡El equipo español golpeará los extremos de el resto de equipos con el pie fácilmente, España va a tomar a la taza este vez y nadie puede pararlos!



(transilation: The Spanish team will kick all the other teams' butts easily, Spain is going to take the cup this time and nobody can stop them!)



Babel fish owns



Edit:
LOL!!!!!

It doesn't own at all
Just trying to see if it will give the right result, I tried transilating the spanish part again (to get it I transilated from english right) and it gave me this:


"The Spanish equipment will easily strike the ends of the rest of equipment with the foot, Spain is going to take to the east cup time and nobody can stop them!"


Spain will lose but their equipment will win the cup of the equipment football games?

And how did it know the games are at Japan and south-Korea? It said "the EAST cup"!

I back Italy to win too.

France already have Pires ruled out and Henry is doubtfull and I am not convinced by the erratic yet brilliant Barthez.

I also hope that Spain & England do well because they always underachieve (oh and I am 1/2 English).

Hey! Where is Cameroon???

Btw.. I think that fromsej did not include Brazil's 1994 victory,since he regarded the whole north and south america as one continent. Cause otherwise also Brazil's victory in 1970 and Argentina's in 1986 (Both in Mexico) would have been included too. So 1958 is the answer.

Cameroon wins.

I wasn´t very excited some days ago, but my nationalism got up again when I saw that a british guy (those bastards! ) wrote a book called "Futebol - The Brazillian Way of Life" and says that Garrincha was probably the most skilled player of all the times.
So, Brazil, of course!

France will get to the final but will lose 2-1 to Italy.

Hmm. Spain have fairly easy group... but then again, for the past few years they've had fairly easy groups and messed up completely. But then again, they are in the easiest half of the draw, and should really get to the semis, given the strength of their squad. But then again, they always do crap.

Belgium or Russia might do quite well. They've got a very easy group, and in Round 2, they'd avoid the best teams (apart from errr Brazil). Whoever wins Group H could get to the quarter finals quite easily.

According to FIFA 2001; yes.
But I don't know if they're officially recognised by FIFA: somehow, I doubt it.

Hmmm... I guess that they joined AFC (Asian football association) and also then FIFA for a few years ago, but I am not sure. Ill check soon.

I think they do have an official team. I remember reading an interview in an Israeli soccer magazine with their national coach, Azami Natzar (right spelling?). But I don't think they participated in the qualifying games.
