Are you all watching the WC?
What do you think about our team? Does it have any chance?
I was actually really surprised yesterday, pleanantly surprised though. :)
What team to you cheer for?

Still in the Knockout Phase
-Round of 16
What a great match it was yesterday.
The "old" players from France did punish the youngsters from Spain 3-1 for being a bit too cocky ( the player Raoul told the press before the match that it will be Zidane's retirement day, how wrong he was :-) ) and underestimating what the French team is capable of achieving.
If we can beat Brazil next saturday, that would be one step further towards the final and maybe the world cup ;-)
Let's wait & see.
Allez Les Bleus!
Italy is playing Ukraine tomorrow.
And in our votings Ukraine still has no chances at all.
Do you all think we will lose that bad? ;)
I am hoping for a good fight, that's for sure, nomatter Italy wins or not.
After the dreadful Swixerland game - from a neutrals perspective - we are probably just hoping for a better game, but not with much hope. The italians seem to have a bit of luck with them, or is it money so I think Italy will move forward on that one - sorry.
David Singleton:Not sure what this thread is all about???? The world cup finished yesterday didn't it? Wasn't Italy Australia the Final?
I just found the "technical paper" of the WC teams. After seeing it, I am definetly going for Brasil with the vote. Their tactics seem to foolish even the physical laws
PS: For couple of editions, my country team is missing from the WC, since 1998 . That time was our football gold generation of Gica Hagi and we had good matches and managed to beat toughest teams like Argentina and England. Hagi is known as the greatest romanian football player of all times.
