    First World Cup to be held in Africa. I should be there! Who'll carry the cup?

      Netherland
      England
      German
      Brazil
      Argentina
      Spain

    I hope England and we are looking good in qualifiers, would be nice we havn't had it since 1966! But realistically i think maybe Spain or Brazil but who knows?

  3. sschilke profile image81

    Spain has had a World Cup history of melting down, but this time I believe they are poised to win.  Their technical mastery is unparralled at this time.  Even Brazil, as skilled as they can be, do not play with the sophistication or tactical awareness of the current Spainish team.  Unless totall disaster strikes the squad (Spain) I do not see them losing.

    Cameroon.  I love their style of play.

    1. fierycj profile image74
      fierycjposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      That's a good one. Cameroon. How about Nigeria? We have to qualify first, though. Tunisia Vs Nigeria on the 21st will decide who qualifies in the group. My fingers are crossed.

    As a proud Englishman my heart says England and I believe we possibly have as good a chance as we have had in recent years, plus for many players it will possibly be their last chance to win an international prize.  However my head says Spain will take some beating, and as always the two south American giants of Argentina and Brazil can never be discounted, along with Germany and Italy and possibly France.  Also South Africa as the hosts can't be discounted.  However, if I had to choose one team I would say Spain followed by Brazil, England, Germany and for some reason I feel America are in with a chance.

  9. Sufidreamer profile image82
    Sufidreamerposted 8 years ago

    I would have to say Greece or England!

    Maybe it is time for an African team to win it - long overdue.

    Australia will beat England (hehe! and ouch!!) in the semi finals 3-1.

    Brazil and Germany will be tied 2-2 after full time in the other semi finals but Brazil go through in penalty kicks 14-13.

    So Australia will meet Brazil in the final. Tim Cahill scores the first goal in the 35th minute but Germany will level the score at the 41st minute (my crystal ball is not revealing the scorer yet) and Australia will bring on John Aloisi after Vince Grella gets injured in the 43rd minute.

    Full time score 1-1 between Australia and Germany. Then Australia score the golden goal in the 3rd minute of extra time through John Aloisi and the Aussies win the World Cup...yaaaaaay!!! Aussie Aussie Aussie...Oi Oi Oi!!

    England? Seriously? I'd love it to be true but as long as I've been alive we have been no where near the best in the world. As to who will win it I have no idea...

    JamesCurtisposted 8 years ago

    Although AW Sydney I'd love to see a World Cup final goal from Super Timmy Cahill - he's well on his way to being an Everton legend.

    I would say Brazil or Spain

  21. egiv profile image68
    egivposted 8 years ago

    Haha I would be surprised to see England or Australia do so well, but who knows! As an American I want to use this summer's Confederations Cup (even though we lost to Brazil) to say that we have a shot, but as a soccer (football) fan I would have to lean towards Brazil. After beating Messi and the gang 3-1, it's tough to see them losing.

    I'm all for a new winner though!

    I'd love to see a Brazil England final go to extra time.

    Can say the stadiums are near completion. Have one virtually outside my front door in Durban.

    The debate in South Africa right now is if Fifa will allow the supporters to use the Vuvezelas or not. During the Confed cup, the din overcame alot of the players.

    If they allow them, then I might have to go with an African country used to playing with the noise.
