    I think Portugal are up there with Holland too.

    I agree with Mexico! Chicharito eh? <3

    Edit; I don't think Netherlands will actually. In the last world cup, Sneijder carried them. In a few years, he wont. I'm not aware of any amazing young potential, therefore it's Portugal/Mexico for me.

    Perhaps we're bias as Manchester United fans? .... Naaaaah! He's brilliant! He doesn't care about money, he doesn't care about fame, all he wants to do is score goals and help us win <3

    I'm not basing my decision on Hernandez Genuinely think they're pretty good and could win it some day. Although it's so tough to predict who could potentially win it. :rolleyes:

    Perhaps, Russia will be the new World Champion as host? It seem the Netherlands are the top favorite from most.
    Nah, that would be boring. Let's have a small arab peninsula win the world cup. I was beating people who were playing as Spain and Argentina with my Qatar squad 5-0 all the time. So that means they're due a win.

    Once countries like China, India and USA take a bigger interest in developing the sport they should be dominating. I mean in China's case when you've got a population of 1.3 billion there's so much potential talent out there. But whether football will ever be as popular there as here remains to be seen.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see USA win a world cup in the next couple of decades. It's growing quite fast as a sport over there.

    "Shoot, pass, kick their ass!!"
    That's like saying that the Afghan economy will be one of the largest in the world soon because it's currently growing rapidly. It's not hard to get good growth out of something that was an absolute mess to begin with!

    Is it that simple? Quality is better than quantity, and the country would need many things and people in place, many things. Even now 100 years on, a small country like the Netherlands would destroy the two biggest countries in the world, away from home, every day of the week.

    There's a big difference between football in the USA and football in India and China. It's not something that can be fixed by buying a top player to play for a club there.
