What a wonderful worldcup full of so many suprises. Did you see how Belgium almost beat Brazil.
Brazil can be beat. Look at how many suprises we have had. Argentina and France two of the
favourites went out so early. Senegal were never expected to go far Turkey have never ever come this
far. So many suprises. USA have come very far as well.

The question is how many more suprises remain.....

Its all made it far more interesting than usual, since you don't know whats going to happen next,
each game is tense and you can't just say "Brazil will win it" and walk away and be right.

England almost seem in with a chance this year because its all so crazy.

I'm sure another owen dive will give england the advantage over brazil... england have scored so
many goals in open play this world cup.

Ah, spoken like a true celt :-) Mind you, having seen Totti get a yellow for an incident which
seemed awfully similar today (and, incidently, how damned unlucky have Italy been this world cup?!),
they were damned lucky. It's that luck that, imo, may see them win the damned thing.

I'd be concerned about Brazil having the close control to run *at* the centre of the English
defence. Denmark showed up the full-backs to an extent, but I wonder how long the centre can hold
firm. I watch far too much club football to believe that centre backs go for more than a couple of
games without howling - and isn't the media attention on Ferdinand just setting him up for an og or
something :-)

And don't discount the Turks btw Omar. That's a very sound team with an awful lot of class in it -
remember, this is a team that came very close to beating Brazil. And Senegal - runners up in the ANC
and were the better side on the day but couldn't convert the penos.

Fwiw, semis are Brazil v Senegal; Germany v Spain (look - Spain are great and surely can'y be beaten
again - oh, alright then: South Korea in the semis....). Final? Oh, I'd love to say Senegal to beat
Spain, but you can't look beyond a 1-0 German vistory can you? Which is handy: I have them in the
sweepstake at work! :-)
