    Almost time!
    So let's see who the CCC experts are!
    Who is gonna win?

    Italy?.....err.. oh ya...lol..A--HAA!!!
    Germany?
    Brazil?
    Portugal?

    Or will Vladdy orchestrate a Russian plot for the hosts to win?

    How will the English fare?
    Will they get past the quarter-finals? @Steve

    I am far from an expert but I am saying:

    SPAIN

    (Only because I love Las Ramblas in Barcelona, and Mar wants to live in Majorica someday)

    What say You?

    This dude was on the Corona can in my USA transfer. And I am pretty sure this the Mexico team, and they are basically Eagles colors. So I am going with them for the win.

    (Clearly I know nothing about the world cup)

    What does Salcedo mean?
    Is that the brand of beer?

    Hey looks like North America has already achieved a win!

    The United bid (Mexico/USA/Canada) won the right to host 2026!.
    Finally Canada gets some World Cup games......and weakly backdoors into the tournament.

    That's the player on the can (It was actually a corona).

    Can't you tell the image on the can is pretty much an exact likeness, hahahahhahaha.

    Oh...
    I thought it was an animated mascot or something.

    BTW...I like your reasoning for picking a winner.
    I got to find me a country with Vikings colors.

    I was going to say Spain or Brazil. I'll go with Brazil since Spain just sacked their manager.

    No, England wont make it past the quarter finals, they'll likely be playing Germany if they even make the quarters and we have a very poor record against them.

    Probably wont be taking too much interest myself this year.

    Lost interest in the Premier League years ago. Too much money spoiled the competition, same 4 or 5 teams winning everything year in year out for the last 20 years. I take more interest in the Championship which is the 2nd Division where my team play. As a result I know very little about the players in the current England team.

    Also quite a lot of matches are at 9am my time, I used to enjoy going to a bar for a couple of hours before the game with a bunch of other fans, enjoying the build up with a few beers. The games are too early for that this tournament.

    Plus 50 years of consistent failure doesn't exactly bode well for our chances this time around :)

    Janet should be super happy Mexico beat Germany it was highly unexpected but we're super happy if they play super hard they might have a chance they're looking good but Spain and Portugal are excellent teams this year

    Really tough pick at this point. Going in, I picked Germany and Spain. One game in they have one point (Spain) between them.

    The CUP is wide open!

    Good luck to Mexico on Saturday against Korea I hope they play with fire intheir eyes and Power in their feet I kind of have to watch a lot of football or should I say soccer for some people to celebrate with my husband it's only every4 years
    And since he's doing a lot for me now since I was just in a pretty bad go-kart racing accident though a lot of teams that aren't so good per se are playing pretty hard against the powerhouses it's good to see there's more competition than just a bunch of powerhouses winning though I do like some of those teams as well

    Man, I would like to be a fly on the wall of your house if that would happen!
    That would put you in quite the situation.
    Jannet would kick your ashe:confused:

    Nahh Jannet will be fine. You can take a man out of England, but you can't take England out of the man.

    Our daughter is into all things South Korean at the moment, so she'll be supporting South Korea on Saturday against Mexico :(

    Did anybody see the Argentina game it look like Messi was messed up it seemed like he was in another world they said the goalie ran more during the game then Messi did I think Messi got a lot of Rift for not making the penalty shot in his first game but he's probably only thinking about going back to making his 20 million I think in Barcelona I feel bad for the fans that really wanted to see him play he did not make a good attempt shame on him I do hope that Mexico goes far In This World Cup I definitely would have one happy husband though he does love Portugal and Spain Brazil pet played today so we'll see this world cup seems a little bit more competitive that all the power heads aren't winning easily lot of times tying or losing one of the station's was picking the 11 best players of the World Cup so far Mexico got four and some of the other teams got a few but I think Mexico has to hit the target the goal a little bit better and harder

    Way to go Mexico 2-1 over South Korea your daughter might not be happy Steve but your wife is. I love a lot of the other European countries but it would be so nice for a country that didn't have chances to go play in Europe to actually win the world cup or definitely make it to the second round keeping my fingers crossed if it keeps going like this I'll have one happy husband

    Yes, a nice win

    Hopefully Mexico finish top of their group so they can avoid Brazil in the last 16. If they can get to the last 8, then providing England do too then it's going to be England v Mexico.

    England's second game tomorrow.
