    I thought it was a pretty good pick up, even though Argentina is always an arguable favorite, they will find a way to lose.

    So now he's going to be using the Hand of God from the sidelines? My prayers go out to the opposition. [​IMG]

    I don't think so.

    I respect him whole heartedly as a player, but I don't know about a manager.

    That Argie backline doesn't scare anyone and I don't think Veron and Gago will be patrolling in front simultaneously.

    I actually see Spain taking it again, unless Portugal can get it together. Manuel Fernandes would have to develop into the world-beater we saw glimpses of atBenfica to solidify the midfield and Quaresma looks a lost cause at this point.

    Or if Capello gets some balls and pulls out this line-up, ya never know...

    Very rarely does a great player transition to a good coach.

    Although I am a big fan of Brazil, I also support Argentina besides the fact that these two teams despise each other. This world cup, I have faith inArgentina. It's time for South America to reclaim their throne!

    It's going to be between Argentina and Brazil.

    No European country has ever won the World Cup when it was hosted outside of their continent.

    People are sleeping on Brazil for some reason, when are Brazil NOT contenders? 2010 will be better for Brazil because Dunga picks players based on performanceunlike Carlos Alberto (who refused to drop Ronaldo's fat a.ss) and Brazil will have less pressure on them.

    Argentina are loaded with talent as usual, their depth is unbelievable. To the poster above who said "no one is afraid of Argentina's D", theyhave some of the best defenders in the world. Anyways, I expect Argentina to be an all-out attacking team under Maradona, as the famous saying goes..."Thebest defense is a good offense".

    I also think that an African country will make it to the semi-finals. Nigeria, Cameroon, Egypt, Ghana are Africa's best teams and with considerable fansupport and favorable refereeing (word to South Korea 2002), chances are that an African team will make it far.

    LilJRDN, you can't root for rivals. Utter hatred for the enemy is part of what makes football the beautiful game.

    I'm not Argentine, nor a die-hard Argentina fan. Just a fan of entertaining futbol.

    didn't mean you tevez. i'd agree with your point about african teams but i just don't see it happening. ivory coast might be the best bet, buttoo much rides on drogba.

    I'm Brasilian and of course I'm taken Brasil, but Cameroon is going to be a problem.

    No. If his life is any indication, he is not good at organization.

    just look at Brazil's last two games against Portugal and Italy. They KILLED two of the best teams in the world.
    At this point, I think Brazil is clearly the best team in the world.
