And here it is, the group stage of the World Cup 2006:
=========================================
GROUP A: Germany, Ecuador, Poland, Costa Rica
(Clear favourite: Germany)

GROUP B: England, Paraguay, Sweden, Trinidad & Tobago
(England of course! Although Sweden is very, very... very strong, I do not like them, because they have beaten us too many times in the past Wink )

GROUP C: Argentina, Ivory Coast, Holland, Serbia & Montenegro
(Holland, but Argentina also has a chance)

GROUP D: Mexico, Angola, Portugal, Iran.
(HAHA - Angola or even Iran - what a joke!!! Here goes Portugal or Mexico)

GROUP E: Italy, Ghana, Czech Republic, USA
(Sorry guys, USA is doing better and better lately, but still is no match for Italy or Czechia. Well - no sorrow, for sure you will beat Ghana! Wink )

GROUP F: Brazil, Australia, Croatia, Japan.
(Brasil, no doubt! bow Croatia is second)

GROUP G: France, Togo, Switzerland, South Korea.
(France)

GROUP H: Spain, Tunisia, Ukraine, Saudi Arabia.
(Here is Spain)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Some of the groups look like sure, but some are tricky... What you think?


P.S. A, michimike - I want my planet back! Flaming Angry!

Seeing that I am from polish decent I would like to see Poland make a run for it, even though the chances for it to happen are slim. Also the U.S. are in the toughest group people around hear are calling it the group of death and after seeing the last couple exhibitions it has given me some hope that maybe just maybe the U.S. can win their group.

And here I present my serious guess:

GROUP A: Germany, Ecuador, Poland, Costa Rica
Clear favorite: Poland *gg* ... and maybe Germany, because Ecuador and Costa Rica are too unknown^^
GROUP B: England, Paraguay, Sweden, Trinidad & Tobago
Sweden is of course the clear favorite of this group. Maybe Trinidad has a chance, but I think England will be second.
GROUP C: Argentina, Ivory Coast, Holland, Serbia & Montenegro
Loser group. Maybe African Champion Ivory Coast has a chance.
GROUP D: Mexico, Angola, Portugal, Iran.
First: Portugal, second: Mexixo
GROUP E: Italy, Ghana, Czech Republic, USA
Italy second, despite 5:0 against Ghana, but Czech will make it with 9 points.
GROUP F: Brazil, Australia, Croatia, Japan.
Brazil will win this group (and the whole world cup). Second: Japan.
GROUP G: France, Togo, Switzerland, South Korea.
Hmm, maybe France will win, second: Switzerland.
GROUP H: Spain, Tunisia, Ukraine, Saudi Arabia.
First: Spain, second: Ukraine

I really do not guess who will be playing the last game against Brazil - maybe an unexpected outsider and the good teames kick themselves out mutual. Or maybe the host Germany? Often the host is pushed up to the semi-final (see for example: Korea 2002, France 1998, ...)


P.S.: Nikoy, catch me if you can Laughing

Come on England!!


To you germans writing off your team - I think you may be suprised. Germany is always there towards the end of the compettion, and you cannot underestimate the power of home team advantage...

Who writes off his team? If you respond to my guess: I'm not from Germany.

And yes, I mentioned the home team advantage (Korea, France), so maybe this time the Germans could enter the semi-final.

Did you watch the game yesterday? They were really bad against Japan... with such a bad goalkeeper they have no chance. He only got so little goals in the past because of the good defence of Arsenal.

nice discsussion on here Wink

Did anybody see the game yesterday (germany vs. japan). ??

That was quite interesting, not a good game, but interesting.

First the german supporters stood right behind their team, but then in the beginning of the second half Japan became more and more quicker and better and finally shot two goals (0 - 2).

Up to the that point the fans cheered for Germany, but then they started to boo them - for sure, i say - but then the german team came back. after a standard (freekick from the left side from Schweinsteiger, Klose scored for chance) they were in, but never came really close.

Then Schneider brought from the right side the ball in and Schweinsteiger made equalled with head...

But then they didn't really tried to win it after all.... The Germans had luck not to lose the game, in the first half Japan had several opportunities to score... and the germans (especially Lehmann) had more luck than skill Very Happy

So, what i wanted to say is:

the spirit of the german team seems to be good, but the fans are at the moment not totally behind their team...

The german team shoult make to the quarter perhaps semi finals. but let's see.

My favorite for this cup is holland or spain.

Italy will be the loser team, too much trouble because of their affairs...
Brazil: i don't think theey make it.... i cant tell why.
Argentine: they are also possible to make it.

But we'll see Smile


Perhaps we can't start an intern bid thread??? Every one can pay planets in and the winner takes it all? Very Happy

Did anyone see the U.S.A v Latvia. although latvia isn't in the tournament the U.S. has been proving its self by playing well against foreign teams. So I personally belive they can make some noise.

Guesses:
Group A: Germany and Poland
Group B: Sweden and England
Group C: Argentina Ivory Cost or Netherlands(Don't really care)
Group D: Mexico and Portugal (Boring Group)
Group E: Italy and U.S.A.(the czech are going to fall on their faces)
Group F: Brazil and Japan
Group G: France and South Korea(it is going to be a miracle)
Group H: Spain and Ukraine
