    Default 2006 FIFA World Cup: Who are YOU rootin for?

    Ever since the first WC I watched (98'), I always liked Brazil. They were always one of my favorite teams, even though they don't have mah boi Rivaldo no more. BUT, I like Ronaldinho and Ronaldo is the ****. But, my main team is Portugal cuz of mah boi Pauleta! I also like Argentina. So my main team is Portugal, then Brazil, then Argentina. Sadly.....India won't make it...............................

    my first WC i watched was italy 90. That and the one from USA 94 were the best i've seen
    since Romania didn't qualified this year, i'm rooting for my alltime favorite, Holland. Also, i'll be supporting the smaller teams such as Trinidad & Tobago, Togo, Ecuador, Angola, Iran
    I also like Argentina & Brazil, haha

    What about the games? So far Germany had the best one, that 4-2 in the opening, 2 magnific goals, USA lost 0-3 to Czech Republic.. that was pretty predictable

    Tonight's the big game: Brazil - Croatia

    BTW, Trin, if you still can't watch the games, get yahoo messenger and i'll connect the webcam to the tv tunner

    well.. togo lost to south korea 1-2 after leading 1-0 at halftime

    rumor is that the Togo shamans made some charms and predicted they will win by either 1-0 or by 2-1.. :-<

    anyway.. it was a pretty poor game if you look at the quality, but at least it was spectacular

    i showed brazil for my favourite before tournament but they didn't play good in their first 2 match. and my second favourite is czech republic. they lost ghana but in this match they didn't have any real forwards. if baros or koller returns from injury, czechs will have a big win against italy

    With Brazil is like this.. if they play bad in the groups they play much better afterwards. If they start the groups with huge wins, they slow down in the eliminatory phases.
    They have a great team (and a great coach), by far the best, at least on paper, if they trip somehow (i doubt they will) then it would probably be because of too many talented players trying to take the spotlight.

    one of the best games is right now Argentina - Holland. I've always been a fan of the Netherlands back in the good days.. i still sympathize them

    Australia play Italy in 2 hrs.

    Will be extremely tough and hoping Harry Kewell laces up but they have done our country proud getting to where the have no matter what the result is.

    Still hoping the boys can pull off a huge upset all the same!

    Good Luck Aussies!!!!

    I think Portugal are in a fair bit of bother after beating the Netherlands. 2 of their players were Red carded, Christiano Ronaldo looks to be out for the tournament with a thigh injury and Figo might be getting charged for head butting.

    Now they come up against England who, on the other hand, have not played that great in this tournament yet. I have Portuguese friends so I am hoping they do well but think they might struggle against the Poms who will field a healthier Wayne Rooney and the masters themselves - Steven Gerrard and David Beckham. Just unfortunate that Michael Owen's Cup campaign was cut disatrously short.

    cruel game last night.. portugal vs holland. it was very nice in the first quarter, but way too raw in the second. fair-play lost its meaning.. holland goes home

    0-0 at halftime australia vs italy. i don't have a favourite, but i hate Vidouka :P i don't care much for italy either..
