Thread: World Cup 2010 - Who is your pick?

    World Cup 2010 - Who is your pick?

    With the big tournament fast approaching, who will you be picking to win?

    I'm picking Holland, but always have a soft spot for England (even though I know they will fail miserably). My second pick is Spain.

    I've got Spain to win.

    USA as my dark horses.

    I got a feeling England will squeeze past the group stages & fail in the Quarters.

    I think it is Spain's to lose. Brazil and Argentina in the top four, England falters after group play, USA doesn't make it out of group play.

    Semis
    England V Netherlands
    Germany V Spain

    Final
    Netherlands V Spain

    Winner
    Spain

    although I hope it is the Netherlands

    Brazil.

    I would be surprised if Holland get near the final.

    This is probably the most potent Dutch forward set up in WC history. If the defence holds well, they should score goals often enough to go deep into the competition.

    If this was in Europe I would tip Holland with a lot of confidence, but an African based tournament might throw up a lot of upsets.

    Brazil v Holland in the final and Brazil to win.

    England desperately needs Wayne Rooney to play every game and score often. He is the key and I think he can get them to the semis.

    The big disappointment I reckon might be Argentina.

    checking the draw it appears for that to happen 1 of them would have to place second in their group then win matches from then on otherwise they meet in the 2nd round.

    That is part of the problem with deciding. I have no idea who will win, but as I will be on holidays for most of the tournament I will watch the games.

    I am looking to watching the Australian games, Brazil, Chile, Germany, Netherlands and Grgeat Britain.

    I would to see Australia v New Zealand final - I am dreaming...
    Continuing to learn is one thing in life that has to continue.

    Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland aren't in the World Cup.
