Not fancying Germany's chances then?

Not a bad team, will miss Ballack I think but the germans are always there somewhere in the final mix.

Have you seen the youtube of Spain's warm up 6-0 victory over Poland? The second goal. 8O Oh my. Spain are defintely up there amongst the favourites for me this time.

England vs Spain final. 3-2 England (Rooney hattrick, put a monkey on it)

I am a german living in spain, married to a woman from argentina. 3 options to celebrate a winner!

(last time brazil won was a big party here as well, I remember a spontaneous street parade with samba drummers and beutiful dancing people...)

This is one of those times when being self employed is GREAT
I plan to watch at least some of EVERY match
I'm not even a huge football fan
but world cups really light my candle
I may even have to watch the opening ceremony :-)
