Brazil's group has already been pronounced this year's 'Group of Death.'

On the flip side, I like that Italy got into a fairly favorable grouping.

North Korea will play like every player's life is on the line.

Correction from Dear Leader: Every player's life IS on the line.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Am I to understand that the teams you have in italics are your picks for the top 2 in each group?? If this is the case then you picked Ghana over Serbia? Are you bloody insane? That must be some wacky tobacky you've been smoking...

Who do Serbia have other than Vidic? Ghana have Essien and Pantsil.

Ghana rocks. They did really well last World Cup. Where was Serbia? - Serbia is not that great of a team (though I am Albanian and you can toss that up to me hating them in other ways ;) heheh)

I hope Italy wins - I've been an Italy fan since I can remember and about had a heart attack when they beat Germany last time lol.
I could give a f about no haters as long as my ishes love me.

I was a liberal before I was a libertarian (only was a libertarian for about 2 years of my life - mostly because of Ayn Rand, but I grew up apparently). I'm a liberal again.

I've always liked hip hop- never really listened to it much until I started dating Lwerd, though. She likes it a lot. I like it more now.

I've always liked Italy. Albanians in general like the national Italian team (because our team blows and you need someone to root for). My father has been a fan his whole life - so have all my cousins from back over seas whom I always talk football with. I've always been an Italian fan.

But until you started dating L you were a Libertarian.

1 point to me.

Ireland sucks but we don't root for England. Though you guys are another level of suck I suppose. Wouldn't greece suffice since Italy invaded you guys about 70-ish years ago?

I hope Spain does well, and USA.

Honduras would be nice to see.

Spain have it easy, and Honduras might have an off chance since they're with Spain against Chile and Switzerland. If they can beat Switzerland, they're home dry. Unlikely though.

USA are up against England, Algeria and Slovenia. Not too hard, but Slovenia beat Russia, so I'd put money on England and Slovenia.

Lampard, Torres, Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo (agreed), and Messi in my opinion.

I'm excited to see Cannavaro play, also. Great defender.

I haven't seen the squads yet. Ronaldo tends to get retarded when it comes to playing for Portugal and Ronaldinho mightn't even be picked if he isn't an AC regular.

In terms of young players - Walcott, Messi, Lloris\ Mandanda (French Goalkeepers)

Your opinion? You Google'd the best soccer players lol as for me, I don't keep up with any European football aside from the Italians (and World Cup... to see how far Italy makes it).

I like Cannavaro - though he plays for Spain now, Giovinco (Panda I believe he's on your FIFA team now) and other select players from Milan and Juventus though the only soccer jerseys I have are for Roma <3. I love Totti alwayzzz.

Ps. Comoncents - No, I wouldn't say Beckham (though he's good)... but if I were blinded by looks, I'd love the #1 soccer player - Ronaldo - because he's gorgeous... but I don't like him (Or Man U).
