Other times i have broken through the defense or fou...

I think with Germany the crowd will help them through rounds 1 to the quarters and then they will buckle under pressure of having to do well and choke in the semis (or eariler) but if they can play well enough through the first 2 rounds and really give their confidence a b...

just to clear a few things up: 1: england are very good, and have even better potential. i think that when something gets over publicised, people tend to go the other way and ridicule it, like with Beckham and the whole English team. 2: France should not be in the top 5, it saddens me to say it but ...

i think if FIFA were to impose that rule....i cant even explain it!

i guess what im saying is that just assume that the american samoa produced a fantastic player, a zidane or ronaldo or henry and they would have to play in the amarican samoan legues? (if there are any)
