I would prefer the semi-final line up to be:

England
North Korea
New Zealand
Switzerland

Very happy with the draw for England in footballing terms although its a nightmare for travelling to the games.

Fun Fact: South African Fans cheered euphorically when they saw the mexico was in their group and was gonna play them in their opening game.. Overconfidence??

Fun Fact: Lippi said an interesting quote (traduced):"The dificulty of a team rises if you consider a team easy or hard'

Australia, based on their qualifying campaign would also be worthy of a semi final place. Unlike Brazil and England, Australia did not lose a game in the final round of qualifying.

I understand your optimism etc, but I highly doubt that Australia is tio 4 of the world right now.. They have a tuff group against Ghanna and Germany, and serbia is always there to be an obstacle and if you dont take care of them theyll mess you up, like russia did..

I would focus first on getting past the group stage (very hard), to then think of then final 16th and if lucky 4th.. I dont mean to be a dick, thats just what experience has taught me ..

Also you cant ever compare England and Brazils competition against australiass.. even though asia is rising level, its still light years away from South American level, and European level..

Good job you qualified that statement by saying the final round of qualifying (although they did draw 2 of the 6 games).

Bit of a different story in the earlier rounds, losing to the powerhouses of China & Iraq.

Fun Fact: Maradona has now called up 102 different players for Argentina...

"If they criticize me for calling me 100 players, all call up 102"

Maradona called up 4 players to Play against Jamaica, that had a game with their club the next day.. He called Atletico de Madrid player Salvio, that was injured and made him play.. He is an authentic mess..

Argentina struggled to win 2-1, scoring in the 90th minute..

Diego Maradona ofcourse, celebrated like he won the WC Final..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJIUKTPBA-I

The game was just commercial, Argentina had to play it to complete a contract, like many National Teams..

Argentina has March 3, Fifa international friendy Against Germany, where they WILL have a reality check..

Maradona of course, will keep running the show, cause no one has genitals, to tell him he sucks


If mexico passes 2nd in there group, they will be up against argentina most likely... this is the American continent classico... And guess what, seeing things the way they are Mexico would win... If I can't stand Mexico fans now, imagine if they beat argentina, I would have to smoke myself..

That is neither fun, nor a fact.
It's more of a probable prediction.

It does sseem like an ok response to the previous post though :wink:
