croatia? they'll have a hard time qualifying, let alone winning. and greece...i don't expect them to make it past the round of 16, if that.

i'm thinking that brasil will make it to at least the semi finals, but i pick england to win because brasil lost rivaldo. i guess ronaldinho is stepping up to take his place, but they need more time to develop. after all, they lost to ecuador not too long ago, and that proved how weak they can potentially be

as i'm reading that over, i'm thinking greece are gong to have a hard time qualifying too. they're in the (in my opinion) hardest group in qualifying. i think ukraine and turkey will make it out, and greece won't qualify.

and as for group 8 (croatia's group), i don't know. i think it's a toss up between croatia, sweden, and bulgaria. hungary could put up a surprise too.

rivaldo was too old he lost what he had just like baggio
he was very good a few years back but defintely lost it

Croatia is good (my country) Ivan Klasnic and Dado Prso are amazing and their defense is awesome, they can beat anyone anytime, ask Germany and France got lucky at Euro 2004, Trezeguet hand ball wasn't seen and it was a goal.

yes, i agree croatia are very good. but i just don't think they could actually win the cup. i guess there could be a surprise, but that's why i put the "other" choice on the poll. dado prso is amazing though.

cfrealmadrid (good choice of team, by the way)-

do you really think eng. could beat brazil? they didn't even win the euro cup!

don't get me wrong, i really like england, but i just can't see any teams beating brazil.

i think it would be a close game, but i do think england would beat brasil. it depends on whether they used the right strategy, but i think they would win. 3-2 maybe.

brasil are by no means a bad team, but i think england would be able to make them do all the work. greece will never beat a south american team. there are plenty of great counter attacking teams, none of which could stand for 10 minutes against brasil. the only way to beat them is to wear them down
