Hmmm U.S. beats Spain..final against Brazil. Hmmm, I wonder. Wouldn't that be a shocker. A few surprises in S. Africa. Egypt over Italy and the S. Africans throwing a scare into Brazil.

But during World Cup I tend to be a Brazil fan.

It's being held in 12 months from now - temperature in Jo"burg today is a balmy 8 degrees. Cape Town has rain and has climbed to 15 degrees.

The World Cup is always around June / July, just never this far south - so although you will see sunshine, you will also see a lot of coats and hats.

And England will win it....with a Rooney hat-trick in the final against Portugal, with Ronaldo sent off in the first minute for being a twat.

Portugal will settle for that right now....

They're in serious danger of not making it at all.

Well I for one will be happy to see Ronaldo NOT being able to use the World Cup to stage his never ending prima donna theatrics....

My first love are the Italians but they made a right show of themselves in the Confederation Cup so I hope Lippi sticks a rocket up their tooshies and sorts them out by next June!!

True, but it would just be nice to see Ronnie doing his "going to cry" look with his hands on his hips as he gets a straight red...

USA looked ok in the confed cup, but you can never really tell till it starts. Trust in Fabio....

If Michael Bradley, the best player they have wasn't suspended, they might have nicked it too.

Doesn't everyone? I thought it was compulsory to be crap in your first couple of games, then go on and win it...that seems to be England's usual plan.

Apart from the "go on and win it" bit.

I'll only get excited when Scotland get to the finals and then beat England 6 - 0 in the final game.
