Germany vs Italy -- Italy vs France -- Portugal v France
After watching the fantastic display by France yesterday I have to say that im cheering for France! I hope they play as well against Portugal. It's hard to say who's going to win in the Germany vs Italy match. Italy has an awesome defence (incl the goalkeeper) and there havn't been scored a single goal aginst them in this WC. However, they havn't had that hard opponents yet. Germany plays well too, so it's hard to predict. One thing, im 100% sure of, is that we'r going to have a european champion

Yeah. France's game yesterday was fantastic. They defeated the most successful team in history superiorly in standard time. Nice is also, that they verified the 1998 victory and proved that this win wasn't just home advantage or fixed in any kind. Well done Zidane & Co. ! [ July 02, 2006: Message edited by: Chris Baron ]
I'd prefer if it were France. Watching Zizou play against Brazil like he could when he was ten years younger was great. Portugal would be good too - since thay haven't won it before, and are capable of playing very attractive football (though it wasn't evident against England). Italy and Germany can be too negative for me to get behind them, but that does mean it will probably be one of those teams, since that's the type of play that wins competitions.

Germany lost! All major teams that I bet on earlier are out (Germany, Brazil, England, Argentina). But this is good for FIFA. New champions are welcome. Wish a country from Africa or Asia wins this cup at least once in my lifetime.
