    I think Brazil's defence doesn't get as much credit as it deserves because it's overshadowed by the quality of their attacking play. If you look at the stats, you'll see how good it really is:

    Since (and including 1982) in World Cups, Average goals against per game:

    Brazil: .54
    Italy: .91
    Germany: .96

    Combine this with their flair going forwards and this is why they win so many trophies.

    Yes thats a good point and i do agree, i still think that the teams that keep ball possession consistently are the teams that will come through. Even a team full of the finest players will be punished if they give the ball away easily.

    I know thats obvious but its surprising how many teams do lose possession easily, England being one of them sometimes. I think Brazil excels in keeping the ball, better than most.

    Remember this game, it was a good one from coulpe years back goals from Argentina v Brazil 2013 Final score 4-3.

    England winning the World Cup!?...

    Nothing like a good joke to start the day.:roll:

    Australia or Japan have better chances of winning the WC than England...

    Dind´t occurred to you that i´m really joking and not saying this seriously?...

    Also for someone that says it doesn´t give a ****, you seem really upset and agressive about it but okay...

    Anyway, it´s good to see some people have a sense of humour...

    I wouldn't say Australia or Japan have a better chance of winning than England but the probability of any of them winning is so small, any difference in odds is insignificant!

    well dont expect anything of that. we only have 3 good players atm , and will play 1-5-2-3 instead of 1-4-3-3. no pressing forward, just pure counter attacking. :(

    Dare I say it but I think Belgium might be a better team than the Dutch this year but in terms of experience Holland are ahead.

    My guess is Eng plus Netherlands will get through the groups but after semis I think is the furthest. (v unlikely though).

    Van persie could play a big part if he gets fit. Plus I guess it's Robbens last go as well to star...

    Vlaar had a great season at Villa..(we need him next season bigtime).

    Cant wait to see some footy! Wishing you all the best of luck!!!

    Totally dont agree on that.

    look at this list


    there are a lot of players who play in the dutch competition (which i consider one of the weakest in europe).

    now look at belgiums list


    now notice how many players play in different countries here ?

    i think belgium has a better squad and also more experience. also the fact that holland plays in a new formation , something no one is really used to.

    I seriously cant see holland win one match. spain, chile and even australia seem stronger. last match holland vs wales was one of the worst matches i saw in the last years. it really hurts to see the team struggle like that.

    Anyways good luck , and enjoy! :thumbup:

    Sky are doing a deal of money back on your outright winner if Brazil win. Thinking about placing a bet on Germany or Portugal.

    OMG start already... I am pumped!!

    Croatia to win, you heard it here! >.>

    I am also quite impressed with the CBC stream. Streaming all games in HD with an interactive on the fly option to see the player stats, team stats, tactics, passes and line ups... wow.
