    So its 4 days to the official start of the 2006 World Cup :)

    Most of the teams will be making their way over to Germany in preparation for the group stages.

    I dont want this thread to turn into a flamefest and rather have it as an ongoing discussion for the games / players / results and any other funny/weird stuff that usually occurs at these events :)

    I'll be supporting England obviously, pretty sure i read they're second favourites after Brazil but well we'll have to see about that :sick:

    Who are you gonna be behind? Any plans on where you'll be watching the games or maybe you're even gonna be travelling over there?

    I'm from Wales, so I'm supporting whoever's playing against England. :D

    I watch footie every now and then, but I'm not a big fan. I'll probably watch a few games. Looks like England have a fair chance, but my guess is Brazil will probably win again.

    I'am following all my own country matches.
    And all the good matches like Brazil - Aus.

    I think most countries are playing boring....
    Let's just hope for some action later on =3.

    Hes right. Germany has Schweinsteiger and Podolski ( Schweini & Poldi^^).
    Ballack is very good too, but have you seen Bernd Schneider? This guy is more brazilianer than Brazil self. Okay, Oli Kahn doeant play but Lehmann is a good goal keeper too.

    Whats youre opinion about the German National-Team and have you seen the match against Poland?^^

    Argentina have been playing great, I think they could win. As for Italy, they won't be getting anywhere if they keep playing like they did against the USA the other night.

    Will England support their fellow European countries if they're knocked out? I doubt it.
