    who do you pick to have a good tournament?

    i would say its a safe enough bet that if ronaldinho is fit then he'll again turn it on and light up the proceedings, other than that i would say Lampard will have a good tournament. But who does every one identify as the player that will really impress and be the find of the tournament?

    Lionel Messi - that guy simply tore up the chelsea defence and he has remarkable strength and composure for someone so slight and young

    Messi and Rooney are poised to set the tournament alight along with who else, Ronaldinho. Van der Vaart may shine as well as Robben. Landon Donovan could impress if he plays to the best of his ability.

    Johan Vonlanthen for Switzerland, not many people know him now but hes gonna be a star, another of the long line of players Guus has found and will go on to bigger and better things...
    Jason Culina for Australia, hes improved a hell of a lot and i think he will surprise a lot of people in Germany, he will end the tournament as our stand out player imo...

    Carlos Tevez of Argentina....
    if he does well in the tournament...he'll be a great player for years to come...
    He's sort of the Wayne Rooney of Argentina....

    he looks terrible at the moment but i wouldnt be in the least bit suprised if Ronaldo has another superb world cup. I also think Michael Owen will finnish top scorer.

    Once they play to potential for England Owen, Rooney, Lampard, Gerrard & Terry could really have great tournament. Looking at other Nations blokes like Ronaldinho, Adriano, Shevchenko, Buffon, Gilardinho, Robben, Drogoba & Messi.

    Drogba? He struggles to score goals in an outstanding Chelsea team, I hardly see him setting the world alight in a predominantly poor Ivory Coast outfit.

    i think that might be a little harsh on the ivory coast they have several talented players, including arsenals kolo toure and emmanuel eboue who are hardly second raters, their displays against madrid over two legs show that they can compete against continental opposition and come out on top. Personally i dont really expect drogba to light up the cup, but wouldnt be suprised if he pops up with several goals esspecially if the cote d'ivore advance beyond the first stage.

    I cant see Lampard having a good game.

    Gerrard and Rooney will shine.

    Ronaldo.

    Seriously. He may look fat & disinterested now, but he did before the last WC as well & this time he's not coming back from a career-threatening injury. Depending on what odds I can get I may even have a couple of quid on him as top goalscorer.

    care to explain? Lampard has a very good goal scoring record for England and plays better than Gerrard in most England matches

    Kewell anyone?

    Even The Kop were writing him off before this season. Now they love him...

    My BIG tip is Riquelme though. I think he's just gonna be on fire. Not a great athlete by any stretch of the imagination. But he just has so much technical ability and a great mind. His vision really is second to none. Wouldn't mind seeing D'Allesandro and Riquelme playing alongside each other in a few years time! My sympathies would be with the defenders marking them...Just don't open your legs!
