    I saw that, and if you have a look at the statistics the deficiencies of FM, despite being such a great game, are clear. The average goals per game must be massive.

    Plus if you have a look at the screenshots in there it appears that the user is in control of England. I may be wrong.

    Voted for Germany. Depressing, I know, but actual quality has never been a decisive factor in German footballing success.

    Surely halfway between Australia and Brazil is somewhere near Angola?

    I'm going with yer Erics, although I have a sneaking suspicion Holland might join the ranks of winners.

    They did win the last major tournament in Germany, if you believe in omens....

    Australia always go deep into the WC on my games. I've seen them make the final twice.

    i won the 2018 WC with Australia on CM 01/02, it was a proud moment when we got the 90th minute penalty to beat Holland 2-1.

    I would love to say England, but unless England lift their game , I can't see it happening, from what I have seen so far of England. I expect England Sweden game to be a scoreless draw , the way the 2 teams have played so far.

    From watching the World Cup so far , the Team likely to win the World Cup IMO will be Argentina . They have set the Benchmark with the brilliant game last night against Serbia and Montenegro.

    One final thought on this:

    Back in 1966, England started that World Cup campaign slowly, and were really lucky to scrape a 0-0 draw against Uruguay. The other group games were 'OK' and frankly we were played off the park by a superb Argentina side in the quarter final until Antonio Rattin was sent off.

    It was a disgraceful decision worthy of any referee bought out by Juventus in more recent times (Paraphrased: "Give everything you see and some you don't"). We scraped past Portugal in the semis (Eusebio was utterly wonderful) and needed the help of a Russian linesman in the final, although we were the better team and had the best player on the field (Bobby Moore - despite Hurst's hat-trick).

    What I'm saying is that, if you get through the groups and the gods are favourable, anyone - ANYONE (even Australia) - can win the big prize (although I'm still fancying Brazil)

    So funny how everything seems to relate back to England...

    Still pretty happy with my Czech prediction.

    Sorry, not quite sure what you are getting at.

    I'm English, so consequently I'm going to use them as my frame of reference, yet that's probably the only post I've made about them today (spoken about Italy, Mexico, Angola - and even in the one above I spoke about how everyone who gets through is in with a chance), yet of course I've tipped Brazil and suggested that Argentina are the best side I've seen this year.

    I never mentioned Styris or sheep, so why did you chip in?
