    Still have great hope England can win it, but right now Argentina are favourites along with Brazil they may have started slowly but they can lift their game.

    Argentina are the most impressive team so far, but the team playing the best footy at this stage of the tournament doesnt always win the World Cup...

    Can someone tell me why some people are suggesting that Brazil and Italy have 'started slowly' yet England and Portugal are crap?

    Eddie, I was just discussing that with my boss. It's because it's cool to slag England off, and just as cool to love Brazil. Simple fact is, Brazil have started just as bad as us, but the thing is, they've been lucky to win their games, whereas however poor we were, we still deserved the points.

    If we were all like a certain north-easterner, I'd expect the kind of nonsense some like to ram down our throats time after time, especially from our upside-down brethren.

    However, when it comes to arrogance, despite the fact that Cecil Rhodes said "Remember only this, that you are British, and in the lottery of life you have won first prize", some are more like us than we ever were.

    Yes, the irony is a lot of the vitriol that is spouted forth about us sounds just as bigoted and pathetic as the element it's supposedly aimed at.

    Interesting that nobody tipped Spain. If I had my vote over again, I'd go with them. Just a hunch.

    Incidentally, might be interesting to do another poll like this after the group stage, and see who the new favourite is.

    Brazil first convincing performance yesterday for me would put them back as favourites, Argentina also have a good chance, watch out for the Azzuri they could really light up this tournament & England the loss of Owen could trigger something big.

    I wouldn't pick spain as favourites even though they have started superbly again because they always stumble in the latter stages of the WC, for me they would have to reach the final for me to think that they could actually win.

    This may come back to haunt me but I would put everything I own on Spain NOT winning the World Cup.

    Things do not stay the same. Playing well in 1st round means nothing and its possible teams can peak to soon.

    Im very confident that Spain will not win the whole thing (I just dont put them in the top few teams in the World)
