    Germany & Poland, the Poles could easily top this group and their game against Germany will definitely be one to watch other than that for my mind the worst group in tournament by far.

    Miroslav Klose to cash in against Costa Rica and Ecuador.

    I wouldn't put it pass Bayern new boy Lukas Poldoski (Poldoski has recently signed for Bayern on a free if you didn't know) having a good time in this tournament.

    1. Germany
    2. Poland
    3. Ecuador
    4. Costa Rica

    I don't know too much about Ecuador or Costa Rica, so I may be wrong, but I rate Poland highly enough to expect them to comfortably finish 2nd.

    Costa Rica's main claim to fame would have to be that of Paulo Wanchope.(?)

    I suppose a few Derby fans wouldn't mind him back if they could afford his wages?

    I saw his first appearance, as sub for the reserves many years back, he played on the right wing and skinned about ten players during his run out, not long after that he made his first-team debut for us at Olf Trafford and scored a wonder goal; we won too

    On his day he was so incredible, but towards the end his day didn't arrive as often as it should. Must admit I haven't seen him play for a long time, has he still gorrit? The romantic in me says yes I'd have him back.

    Ballack out of opener

    From the beeb's site:

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Germany to win the opening game, even with Ballack out i think theres enough quality to get them through this important game, they'll prolly go hard early and i think they'll be 2 or 3 up by halftime.

    Germany are *****.
    Always have been ... boring, defensive ***** football.


    Honestly don't care what people say about that comment .... but to today/tongihts match ..... most attacking German team i've seen. Hence, I think they are decent. (Awseome goal to begin the world cup!!!!)

    Irrespective of that, germany are crud. All teams in group A are crud, .... Wanchope to get Costa Rica through

    Germany, Costa Rica, Poland, Ecuador.

    3-1

    I was wondering what on Earth I was watching in the first half, no diving at all.

    Germans making up for it in the second half, rolling around like fairies whenever they get the slightest knock. Back to extreme loathing for them.

    3-2 now...
