If things go to form it seems like a Uraguay,Argentina,Brazil and Portugal semi line up.So basically its 3 South Americans and a European that can be mistaken for a South American.
Ofcourse lot can happen in between.

Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
Anyway here's hoping Spain are dumped out of the World Cup tonight.
So it's the lowest European representation since they first introduced a round of sixteen.

Just to confirm then, last two fixtures:
Brazil V Chile
Spain V Portgual
Get to work mods
I am really impressed with Spain. They didn’t lose some 14 games coming into the world cup before they lost their opening game to Switzerland but I have liked what I have seen. Brazil, as I said, is a strong, strong team and it is showing exactly that. The only thing which worries me regarding Argentina is their weak defense. USA is nicely placed in the first quarter. They are the 14th ranked team in the world and have a real chance of reaching as far as the semis which would be great for US football.
My predictions for round 2 –
Uruguay v Korea Republic – Uruguay
United States v Ghana – USA
Holland v Slovakia – Holland
Brazil v Chile – Brazil (Chance of upset given Chile came 2nd in South America if I am not wrong).
Argentina v Mexico – Argentina
Germany v England – Germany
Paraguay v Japan – Japan
Spain v Portugal – Spain (Game of the round)
Uruguay v USA – USA
Holland v Brazil – Brazil
Argentina v Germany – Argentina
Japan v Spain – Spain
USA v Brazil – Brazil
Argentina v Spain – Spain (Argentina’s weak defense showing up)
Brazil v Spain – Brazil
All five South American nations through to the last 16. They've all looked good too, which is a first in World Cups I've seen.
Could see four of them making it to the last 8 too.
I know a place where a royal flush
Can never beat a pair
Yep, I reckon four will make the last eight. Can guarantee you the dirty stinking Argies will go no further than though
BTW, got sent a txt that would have made Mitchell angry today haha
