Now let's see: who did FaaipDeOiad pick?
Indeed, I rate England fairly highly, at least on potential, and I thought they'd be a good chance to win it. Having seen all the teams in action I'm not so sure now, but I still think it's possible. I think Spain could possibly cause a bit of a shock too, they've been very classy so far.
Other than that, obviously Brazil and Argentina are good bets.
