*Official* 2007 Football World Cup thread
Less than a week til it starts and no mention of it. Events of this magnitude usually have a forum of their own. :p
You all know the score. 22 people run around trying to kick a spherical object into a net. No invasion of personal space allowed, as it knocks the other competitor over. The team of 11 that puts the spherical object in the other team's net the most wins. Overall winner crowned best in the world.

have i missed smething?? :unsure:
Is this Under 19 or something?
Bah. Should have let him linger in ignorance.
Groups A and B look by far the toughest; NZ a bit of a joke inclusion and Denmark the weakest side of the European qualifiers make Group D quite easy for the hosts. Australia had some decent results and are probably better than four years ago, and while I'm seriously worried about organisation at the back for Norway, they should make it through from the weakest group in the competition. Canada a definite danger though, and Brazil/China in the quarters is not a healthy proposition either.
USA or Brazil to win it all, Germany are not what they once were - lack the physical mettle or, indeed, anyone but Prinz - and England have shown little at the highest level, European Cup win for Arsenal notwithstanding.
FIFA's been really clever, actually; putting us in a group solely consisting of countries who we fight wars against to get the patriotic juices following. :p
Seriously tho, we any good? Ranks low on the give-a-toss-ometer I'm afraid.
Who's that in your avatar?
Rachel Brown - goalkeeper, northerner, all round possessor of awesomeness
Where's Rachel Unitt?
What about her?
Well, she'd be better avatar material IMO. Not that I think of female footballers like that or anything.
