But it should all be in good fun, I hope.

So considering I don't know much about these 2 teams except that the USA barely scored in the last World Cup, who is expected to win this match?


The USA has an excellent well balanced team, and it wouldnīt suprise me if they managed a 1:0 win or a draw to be honest.

The atmosphere in the ground, form on the day and other things come into account in World Cups not just the quality of the teams and I have a feeling this World Cup could bring up a few suprises.

All in all it should be good fun to watch after all thatīs what sports all about.

One thing for sure if football ever becomes popular in the USA with thier talented pool of athletes, racial diversity & potential financial input the US could win the World cup one day.

Oh God, oh God. The USA have a decent squad, and they're better than they've ever been but let's not exaggerate.

I don't believe the US football hype just like I don't believe the ''African international teams are on the same level as European and South American teams now''-hype.

The US will survive the group on a 2nd place, and will lose the 2nd round or quarter finals. No African team is getting past the quarter finals, maybe not even that far like last year, when supposedly an African team was going to progress far into the tournament.

Also, the US might win the World Cup one day but not because of their racial diversity. One of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard. After all, England and The Netherlands have almost as racially diverse societies, and they haven't won a tournament in years.

Thanks for the replies, guys. For the first time, I'm actually pumped about watching it. My 5-month old daughter loves watching hockey (seriously, she cries when they cut to commercial break), so maybe she'll get into the World Cup a bit.

They have a tough group with Portugal and Brazil, but I do believe they'll survive it. After that they're probably up against Spain, which I don't think they'll win unless they optimally utilize their strength and defensive qualities.

Of course the "Hype" as you call it is over the top, and I share your opinion about the African teams who, due to thier lack of disipline crap, keepers and in depth lack of quality will be lucky to get past the group stages.

As for my "racial diversity" comment this has been disgusted before on here. What my point is ,is that if you have a variety of races originating from arround the world you have more possibilities in the team. Without generalising too much smile Hispanics for good center of gravity, keep the ball flat play, Northern Europeans for disiplined and airial supperiority, African for athleticism and Indians to play cricket.

I donīt think Germany will get that far, they lack quality up front IMO. But they are a tournament team so you never know. The Netherlands tend to self implode at some stage in every tournament, odd really as from my experience the Dutch are mellow cool people.

He got permanently banned by the looks of it, probably for being his polite self. A shame really he would have added spice to this during the world cup. Hereīs his profile where it says why he got banned.

Lacking quality has never stopped them in the past though, has it? I know, but I have a feeling this will be our year. And about the mellow thing, trust me, most Dutchmen aren't. At least when it comes to that aspect of mellowness.

Would be a great final though, two of the biggest rivals in football facing off in the most important match they'll ever play. Germany took it in 1974, maybe we will this time.

France beating England...? France struggled against Ireland I don't think they have the faintest chance of ever doing any real harm this Cup.

Thatīs what makes it so exciting eh, the unpredictability.

Just hope that the Refīs arnīt "advised" to help the African countries out.

It may sound like some conspiracy but this clearly happened in the last world cup with Korea and Japan, especially the game where Spain had two goals disallowed against Korea.

Do you mean in 2002 where Korea got a penalty that wasn't a penalty and Totti getting a red card which wasn't a red card against Italy?

Remember back in 2006 when everybody said that France wasn't going to do that well, and they almost won it? Or back in 1998 when nobody expected them to do that well, adn they won it?


Sure, now you can say that they had great players like Desailly, Pires, Zidane and Vieira, but they weren't big stars back then.
