Right, here's my tuppence worth...

'Football', as is contained in the name, is a game played with a ball, at the foot. Not hands. No throwing (other than to return the ball to play when out of bounds.) Americans have such a hard time accepting this. Your game should be called something like, 'throw-and-catch-occasionally-kicking-ball' or something. Don't get me started on the World Series...

Someone mentioned that only the Americans call anything other than 'soccer' football, but I must disagree. The Aussies also have a 'running-jumping-throwing-punching-kicking-ball-game' that they call 'football'. It's better than American 'throw-and-catch-occasionally-kicking-ball' but it's still not Football.

Glasgow Celtic are the greatest team in my eyes, but then they're kind of glazed and biased. We just signed Roy Keane - he's too old but hey, He's Roy Keane!

I hear everytime soccer comes up in my school that it is the 'fairy' sport. It just shows a lot of people ignorance at how well soccar athletes are conditioned and just because they don't tackle people into the ground and try to hurt other people doesn't make it a bad/fairy sport.

I personally like Rugby better than any of the sports that I've played. I really like soccer too though because apparently I have extremely good stamina and endurance.

Germany?! I hope not; anyway I don't think they're the team they used to be. They've won all their games so far but even with Argentinas weary match against Mexico, I think they'll lose to Argentina. We'l find out June 30th.

Of course I'm backing England, and with Portugal having problems with Rinaldo and two players red carded last game, we have a very god chance-w got to beat them after last time.

My moneys on Brazil-they didn't play too good against Ghana, but still won 3-0. They just score goals.

I see what you mean about brazil. 1 of the portuguese red card players was Deco, not sure about the other one.

Did you see the Spain - France game. Henry shouldn't of got that free kick against Puyol. If he didn't it would gone to extra time and then penelties which spain would of won. If you haven't guessed by now I like Spain.

Germany won against Argentina! Even though they went into overtime they were still able to pull it off. It's a bit disappointing though because my cousin said that if Argentina won then it would show that Mexico lost to the better team. Yet after losing to Germany it just proves that Mexico sucked in their game with Argentina! They had so many shots and blew all of them. My money right now is on Germany and Brazil ...

The US is about the only country that does not appriciate football[soccer] as the rest of the world. They kind of like it if and only if they are winning but when they are not part of it they bad mouth it and ridicule it. I mean damn its a better sport than golf!

thats it.... i cant take this..... england's out. as much as i love ranoldo, i feel like ripping his hair out. oh well, he is a spectacular footballer. one of my favourites. yep... germany's already won. i can feel it. but im not supporting them. jus stating the obvious.
everyone assumed that brazil will win, but if you paid attention properly from the start youd see they werent playing as well as normal. and they were so awful against france.
