Soccer World Cup 2006: What is your favorite team? - Who will win the cup?

Hey,

lets talk about the soccer  cup, your favorite team and your opinion about the possible cup winner.

I support Germany and England (a lot more Germany but also a bit England). But I don't really think that both of them have only few chances to win the cup. 

My tip is Brasil…what is yours?

I suggest, that Argentina is has also a very good team. Most of their players are playing for some of the best teams in Europe. So they also have a very big chance to win the cup. Last time they had no luck and droped out after the preliminary round. But this time I assume they will reach further rounds and maybe the final.

About Oliver Kahn: I don't think that he is a better keeper than Jens Lehmann. They both have their advantages and they have different skills. Jens Lehmann fits a bit better in the team than Oliver Kahn.I don't thik that it was a decision only depending on sympathy  – not only the German coach likes Lehmann a bit more. 

I hope, that Lehmann doesn't have to face a situation like in the CL-Final a few weeks ago.

Italy was one of my favorites too. But I think after the troubles about the cheating and corruption affair they won't win the cup. They can't concentrate on soccer anymore after that. 

But maybe they will surprise me and will be strong though all that trouble.

I suggest, that Switzerland will already be a very good team in this World Cup. Maybe they will be the most surprising team during the World Cup. Nobody talks about them but they have some good players in their team – and they play a nice kind of football – fast, tecnically good skills and strong players.

 We will see.

Just one word about Italy. I'm ok if they eventually win but please, Italians, give us spectacle! Italian players are too accustomed to keeping the ball (the famous Catenaccio) and playing very defensive. They often have a quite closed play which doesn't allow an agreable watching.  It will depend on the trainer's system of course and his play view. Let's hope…

 and let the best team win the cup.
