BIH view on World Cup 2006

The drawing of the groups for World Cup 2006 is just about an hour away. I'll post the groups as soon as they are annouced. After that, we can use this thread to look forward. We can make our predictions and so on. (and discuss any news related to the big tournament)

I don't think Croatia will do as well as in the friendly I hope they do but can't wait.

Group A

1.Germany-easily the class of a weak group
2.Costa Rica-I saw them play couple of times in the qualifiers,a solid team
3.Poland-always choke on the big stage
4.Ecuador-could pull of some upsets

Group B

1.England-they have great players,if they can get their shit together they can go far
2.Sweden- As much as I hate him I have to admit Ibrahimovssen is world class striker
3.Paraguay-have that gritty South American style of play,wont be easy to beat
4.T&T-no chance,I watched them vs Bahrain and they were awfull

Group C

1. Netherlands- Awesome team,one of the favorites to win it all
2.Argentina- Another team that is expected to go far,Messi is incredible
3. Ivory Coast- Outsiders,but with guys like Drogba and Calou anything is possible
4.Serbia-good team but Heidi screwed them, a win vs the Africans is their best hope

Group D

1.Portugal- got lucky with an easy group
2.Mexico- Rafa Marquez is world class, and Borghetti just scores goals,very solid team
3.Iran-have a better chance than past years with guys like Karimi,Mahdavikia and Daei
4.Angola-dont know much about them,im sure theyr just happy to be in Germany

Group E

1.Italy- Luca Toni and Gillardino are dangerous up front,and Italy always plays tough D
2.Czech Republic- got a tough draw but theyr as good as anybody
3.United States- Very solid team,play collectively,and Keller is a great keeper
4.Ghana- Essien will be fun to watch

Group F

1.Brazil-no comment neccessary
2.Australia- Hiddink is a great coach and it will be interesting to see Viduka vs Croatia
3.Croatia- will battle it out vs Aus for the 2nd spot,Srna and Prso are key players
4.Japan-could make some noise like at 2002 but its highly unlikely

Group G

1.France-easy draw for France,probably the easiest group of them all
2.Switzerland-good team,Frei has a chance to shine at the big stage
3.Korea-like Japan could make some noise but since theyr not home.....
4.Togo-dont know anything about them other that theyr an African team

Group H

1.Ukraine- Finally get to see Sheva at a major international tournament
2.Spain-always seem to choke at the WC,they needed 102min to beat us in Valencia
3.Saudi-Arabia-always at the WC, might challenge for 2nd cuz of weak group
4.Tunisia-Trabelsi is pretty good other than him I dont know much about them

Australia isn't going anywhere, sorry m8. Looking at the group ofcourse favorites are Brazil than Croatia. Japan and Australia I believe will fight it off for third spot.
