My favourite teams are England, Italy and Holland. Maybe if their was a confrontation between them i would be cheering for England.

I have also a sympathy for Denmark and Uruguay.

It will be a very intresting World Cup.

This WC sucks. I saw the groups. There is not group of death.....too many crappy nations compete.....

but on any case, im not bothering to watch the group stages and ill be focusing more on the quarter finals and so forth...

My vote goes for England, Holland, Spain......

But i didnt see they had a Other section...so ill put United States as well..
They are heavily under estimated
G-d bless America!

There isn`t a group of death, but certainly there are a lot of balanced groups.
Take Group A for example and you will see you can`t really reach on a conclusion in which team will advance.

Holland´s, Germany´s and Brazil groups are all tricky ones.

IMO we will have a a very intresting WC.

portugal is in a very hard group but i have my fingers crossed for them. I don't mind england winning and I think they also have a great chance, but i know that if they win, we won't hear the end of it. Would be nice to have a surprise this world cup and not see it dominated completely by europeans like last world cup

Well if we take a look, Europeans have only won WC´s on European soil.

And the only non european country to win a WC in Europe was Brazil in 1958.

So taking in consideration that this WC will be held in South Africa and if history confirms itself, there is a good chance for a non european country to win.

Argentina - I have always liked them + Maradona is one of my favorite all-time players
Greece - I like the country
North Korea - hopefully they can bring at least a little joy to their suffering people
Serbia - Ex-Yu country
Slovakia - Slavic country
Spain - I am a Barcelona fan + they probably play the best football currently

Yeah definitely Spain is plaing the best football lately. Let´s see how they will cope with the pressure of being the big favourites together with Brazil.

Don´t worry, they will probably be back in Israel sooner than we thought.

Mesilela with South Africa, Enyema and Aynegbo with Nigeria and Mayuke with Zambia.
Am i forgetting someone?

Today was the deadline for the 32 nations that will participate in the WC to announce their squads.

We will have "two representatives" in this edition in South Africa:

Andrej Komac, from Maccabi Tel Aviv, will play for Slovenia and Peter Mesilela, from Maccabi Haifa, will play for host nation South Africa.

Good luck for them.

One month exactly for the WC.
