I voted for Italy. It willbe quite a boring game if weplay them in the final, they will wait for us and we will only have 3 attacking specialists.....but then again, those 3 make the best attack of the world!

Are tactical system is mainly suited for the other "big" teams. France like to play in a moderate attacking mode, but if we play them i believe they will attack usmore than we will attack them.

And Argentina will be a "champagne on ice" for us, as they will come out to attack and we are completely different team than the one of the last game, where Felipao made those pathetic calls!

You have China there, but no Denmark. I think many people are underrating our strenght, and I hope we can do something good now that there isn't much pressure on us :). Already forgot about 98?

I voted for Italy also.With eight players playing in their own half is a tough team to beat.Argentina IMO is the least of my concern.We will get them big time if we play them in wc.

DBOY,I didn't forget the game in 98.It was a great game I just saw it the other day in my friends tape.

Great. I also thought it was a memorable game, I was just heartbroken Schmeichel had chosen this day to do all the f*ckups he hadn't done for years. IMO he should have gotten at least one of Rivaldo's goals. But I could still be proud afterwards, as I think we put up one hell of a fight, and it must surely have been a very intense game for Brasilero's aswell, eh :)? Also a damn shame that we didn't go further with the Laudrup's finishing afterwards :crybaby:. Just like we didn't win anything with the perhaps best Denmark team ever in Mexico 86 with Laudrup on that team aswell as Elkjær, Arnesen and other biggies :star: :kiss:.

About the WC, I rate Brazil, Argentina, France and Italy as favourites. I think it's very hard to chose who's the favourite of those, depends alot on the form on the day. However, I'd say that the football Brazil play is very beautiful, and I'll therefore be rooting for you. Also you have players like Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Rivaldo and others who I love dearly as they play a great part in promoting the game for it's beauty. I'm so damn tired of France, I like the Argies, and I wouldn't mind Italy.

So to sum it up, I'm hoping for Denmark, and if we should fail ;), I'll go for the triple R's and co :star:.

I remember Denmark in 86 very well,Beating Germany 2-0 and Uruguay 6-1 before crashing to Spain in the second round.Their style in 86 was very entertaining and great to watch.Elkjær-Larsen was the man for Denmark.

It's very unlikely we will play Denmark. If you notice, most of the teams are the ones we are likely to play......it's Brazil related question!

The question is if Brasil is a team to watch at the 2002 World Cup - i don't think so ! Brasils performance in the qualifiers was very poor and Scolari left some of the best palyers in Brasil or Europe.... I don't think that Brasil will play a big part in the World Cup this time.

You're just another fan that will be silenced and proven wrong come this summer for the World Cup. Don't worry and just watch Brazil perform Magic and music in your ears. :proud:

I had to vote for Argie. Somehow they seem to adept to different surroundings pretty quick and that will be the factor over there.
