Much as we love Brazil up here on the North Pole, we are not sure how much money we´d be prepared to put on a team coached by Luis Felipe Scolari winning the cup. Maybe a little, though - we can always hope!
Argentina are of course clear favorites - so clear favorites, in fact, that it´s almost inevitable that they will falter. So we will not put any money on them. But they would deserve to win - there´s no denying that!
Same with France - and besides, the harmony of that team is not what it used to be, we think.
We do like your suggestion of Italy - they of course don´t deserve to win, but they did well in Euro 2000, and it somehow seems logical that they could fight their way into the final. Remember what happened in 1994.
