Which team do you think will have the worst record in the upcoming World Cup?

My vote goes to Ecuador (sorry if we have any Ecuadorian here ;) ). They have shown no promise in the friendly matches. Moreover they have to play in a rather difficult group along with Italy, Croatia, and Mexico. The only chance they have is that they will be playing an out-of-shape Mexico. Other than Ecuador, Senegal is also located in a difficult group (France, Uruguay, and Denamrk), however since I ahven't observed any of thei games, I can't make any comments. South Africa is also not in a good shape, however they are not in a hard group...

Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Senegal etc. are all candidates for the last spot. (Sorry to any of these)

heck, goal difference will decide it, there will surely be some teams that lose al three games, but how many goals will they concede?

I don't think US are going to lose all three matches. They are in an easy group.
I hope Saudi Arabia loses all their three matches! :D (b/c they qualified to world cup instead of Iran :( ) . I hope Ireland can teach them a good lesson! :D

You are the first guy I hear say that Ecuador is basically terrible or as you put it, shows no promise. Let's see this year's friendly results:

Ecuador 1 - Guatemala 0
Ecuador 0 - Haiti 2
Ecuador 2 - Canada 0
Ecuador 1 - Turkey 0
Ecuador 0 - USA 1
Ecuador 3 - Bulgaria 0
Ecuador 0 - South Africa 0

Of those games only the Turkey and Bulgaria games they were missing less than 3 starters.

If you throw away the Haiti game as an aberration, they have only given up 1 goal in 6 games or 3 goals in 7 games.

Yes they have a tough group which they will probably not come out of. But I doubt that they will lose the 3 games. That is something they haven't done in years playing opponents just as tough.

:cool:

Ecuador won't finish last in my view. hey have a good team that is capable of causing the Italians, Croatians and Mexicans some headaches. I wouldn't be surprised if they end up with at least one win from the tournament.

Ecuador...

OK! I must admit that I haven't seen many matches from Ecuadorian side, however I saw a steady, non-aggressive team against USA. Well, maybe that match was an exception, along with the match against South Africa, for which I saw the highlights (there were no highlights!!! a couple of wide shots! :D ). I know all of the South American teams have enough talents to change the results of any football games, but I just stated my opinion. Who knows? Maybe they actually qualified from their group. :rolleyes:

could be any of these three: Ecuador, Tunisia (yet to score a goal in 2002) and South Africa

With all due respect to Ecuadorians, I think Ecuador is going to come last. Until today I didnt even know that they were playing in the WC.
