Official World Cup 2010 thread...Soccer

I thought it might be of interest to many...we got lots of Brits over here....Soccer crazy...many other Europeans...in general Soccer crazy....and with the female US Soccer Team being one of the best in the world and the menīs soccer regularly qualifying for the Worlds....I thought I open this thread.

The Soccer World Championship will be held in South Africa in 2010.....qualifiers are going on tonight....

Germany is playing Liechtenstein today....leading 2:0 already....Liechtenstein is one of the weakest teams around...such a small city-country...almost no citizens.....right now I think we are leading in our qualifying group...with Russia being second.

How are Your teams doing? To my knowledge England is doing quite well right now....my fianceīs team Cameroon had a set back yesterday, since they lost 0:1...but hey...there are still some games ahead and I canīt wait for the Cup to start....flags everywhere, people on the Streets, celebrating, having public viewings (our term for watching Sports games on huge screens....been very huge in Germany at the World Cup in 2006)....Itīs just mighty fun.......so how are Your teams doing? Who are Your favorite players? What is Your guess for the favorites of the Championships?

My team is Germany
my favorite German Players are Bastian Schweinsteiger and Lukas Podolski...and Ballackīs free kicks are good...sometimes..
the favorites? the usual ones I think...of course only if they qualify...England, Italy, Brazil, Argentina, Spain and even tho our game ainīt the fanciest (even tho improved since Klinsmann coached the national team) most countries always have us as one of the favorites...with good reason...seem to be a Championship Team...World Cup Final 2002, 3rd at the World Cup in 2006 and runner up at least yearīs European Championships

Ah yes, I can't wait.

I watched the 2006 WC at work online. It was great...enjoyed Germany's great run through the tournament. They were a great host.

Italy and France final was a classic with the head butt seen around the world.

I hope 2010 lives up to '06.

Yeah, the France Italy final was cool...but mostly because of the tension...and because they were two great teams on the paper...I donīt think it lived up to the hype....with the exception of the headbutt....too bad Zidane went down to that level...but I sure enjoyed the game on the net that appeared afterwards.....

From the soccer craziness 2010 will surely live up to 2006....South Africans are crazy about Soccer and the enthusiasm will be great...I guess the security will be good, too...the world is watching...there have been stampedes before in African stadiums...but itīs getting better and I think this World Championship will be great....the first time in Africa...of course they gave it to South mAfrica then....I hope my manīs team Cameroon will make it again and that Germany will play the Lions of Cameroon then in the Final....haha...no matter how...we will celebrate...

that´s alright....most of the Europeans don´t get the Football thing either....especially cos that egg is mostly in the hands...so why call it football.....
