The World Cup .. One event that brings the masses together in unity .. Each person supporting their team with the fervor and passion like none other .. Normal Players become greats when they do well on the big stage and the stage gets nothing bigger than this.
''All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts '' as Shakespeare rightly said.
Right, through the generations we had the Peles, Maradonas , Cryuff , Ronaldo , Zidanes , Beckanbeur and many more .. I hope this year we will add one more name on this list ..
Lionel Messi .. Argentina
Messi, I feel is going to light this tournament on fire. I know he saved his best for the Knock out stages and have a feeling that most of his goals in the tournament will either be game deciders or equalizers. After all what can you say about the flea? Simply unstoppable!
Well .. Portugal Rank 3rd in the world .. The 2nd best player in the world Mr C ronaldo .. My reasons for them not going past the first round is they lack of a genuine Striker, Consider Ronaldo to be amazing midfielder and he would be doubly dangerous if they had someone good upfront .. Ivory Coast without Drogba will be able 2 match Portugal .. For Portugal to qualify .. They will have 2 win this one .. Draw and they are as good as out .. I dnt see them winning against Brazil and they just abt edge North Korea .. I vision Brazil And Ivory coast going through and even put a 50 quid wager on it = D !!!
I Dont see them progressing beyond the quarter finals .. They have an easy group and all and well either meet an resurgent Aussie squad / Good Ghana team in the 2nd group .. and should they pass that .. They meet Argentina .. who will beat them in a hard fought game .. A game that will be one of the spectacles of the World Cup .. !!! =)
The Golden Boot Award is given to the striker with the most goals. David Villa of Spain, Diego Milito of Argentina or Luis Fabaino will win it this time around.
My Teams for the Semis are Argentina , Spain , Brazil and France. This is what I am backing for, Argentina for their attacking prowess. Spain for their complete game, Brazil for their amazing defense, and France are my dark horses for the tournament. They might have lost to China in the friendlies, needed a Henry bit of magic to make France qualify from the qualifiers, still think they do well.
Teams capable of performing a few upsets are North Korea, Slovakia, and Serbia. And maybe with a little luck the Bafana boys.
My top 5 nominees for the Golden Ball trophy: Messi , Ribery , Xavi , Kaka and ? (You tell me what you think ).
Well I have done some simple Analytical maths, and the team most likely to win the tournament is Argentina. Let me explain, Europe and South American Teams have a share of 9 World Cups each. Since the World Cup began it's either been one South American followed by one European Team Barring. The Great Italian Squad that won in 34 and 38 and Brazil than won in 58 and 62. Coming back, this is the link ..
2010 Argentina (If the trends go this way I will be the happiest fan alive)
