I'm going with the Germans... but I go with that side every World Cup.  But looking forward to some colorful LR banter leading up to the US/England group stage match. JB

Weel, Portugal stand a chance if Ronaldo is on fire - thet guy can win games by himself. But Portugal is in a tough opening group with Brazil.


 


Spain and Argentina are also in with a shout but again they have key players that will need to be fit and playing well -- Torres and Messi respectively.


 


As per the suggestions on our video - I don't think Poland will be lifting any silverware this summer (nice one Lucas) and as for the Ohio State Buckeyes, well... what is it they do?


I notice the Scandinavian's are all choosing Brazil....

The Swedes go for Brazil not because they are glory hunters, oh no. It's because they both wear yellow. There's a natural affinity.


Of the second-tier teams, people in the office are thinking Holland has a reasonable  chance. Mainly because Sneijder, Robben, and Van Persie, is a pretty good front three. And of course Van der Sar in goal.

Looks like Heavy Reading has once again identified an important trend, this one in world sport:

When your goalkeeper says he is "safeguard[ing] the gates to the fatherland," you have to feel confident that your team will be playing as though their survival depends on victory.
