    World Cup predictions

    Apart from the obvious Brazil and Spain, I think the Dutch are a good outside bet. England will go out on penos. I wouldn't be impressed with Italy from what I saw of them in our group but they are never far away.

    Prediction: Argentina despite the very poor qualifying.

    England to fail to get out of group, look to be in terrible form and the group is not as easy as people seem to think.

    I am going for a Spain - England final.
    Reckon that Australia will do well, they have a cracking def/mid - if they only had a decent striker...............
    Also wud bet that South Africa wont qualify from their group.............

    Brazil or Spain.

    Brazil aren't as flashy as they used to be but they are solid and very hard to beat under Dunga.

    Spain probably have the best squad and easily the best midfield.

    Brazil are the obvious candidates, a bit light in the centre of midfield I think, how are Klebberson & Gilberto Silva still getting games!!! Apart from that they have strength all over but I have a sneaky feeling for the Dutch this time out. I am interested to see how Argentina fare as the have the quality to be the best team in it, Spain are too weak at the back imo, same for England (same could be argued for Holland mind) Italy will be well organised and difficult to beat but I think they'll fall short this time.
    In all probability it will be a Brazil v Holland Quarter Final which is a shame because that would be a cracking final, but I think whoever comes through that will win it.

    Don't think IC will beat Brazil, they should sneak past Portugal but they are as disorganised as each other, Portugal are a one man band & IC aren't a million miles from that either

    Very rare for a home country not to get out of its group. Anyone remember the last one if any?

    That would be my safe double.

    I think Holland will start well and rack up the goals before getting edged out by Brazil in the Q Finals. I'm looking forward to seeing more of Chile.

    I think Argentina will do well (fingers crossed). I'd stick some £ on em but 7/1 is too short.

    I could see Spain going out to Ivory Coast in the 2nd round.....

    Brazil to beat Spain in the final. Having the top scorer in David Villa is no consolation for the teary Spaniards.
    Argentina and Maradona to provide exceptional entertainment before exiting in the semis.
    England to crash out in the quarters. No outstanding scapegoat sees the blame evenly spread.
    Germany and Italy pale imitations of their former selves.
    Australia and Uruguay to exceed expectations. Luis Suarez to star.

    France to exit after a shameful refereeing decision. Charlize Theron pictured snickering.

    I'll be following Argentina.

    Of course there's always one or two big early shocks, but it's hard to bet against Brazil-Holland, France-England, Germany-Argentina and Spain-Italy QFs, leaving Brazil-France and Spain-Germany SFs. I'll go for Spain to beat Brazil in the final, Villa top scorer.

    Think this is 40/1, def a good each way bet considering the group they got and the easier route to the semis than then other half

    Yes, seriously. I've backed both as singles, as well as Higuain (20/1) and Cardozo (100/1) for top scorer. All e/w. I think England are going to go far, they've always had the players, this time they have a quality manager who could be the difference this time.

    I have it at 66/1 with Bet365. His scoring record for England is outstanding, defenders are going to have their eye on Rooney more than Crouch, which will hopefully give him more space.
