My take on the WC so far:
We have a great chance of getting past Germany, as long as we don't let it go to penalties. We seem to be playing our best football when it matters, and there's no room for error. The Germans are very youthful, and have an inexperienced keeper who looked shaky against Ghana. If Schweinsteiger isn't fit, some combination of Gerrard, Lampard and Barry will run shit in central midfield, and since Boateng's out, Milner will take the piss out of whoever's in at left back for Germany.
The USA/Ghana result will be irrelevant, because the winner (USA being my current pick, Ghana can't finish at the minute) will get their shit thoroughly ruined by Uruguay.
Honda is a fucking beast for Japan, wouldn't be surprised to see him go to one of the big three leagues (Premier League, La Liga, Serie A) when this is over.
Gutted for NZ, would have liked to see them go through, if only for the sheer absurdity of seeing them declare a national holiday just because they got into the second round. I could see them being a threat in 4 or 8 years if the game gets proper funding and more attention over there.
lol, france (again)
Picks for tomorrow:
Ivory Coast to beat DPRK by at least three goals. Portugal to beat Brazil, maybe 2-1 or 3-2. Spain to beat Chile narrowly. Switzerland to beat Honduras.

Yesssss. Said Spain would win, which in turn wins me money from my work syndicate.
Also, did you notice how the cheeky fuckers had already had a winners star put on their shirts when they pit their red shirt on to lift the trophy. Oh well, in 2014 we'll be back singing 48 years of hurt lol
