    Yup...

    Also Portugal vs Mexico woo can't wait for that one they play that game last though.

    US has a tough draw...
    Brasil wow lol I think they are gonna score 20+ goals against Austrailia. Nvm its only groups so Brasil won't even try just play hard enough to advance.

    Pretty much the worst possible draw for Australia. Brazil, Croatia and Japan. The folks here are remaining optimistic though.

    World cup draw? (yawn) I realize soccer is the most popular sport in on the planet however there are bigger crowds to watch the Little League World Series than show up to watch soccer on any kind of regular basis in the U.S. Soccer league organizers have been trying to cram it down our throats for years telling us we have to watch it, like it, love because it is so popular everywhere else but today it is still less popular than poker and bowling in the U.S. Of course there are a couple of billion people in China that could care less if Portugal defeats Mexico.

    Tough draw for the Dutch. But we have 4 coaches in the world cup.
    Marco van Basten: The Netherlands
    Leo Beenhakker: Trinidad & Tobago
    Dick Advocaat: South Korea
    Guus Hiddink: Australia

    Yeah, only to be taken out by our German squad. :)

    Thank God for Michael Ballack and Oliver Kahn. So, looks like we have home field advantage this time around. We have a pretty easy group to punish.

    I must admit, our team isn't as good as all Germans wish it were. We have a very young squad, but very talented. But still, way off from Brazil in terms of talent. Brazil is infested with talented strikers. We'll see what happens, lets get it on in half a year!

    We`ll beat this crappy Germans in the semi-finals If they`ll arrive there. I have my doubts about the German team, it isn`t as good as it used to be.

    Tennis isn't really that popular if you havent noticed. Whats the comment with China? You sound like an angry kid who couldn't make the soccer team. If you just wanted to bash on soccer you shouldn't of even responded to this thread.

    This guy is being hailed as the saviour to Australian soccer. Now, he is apparently wanted by Manchester United to the successor or Sir Alex Ferguson.

    I`m curious what his next move will be. Currently he`s the coach of the Australian team, and the coach of the dutch no.1 club, PSV.

    Prince of Tennis: soccer is very popular in China!

    I hope Van Nistelrooy gets hit by a mac truck and breaks his pinky finger. lmao

    You have a good team, they were good in EuroCup 04 but couldn't make it to the end. Whatever, we will stuff your squad if we meet. The excitement mounts. ;)

    ^^^BTW, it doesn't look like your too proud of your country since you can't even show it for your location in your profile.

    It`s not always my location, but most of the times, YES it`s my location. I`m not very proud of my country, but in sports and some other things I am proud of my country.

    Yes the real name is football, in England they say football, but the Americans already had their football, so they invented the name soccer.
