agree with hatebreed's choice... except for H, I think it will be spain and any other team but Arab.

This world cup will not have too many surprises like the last one I think. Everything is falling into places.

Australia is a pretty good team. Some of the attack I saw was simply amazing and they have upper hand with the physique but I think and want Croatia to kick some bottom.

1. Ukraine

Also Group G:
1. Switzerland

Yeah, I know S. Arab is not that good but if they can somehow beat Tunisia they might just make it to the 2nd round. We'll see..

Australia seem like a spirited team, they took advantage of Japan in the best way possible but it will not be the same against a disciplined Croatia who made the champions struggle. I doubt they'll settle for anything less than thrashing victory over the kangaroos.

And Group E:
1. Czech Rep
2. Italy

If your prediction is right....then we will be able to watch a probable Classic match Between Brazil Vs Italy in the 2nd round, and one former Champion will go away...

I have no problem with that, I will love it very much.:up:

Nahh, they'll settle for a 1-0 victory, then having to beat a dispirted Japan to go through.

As would Australia, frankly, because that means they have qualified, regardless of the Brazil and Japan games.

was really dissapointed the way Italians played with a 9-man US..
that was absolute shocking..

i would like autralia to progress further but barring a major upset i cant see it happening. italy is tremendous against lesser teams. they just keep sitting on the back and hit on the counter and if they go up it will be hard for australia to come back because of the strong defence italy got.

What are the differences between the Croatia and Australian teams? Australia has 7 players who were born in Croatia, speak their language whos parents migrated. Similarly, Croatia has three Australian born players whos choose to play for their parents country. So basically these two teams can be labeled as Croatia 1 and Croatia 2 team.
