the 2 matches i think will be mouth watering:
holland vs portugal, even though portugal has come out winner in previous occasion i think this time it will be holland, though chances are 50-50

spain vs france, what a match that will be!! zidane will be back and france even though their lack of scoring is still a good team. and then winner of that contest will meet brazil in QF, wow...

Germany v Argentina; England v Holland; Brazil v Spain; Italy v Switzerland

If the 2nd round games produces the likely winners, we will have 3 very tasty quarterfinals!

Its a pity that the 4 best sides will likely face each other though. Neither Switzerland nor Ukraine belong in the quarter finals of the WC.

Germany v Argentina; England v Holland; Brazil v Spain; Italy v Switzerland
Oh, and Italy vs Australia, too!! :)

In this round it has to be Italy vs Australia. I hope Italy won't be a dissapointment like Croatia did. Next round it's definitely going to be Argentina vs Germany.. oh and also France v Spain, and I want Spain to win :)

Germany vs Sweden was supposed to be exciting but the German's made it look like a peace of cake.
Argentina faced unexpected resistence from Mexico, they looked too comfortable and did finally walk away with the win.
Italy should win but I will be rooting for Australia. Expect some bad referring against the minnows. It has become a sickening trend in this years world cup.
Swiss and Ukraine - are you kidding me with this match ? Swiss will probably win it but I doubt if too many people will turn on their TV sets for this one. The winner of the Italy - Australia match will have a good chance to make it to the Semis without much hassle.
Portugal v Netherlands - I won't watch this match but I hope Portugal wins.
England v Ecuador - Ecuador is the third best team in South America. England fans may be up for a surprise KO. I'm hoping to see Eng in the next round.
Brazil v Ghana - Salivating soccer. Ghana will probably push Brazil in this one but my team (Brazil) is winning the world cup so I feel sorry for the GHana outfit already.
Spain v France - If you had asked me before the world cup, i would have sided with France but now I want Spain to send France back home. They are so much better in every department.

The first and the last quarterfinal will be greatttttttttttttttt. The third one will be a good one.

Brazil vs Ghana will be a thriller. if Ronaldo gets back his form then there will be no stopping for brazil and since Ghana is missing there main man, it will be very hard to keep brazilians down
