Spain, Holland, or Germany will win it.
England won't get out of group C Slovenia will win the group with the USA second.
It is the same every 4 years we get the English media hyping up the English team. "Our best chance ever" etc. They also seem to be under the delusion that most of our mediocre players are somehow "world class". They simply aren't; even the Spud Faced Nipper (Rooney) adored by the press as "the best striker in the world" rarely performs well; against the USA he was hardly seen.
I would love England to win the world cup, but you have to be realistic, our players aren't the best in the world and most of the time they don't seem to be as motivated as they should when given the great opportunity to play for their country. Perhaps when you are earning 100,000 pounds per week plus the motivation is not there.
