True that. Many competitive teams though. That's the fun part of a WC, teams only need to get it together for one tournament.

ehh spain and germany probably have more quality and more experience but the tournament is in south america so i think brazil and argentina are the slight favorite i would give them around 25% both.. spain and germany 20%... 10% for a surprise italy, england, belgium, france..

well they have some quality players and their league is great so what do you expect

they were unlucky to play brazil in 2002 i think they could have made the final ( and still get beaten by brazil, but final>1/4 final )

im not writing off a team with that kind of players i dont care how much they have failed in the past ( if that lampard goal against germany wasnt disallowed who knows what could have happened.. or if they didnt choke in 2006 on those penalties against ricardo )

not favoruites obviously, but good enough to be a dark horse.

A league in which only 30% are eligible to play for the England NT.
