I'm a huge soccer fan.
England has a great chance this Cup. They have quite a few stellar players.
However, Italy is one to watch as well. Very strong team.
Brazil, of course. Their roster looks like a hall of fame listing. An incredible stable of players starting with Ronaldinho.
Germany has the only advantage of being the home team but they haven't had much of a showing so far in games leading up to the Cup with their new more attack oriented style of play. They've scored more golas but have given up quite a few as well. They also have quite afew young players. However Kahn and Ballack both bring a wealth of experience.
Spain has always had a mediocre record in International play but this year they have a great mix of young and veteran players, a strong defense and a good striking duo.
Also keep an eye on Holland and the Czech Rep.
