    But you probably have to. Especially since the opening game is this one team I can’t remember against Costa Rica.

    You’re quite right. I was having a moment. Over the past 24 hours I’ve changed my mind about zer Germans (as per the post above – only a fool would write off the hosts, and only a fool would write off the Germans) .I think the Italians may struggle to get through the first round (they’ve struggled in their warm-up matches against mediocre opposition) and – deep breath – I’m not 100% certain that Brazil going all the way is necessarily that foregone conclusion that many assumed it would be. They had a very easy run to the final in 2002, and can expect a much tougher test this time around. I’ll amend “Togo” accordingly. I was massively hungover when I wrote it.
