    Providing the Spanish, Brazilians and Argentinians fall over as much as Togo’s players, I think France may be in with a chance.

    America, if it turned its mind to it, could not dominate a pissup in a brewery within a generation.

    I was very impressed with Vieira in the second half. In the first period he looked utterly disinterested and full of birthday cake. In the second half, where they needed their big-name players to play big games, he stepped up to the plate.

    Ian – you mean maybe england in the semi-finals…France/spain winner faces brazil/ghana in the quarters. If the “right” spain turn up i think they will be severely embarrassed, but who can say whether that will happen?

    Agree with you about the Swiss. I fancy they could have Ukraine, maybe even go further, but i would expect them to be outclassed by Argentina in the semi’s as for all their solidity i still think they lack a cutting edge. 66/1 at ladbrokes though for the trophy might be worth a couple of quid…

    South Korea – well, they just arent good enough, without home soil and dodgy referees. But i’ll miss their fans, the best moment of the world cup so far for me was when they scored against france, as i was in a pub (not far from you) with literally about 300 of them.
