Argentina will win the next Soccer World Cup

There, I said it...

And I wish I could go to Germany in 2006 to celebrate with them...

Well, there are no other teams playing decently so I think we have the highest chance... and hope.

I'm crossing my fingers on Japan, personally.

But realistically, Australia SHOULD win this comfortably.

Now we have a better structured team, with younger players...

If we do not win, we at least make it to the final...

Brazil is doomed... they won too many times in the last couple of years. I would not have much hope as stretches do end.

with Wayne Rooney, and as long as Beckham is healthy, i think England may have a good shot at it.

but i'm really pulling for Ireland.

England can only do it if they play at home... after all, that is what history tells.

And, plus, the lads plays really boring soccer... the Euro Cup proved that.

Who's Beckham?

france would have a decent chance but zidane won't play will he?

italy relies on players that can't handle the heat (look at euro 04)

england...maybe?

my money's on brazil at this point.

it's way too early to be predicting who will win the World Cup

Germany will enjoy the home advantage and they've got two great talents in that Cologne striker and Schweinsteiger but they've got an ageing squad and no qualifying matches means they'll be shorter on match fitness than most teams

France are rebuilding after the retirements of Zidane, Thuram et al. They've got loads of talent like Giuly, Rothen, Govou, Luyindula and others waiting in the wings, but somehow I don't see them doing much

Argentina is a great side and they've had a decent 2004 and an exciting young striker in Tevez but in two years, who knows?

Brazil are always favourites but they have one of the most dodgy defences in the world and that's always a hindrance

England always look good on paper but inevitably choke. The inevitable arrival of Downing could solve the 'left-sided problem' and Paul Robinson is a much better keeper than James but still, choke.

Italy, for all their catenaccio, do have decent attacking prowess, but at Euro 2004 they relied too much on Vieri and since he didn't deliver, they got punished. Likewise for Spain and Raul.

Holland have the greatest players in the world but the trophy always seems one step too far.

As for Ireland, name all the Irish players who could cocievably play in the England squad (or some kind of UK&Ireland XI)? The Duffer, probably, the two Keanes, and until recently Given, but that's it.

USA have some great goalkeepers but only one of them can play at each time, and if I believe the hype Freddy Adu is the next Pele, but, let's face it, they won't win.
