2014 FIFA World Cup Thread - Page 3

post #37 of 1211

This could be the most wide open world cup in years. No clear favourite. No team really firing on all cylinders. I've just put a cheeky bet on Argentina. So much firepower and it being in south america swayed me

I can't argue that but you can't count out Germany, Spain or Brazil.   I'm really looking forward to it.

I would bet on Italy.Final of the Euro 2012+ hard group means strong start if they get out of the group phase.

This is a good question for the U.S. team.
post #41 of 1211

oh wow, that's tough.  

 

Demsey

Donovan

Altidore

Wondo

 

Although I like Gomez and E. Johnson.

Yeah I agree. Those are the four I would pick. I think they will make room for Eddie somehow. No idea who I would start against Ghana.

People should be paying close attention to Belgium during the world cup. They have a relatively straight forward group and have some of the most impressive young players around. Hazard and Kompany to name a few. Adnan Januzaj has also declared his allegience to Belgium so I wouldn't be surprised if he makes an appearance at the world cup.

Definately a team with massive potential for the future.

Belgiums getting quite a lot of attention lately, that team is loaded. Lukaku, cortois, mirallas, benteke

I think the only problem with the Belgium team in this world cup is the starting 11 is great but as a squad i think they are lacking a bit of strength in depth.

 

I'm not sure who is going to lift the cup but I am going to have a daft e/w bet on the French as they provide some value for money.

That is a bit of an issue with the Belgian team. They do lack the depth as other nations. But there bench can do a job.


I am really hoping that they will do well this year. Love seeing a young team doing well.

The US left Landon Donovan off the team.  They will not win or tie a game and be gone quickly.

I was not completely surprised, but this is in a way very shocking!  How could he not be valuable even as a sub?

That doesn't surprise me since he stepped away from the world cup qualifiers. They do need him. I see an early exit.

It appears Klinsman is just trying to get some experience for younger players.  Landon had to know this could happen taking all that time off.
