I am not much of a football fan and my homeland's team did not made it to the Finals anyway, but I would like to see the Sweden Team as champions.

p.s.: England's game is just not my kind of play

May the best team win!

I gave up supporting England when they drew with the USA. :)

I think the problem with the English team is that all the big local teams (Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, etc.) are all getting players from abroad, and while these players are very good, they can't play for the English team since they weren't born in England. Many young English footballers aren't getting trained well enough to make the big teams, and so only the very few English players in those teams - most of whom aren't the best - get to play in the World Cup.

We will beat Slovenia and get to the last 16. Rooney is brilliant, but has suddenly got a habit of falling over too much, which is why we are bad.

Germany all the way for me!
Very disappointed they lost to Serbia, but things like that do happen (look at Spain...) and Serbia's got some pretty decent players, so I don't think Germany needs to feel bad at all.

As for the English team... while I am a big fan of Liverpool and Steven Gerrard, I just never really thought that all these great English players, when put together, are all that good. They attacks were certainly not as effective as the Spanish, the German, or the Argentines' and their defense is only okay at best. Oh but who knows? Maybe they'll win their last game and surprise us all.

Go Germany!!!!

They should beat Slovenia. If they bring off Rooney for Crouch, and change to a 4–1–2–1–2 formation, with Gerrard behind Heskey and Crouch.

I'm keeping track of the goings-on with interest, largely thanks to my new son-in-law. He coaches for the Special Olympics and is very much a fan and has explained some things about it to me. Cheering for the UK, here.

The UK includes Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. England could beat all of them.

Do you reckon we could win on Wednesday? (England)
