My 2010 FIFA World Cup Picks

I’m so excited that the World Cup is finally back.  Last time around I was disappointed that my pick (Germany) didn’t win… they looked so good, but they lost to the eventual Champions —Italy.  This year is shaping up to be very exciting.  There are a number of teams that are strong and could have a nice run (I’m looking at you Spain) or lose because of their coach (Diego staring at you).

So who will be in the Final? well I’m not sure, I haven’t picked beyond 4 because it’s tough.  My dream scenario would be England v Argentina because of the implications; who could forget the hand of God? or the best solo play ever? Just imagine how awesome it would be if they meet in the finals with Maradona as coach.

Now the more likely final scenario for me would be Brazil v Argentina, I really want Spain to win it all, but for some reason I don’t see them being able to get there.  It’s just that the South Americans have so much football history that they are the natural favorites.  In under a month we’ll see if my picks pan out and I will probably update my final pick once I see the first few games.

In any case here are my world cup picks:

Top 16 (bold win)

  • France v Nigeria
  • England v Ghana
  • Netherlands v Paraguay
  • Brazil v Chile
  • Uruguay v Argentina
  • Germany v USA
  • Italy v Cameroon
  • Spain v Portugal

TOP 8

  • France v England
  • Netherlands v Brazil
  • Argentina v Germany
  • Italy v Spain

TOP 4

  • England v Brazil
  • Argentina v Spain

I hope you all enjoy the month-long football event as much as I will enjoy it!
