USA can be in the top 10 because they are pretty decent now. I mean before I have to admit the US team sucked. Today however I think they have a chance to win the WC just as much as anyone. DO I honestly think they will win? No. dibs on Brazil or Germany there. I do think USA is going to leave an impression this year though


Thanks steamhead i couldn't of expressed it better.I'll back USA 100% not going to jinx them by saying they won't win.But i do believe they have a good chance.There keeping it lowfile in Germany there last game before World Cup begins was closed meaning no fans or other teams watching so they might have a secret up there sleeves.

Go USA!!!

Rugby Aus is good but NZ is better, and its alot tighter competition wise in the rugger. But with the attitude towards sport in Aus its hardly surprising, we got an Aus coach for the national team and the guy was a friggin nutter, he chucked half our decent players because he couldnt read a map and figure out England was as close to the training ground as some of the places in Scotland, utter muppet.

No, my vote still goes for the to Ameria. I mean any country that can come up the idea of the meatloaf that goes into the microwave instead of cooking during the series deserves to win.

Point taken but my understanding of the road to world cup you have to play against all teams.
Second last year we won the concacaf gold cup in 2005 are we saying that all teams USA went up against not good.USA has made it to the World Cup for five years.I admit that there are great teams out there and i'm including USA as being one of the great teams.

I'm not saying that USA is not a good team but they dont score goals like Lahm just scored!
Or beat the off side trap like Wanchope just did!
also i gotta say these goals were great to start the world cup with! :blink: :whistling:
