World Cup Final 4 - 02 Jul 06 14:01

Well, well well... Brazil is gone, The English are gone and THE USA is gone. So with those top favorites out, what do we have left?

A lot of good matches ahead, well actually just 4 and it's been reduced to the Euro Cup minus The Greeks.

Tuesday July 4: DeutschLand Uber Alles Vs. Gli Azzurri
Wow, what a great matchup and real nostalgic for all good fascists as Hitler and Mussollini join forces to entertain everyone again on the world stage. Fantastic matchup of contrasting styles. The home field advantage always seems to help immensely in the World Cup, so that is advantage Germany. Klose is very good, a real opportunist, but Luca Toni is more dangerous than Luca Brazzi (Corelone Famiglia enforcer). If it goes to PK shootout, you can mail it in. Germany has NEVER lost a shootout in the WC and the last time in any comp was 1976.

Consensus: My heart says Italy, my head says Germany

Wednesday July 5: Les Bleus Vs. THE Portuguese

Honestly, who would've thought before this whole thing that one of these two would be in the Final?
Henry and Zidane are pure class, Portugal is the epitome of low class, but they do have talent and grit -- and Deco will be back for them.

Consensus: Flip a coin on this one. Henry and Zidane are such great ambassadors of the game, so I'd like to see them in the final.

Reckon the French will score a goal in this game, and that is all that they will need to do get through. Germany is my new favourite to win the Final.

Germany and France with Germany to take out final. If there is to be an upset, will be Portugese over the frogs.

And All Blacks over the Wallabies this Saturday, though it will be close.

I reckon the difference between All Blacks vs Aussies will be at least 2 tries, and at least 15 points. Go All Blacks laugh

Yeah, that's what I am predicting...but since every favourite I have predicted so far to win it has gone out, I'm really not so sure!

Typical the only thing I got right was England going out at the quarters!!

Lets be having more of that type of football! Going to be late for work again tommorow, wanna see Zidane weave his magic again

Figo and Rinaldo are in doubt too. A great shame if the two best teams don't take the field.

Am crap at making predictions other than after the final whistle but the ABs will win by less than two tries. They haven't played as a team yet.
