True but generally in recent years they falter to deceive...

Tbh this is going to be the most shitty world cup from a viewers point of view. We will be seeing no south american or European beauties in the stands cheering for their teams.

Mostly men and migrants from India, pak, Bangladesh and Nepal will be filling the stadiums. We might see women in hijabs cheering. Ugh. Disaster of a world cup.

a few hundred mallu workers doesn't mean the stadiums will be full with actual supporters from those countries- this is the worst worldcup to date.

 

Pubs in the UK are already cancelling the screenings and England fans are treating this as a month long break from the Premier league without any interest to watch it.

Team with the best defence ,holding midfielder and Manager will win this cup .

It'll be anyway very difficult to survive the intense heat so you need a team with average age around 26ish and fitness in peak or prime.

Argentina have a good defense ,Holland also have a young dangerous side

only team with a realistic chance is Arg. post-2002, brasil are either lacking in talent or massive chokers, more so than SA

The 2006 team was great but got outclassed by Zidane. Ronaldinho failed to turn up in the whole tournament which was weird as he was playing freakishly well for Barcelona. Kaka around this time was also very good for AC Milan. Ronaldo was past his prime but Adriano was another crazy good player up front. He had wrecked Argentina in the Confederations cup a year ago.

That match convinced me that Zidane was the greatest of that era.
